    Toyota May Bring Back MR2 Sports Car As a Hybrid | Green Business | Reuters

    "I have many a fond memory of my friend's old supercharged Toyota MR2. The peppy two-seater was a rarity for its day; an affordable, fun, mid-engine sports car from the generally conservative Toyota...

    Reportedly, the car would be called the MR-S (Can someone explain to me why most modern cars lack proper names? Would you like to drive a Mrs.? Er, on second thought, don't answer that) and would use a reworked version of the Prius hybrid synergy system."

    More media churn - must be the day for it. Best Car in Japan has reprinted speculation from blogs and now that article is being recycled through the blogs. We had posts on this a week ago on the first round.
