The Toyota Celica was introduced to the market in 1970 and remained in production for over 35 years, with more than 4,129,626 units produced. However, there are no exact figures for how many Toyota Celica GT-S were made.
The Toyota Celica has always been one thing: a small, well-made sports car that can accommodate up to four passengers. But the GT-S version is quick, nimble, and acceleration is extremely sensitive. With an overpowered engine combined with a six-speed manual transmission, acceleration is quick, but it can sometimes be rough to start smoothly, especially at low speeds.
For those not keen on the manual sports car, it came with a four-speed automatic option, which may smooth out the touchy accelerator. Handling is excellent, and the car performs well, but most people encounter one primary problem with the Celica GT-S: too much engine for too little car. The GT-S is equipped with a 180-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, but the car only weighs 2,500 pounds, making it challenging to drive responsibly in the GT-S.
That said, it’s a lot of fun—and anyone who can get their hands on one is bound to have a darn good time (driving responsibly, of course).
