Anybody has more racing models than Toyota?

Thinking about almost all car manufacturers have at least one "racing" model, like Hyundai's Tiburon, Mazda's MX-3 (Now RIP), etc... it always calls my attention how many racing cars did Toyota put on the market... let see if I remember them all:


MR-2


Supra


Celica


2000GT

... and for many...


Corolla GT-S

Did I miss anyone?

I wonder how many Foosters have pics of themselves driving a 2000GT... I'm sure there's a Pcad one somewhere.

EDIT: I did miss one... as Siu pointed out, behold the Toyota 800:


Toyota 800

Not to mention there was multiple versions of each of those. For example, the Supra went through 4 generations with the pictured one being the fourth. Basically like 4 different models tbh, they were all completely different.

Datsun/Nissan has a few. From the Toyota ones mentioned, I guess we're talking street legal only?

1000/1200/1500/1600/2000
240/260/280/300/350/370
Silvia
Skyline/GT-R

I dunno all that much about Nissan stuff, but I'd imagine they come close to the 'yotas.

for the current line up, you can add the lexus IS series, which is a pretty decent RWD car, very similar to BMW 3 series.
But there is one key thing that wouldn't qualify many of those cars as a race car and that is they weren't made purely for homologation.

you also left out the toyota 800, which was a proper sports car used in races.

For most Homologation specials, proper race cars in street legal trim and produced in minimum quantities, it would have to be ford.
Ford: Escort RS1600, Sierra RS500, RS200, Sierra RS Cosworth, Escort RS Cosworth, Sierra Sapphire Cosworth... etc.

For nissan, I think the only ones that really fit into 'pure bred race car' is R390.

the skyline, SX and Z are sports cars, really good sports cars, but they're not purely designed for racing.

I want a Corvette. Maybe a nice used one for my 60th birthday. If I live that long. Which is rather unlikely.

As per myself, I'll never forget the Mazda MX-3. I fell in love with it when it came out and got myself one in 1994. It was my main car for over a decade... Even tho it was the 4cyl one, the thing smoked everyone.


Mazda MX-3 in all it's glory (not mine, mine was blue and never was as clean)


^This^ was young Rube' with his MX-3

The Tiburon is RIP as well. Hyundai replaced the econo-coupe with the Genesis Coupe, a rear-wheel-drive pony car with 210 or 306 hp, depending on engine. Just sayin'.

How can you talk about the mx-3 without mentioning the mx-5? It's only the greatest sports car of all time.
