The Toyota 2000GT is at the sharp end of the conversation about the collectibility of Japanese cars.
It debuted in 1965 at the Tokyo Motor Show. It was designed by Toyota in collaboration with Yamaha. Quantities were very limited, with only 351 production units built from 1967 to 1970. One could arguably say the Toyota 2000GT was Japan's first 'supercar'. At minimum, it had a significant impact on the way the rest of the world viewed the Japanese auto industry. The 2000GT showed Japan, known as the maker of practical, conservative commuter cars, was capable of building a world-class sports car.
