About Toyota Solara

  • The Toyota Solara moved production to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky for the second-generation model.
  • Production began in July 2003 for the coupe and February 2004 for the convertible.
  • The convertible was offered exclusively with the 3.3-liter V-6 engine and the 5-speed MMT automatic transmission.
  • From the model year 2005 to 2008, sales declined from roughly 50,000 units annually to just over 20,000.
  • After the 2008 model year, the coupe was discontinued due to declining sales, but the convertible, which accounted for the majority of units sold, continued to be produced.
