Filed under: Classics , Coupe , Videos , Toyota Brian Karasawa’s gen-one Toyota Celica is, in a word, badass. As a long-standing fan of the marque, the doting owner has tried to both restore and improve his Celica keeping period-correct modifications in mind. The 20R/22R mashup engine is outputting roughly 185 horsepower and graced with a lot of JDM-specific parts and modifications. Clearly, the exhaust has been upgraded from stock, as clips of the orange Toyota in motion are accompanied by one hell of a nice sound. Tastes clearly vary, and there’s not as much love for the first-wave of Japanese metal as there is for similar era American-iron, but we’re pleased to see these cars finally getting more time in the spotlight. Scroll down below to see why we’re stoked, and consider cruising your local Craigslist for late 1970s and early 1980s Japanese coolness (before we get there first).

Filed under: Car Buying , Hybrid , Toyota A Toyota executive has said that the automaker’s hybrid Prius model may not reach its 2013 goal of selling 250,000 units in the US marketplace. Bill Fay, group vice president for Toyota’s US sales, told Reuters , “The 240,000 to 250,000 range is kind of where we’re settling our sights for the Prius family.” The first-generation Prius, a five-passenger model, was introduced to the States in 2001 (its arrival made it the second mass-produced hybrid, after the two-seat Honda Insight ). The second-generation model arrived in 2004, followed by the current third-generation design that arrived for the 2010 model year. The automaker has subsequently added the Prius V , a hatchback wagon (shown above) and the Prius C , a subcompact hatchback. As of March, 2013, cumulative worldwide sales of the Prius had reached 3.67 million units. Last year, Toyota sold 236,659 Prius models in the US. However, sales of the model have fallen 5.1 percent in the first six months of 2013. In response, the automaker has boosted its marketing for the model, and the promotions are expected to continue through at least July.
