Toyota manufactured the Celica sports coupe from 1971 until 2005 for the American market. Several models were only available in overseas markets, including models from the car's final year of Japanese production in 2006.
The Celica went through seven generations of designs during its production, with the largest change coming in 1985, when the car was switched from a rear-wheel drive to front-wheel drive platform. While the Celica was always intended as an entry-level model, there were several overseas models that had an impressive performance for a car in the Celica's class. The most famous of these is likely the mid-90's Celica GT-FOUR sold in the Japanese market, which had a 251-horsepower engine and served as a homologation car for Toyota's World Rally Championship team.
