    Official: Mitsuoka manages to make Orochi even weirder with Evangelion edition
    1416772800

    Sports cars don't come more bizarre than the ungainly Mitsuoka Orochi. We thought we were rid of the puckered-face, Toyota-powered Japanese oddity when Mitsuoka revealed the Final Edition earlier this year, but it seems the Orochi has a little more left to give of its awkwardness, as you can see ...

    Video: Sports 800 is a progenitor of Toyota performance
    1416445140

    There's an automotive axiom that claims it's more fun to drive a slow car fast, than a fast car slow. If that's the case, then pushing a Toyota Sports 800 around must be one of the most exhilarating experiences behind the wheel in the world. With just 800cc of displacement from a two-cylinder ...

    1416142800

    It's been eighteen years since we last saw the Legend nameplate in Acura showrooms here in North America, but in Japan it's still very much alive as Honda's flagship sedan.

    Report: Lexus RC media event in Japan canceled over lack of interest
    1416092400

    It's a good thing senior editor Seyth Miersma doesn't live in Japan, or he wouldn't have been able to snap a photo like the one you see here, of a fresh-off-the-line Lexus RC F on hand at a first drive for media. That's because Toyota's Japanese arm has outright canceled its RC press launch. ...

    Video: Manga stylized Toyota Aygo takes on Godzilla
    1415988000

    Japan has given the world so much to enthuse over. We're not sure the Toyota Aygo is necessarily one of them as much as, say, the Scion FR-S or Lexus LFA (especially since it's actually made in Europe), but for many Nipponophiles, the centuries-old artistic discipline of Manga certainly is. And ...

    Video: WATCH: GoPro checks out Tokyo's automotive night life in stunning 4K
    1415304000

    There's something bizarrely fascinating about Japanese car culture, especially around Tokyo. The metropolis packs people tightly together in a way that would seem to make owning any car tough. And yet, there's still enough enthusiasm around anything with an engine to support everything from wildly ...

    Official: Toyota pimps out Esquire van for Japanese businessmen [w/video]
    1414616400

    A few months back we reported on a dealership owner in Japan who was petitioning Toyota to make a luxury van. The problem, he reasoned, was that he couldn't take as many friends, colleagues and clients around with him in his Lexus LS, and his Toyota Alphard van wasn't luxurious enough. Well, it ...

    Video: OK Go's latest amazeballs music video was paid for by Honda
    1414515300

    When Honda unveiled the slimmed-down βeta version of its Uni-Cub last year, it might have thought the minimalist electric vehicle would find its most enthusiastic audience inside office buildings, where it would simultaneously lighten the load of worker drones and perhaps inject a bit of ...

    Official: Toyota casts off in Ponam-31 motor yacht [w/video]
    1414339200

    Some Japanese automakers focus purely on cars, while others dabble in all sorts of motorized transportation. Honda, for example, makes everything from motorbikes to jet aircraft. But while Toyota may be known principally for automobiles, it also makes a line of boats. And this is the latest. The ...
