The Toyota MRJ concept from the 1995 Tokyo Motor Show was a proposal for a 2+2 convertible sports car.

The MRJ was originally displayed as a potential successor to the second generation MR2. However overwhelming negative feedback from MR2 fans helped to persuade Toyota to rethink their product plans. So instead they decided to develop the Mark III MR2 as a strict two seater based on the Toyota MR-S concept from 1999.

Designed at Toyota's Brussels design studio the MRJ concept featured a fully retractable roof system, dubbed the 'Aerocabin', which opened and closed at the touch of a button.

Toyota MRJ Press Release from 1995:
"At Toyota, we know exactly what a sports car should be: responsive to the driver's every command, quick off the mark, and nimble on a twisty road. We've always felt the midship engine design was the best way to meet all those goals, and ensure unprecedented comfort. The Toyota MRJ has all the sportscar characteristics a midship engine car can offer, plus extra utility that lets you add sporty driving to your everyday life. Enthusiasts today want the joy of a sports cars with a personal touch-with individualist form and coloring. The Toyota MRJ fits the bill perfectly."
