    The Toyota Sera is an unusual car -- and today I'm reviewing the Sera to show you what makes it so weird. I'm going to take you on a tour of this Toyota Sera, and I'm going to show you all of its quirks and features -- and then I'm driving the Sera to show you what it's like to get out on the road.

    If they had made it rear drive it could have been a great style replacement for the corolla coupe and 3 door.

    If this was a Japanese only production car then why are the rear speakers described in Engrish?

    The ironic bit is that Toyota didn't have a strategy for Sera. Other manufacturers continued to build upon the "inspirational door design" and Toyota went back to manufacturing conventional doors for it's cars!

    Che sera, sera? I wonder if that's what the executives who whip up doofus names for Asian cars were thinking: if they say it enough customers will eventually believe that it's Italian?

    What if the pass door only opens less because someone switched out the OEM strut but did not know it was an inch shorter? LOL!

    I never usually like Toyotas... but I utterly adore this car. Haven't seen one in years, but there used to be quite a few driving around here in Ireland (direct Japanese imports used to be quite popular because they drive on the same side of the road as us). I think they're so special and they have such a neat, resolved shape.

    Never heard of it before . Looks like someone locked a Subaru SVX and a Diamond Star car in a garage with romantic music and gave birth to this .

    Long story short, McLaren is only British hyper car company that has a butterfly doors, inspired by Toyota Sera's butterfly doors during the development of F1.

    Modding one of these would be amazing. Imagine if you dropped it a bit and tinted the windows - threw in a turbo charger and a bit more HP. What a beast. 20 year old me who was obsessed with music would have loved this over the shitty ford I ended up getting.

    I shuddered to see the 90s NX. I had a 1988 Nissan Pulsar NX (SE for those extra few horsies and 5spd manual for the fun). I think it had the best styling of all the NX generations. The most fun econobox I ever owned. I’ve yet to find one in good condition, it’s a shame.

    In the different mode, the speakers in the back actually rotate to point upwards (within casing)... pretty interesting feature.

    11:54 "Nothing particularly thrilling or exciting here"... well in today's standards it may be normal. But to put that into perspective back in its release there were many cars on the street that had none of the below:
    Fuel injection
    Twin Cam
    16 Valves and
    Unleaded
    Each one is a special aspect that sets it apart from the majority of cars and having even one performance feature is a special feature. Think of it as this:
    Turbo = Fuel Injection
    Hybrid = Unleaded
    Start stop = 16 Valves
    Lithium powered (concept of more power for same weight or space) = Twin Cam (More power for same displacement or economy)
    In 30 years all the above will be standard and their specialness will be looked over by another missing out on the impact it had.

    At the time the Sera had the engine, doors, unique body styling... but as looking at Doug's commentary the only thing that has withstood the test of time (that still stands out today) is only the Doors.

    Stance it and it would look so dope. Better yet put it on some airbags. Pop a muffler on it
