Second Generation Models (MkII)

3.2 Second Generation Models (MkII)

The first MR2 MKII (s/n 00001) was built in Sagamihara
plant in January 1990 (as a 1991 model year automobile).

The 10th digit of the VIN identifies the model year of the car,
M=91 N=92 P=93 R=94 S=95 T=96.

It appears that the "Number" of the car doesn't mean much. There are
reports of 93 model years cars from 1/92, #171 in 3/92, #52 in 8/92,
#223 in 11/92 and #965 in 11/92.

Please note: This was in here from before but I do not believe
it to be accurate. If anyone has any facts about this, let me know.
The mix of Turbo and NA cars is about 80% Turbo, 20% NA through 1993, after which production of NA cars basically stops (drops to around 10 cars per month, for worldwide distribution!)
