From shops to showrooms past, present, and future — Toyota Untold goes beyond the cars and into the journeys, featuring exclusive stories of drivers, engineers, fans, and experts from the Toyota/Lexus family.
The Iconic 2000GT: A Supercar Fit for a Superspy
We’re back in the time machine for this week’s episode of Toyota Untold, visiting Japan in the late 1960s where we jump into the driver’s seat, or passenger seat (famously), of Toyota’s first supercar, the massively influential 2000GT.
Tundra Series: Fireside Chat with Jeff Buchenroth & Kevin Kavanagh (Part 1)

HQ Confidential: New Product Showcase
It seems like everything has changed in the last eighteen months. Live events and promotions, specifically, are an area that will likely never be the same. This summer, Toyota leaned into this shift with a brand new, all-inclusive event space hosted at Toyota USA headquarters in Plano, Texas, that previewed upcoming news for select members of the automotive media landscape. The result was a one-of-a-kind, multi-day brand presentation, one that very well could redefine the model moving forward.
The ‘79 Radstock Starlet: A Restoration Story
Grab some popcorn, Josh Brooks has a story to tell. As a boy, a vehicle in his neighborhood caught his eye — a stunning ‘79 Toyota Starlet. The experiences shared by Josh, the car, and its original owner in the decades following were as uncommon as they were endearing. This unlikely restoration tale, based in the small town of Radstock, England, will warm your heart and make you long for the nostalgic smell of a carburetor engine. We’ll let Josh explain.
Fast & Famous: Cinema’s Most Recognizable Supra
Craig Lieberman, original owner of Paul Walker’s scene-stealing Gladiator Supra from “The Fast and the Furious” and Technical Advisor on the first and second films in the franchise, sheds light on what it was like to lend his expert knowledge and eye-popping vehicles to such a high-profile production. Buckle up, this one’s fast.
The Psychology of Driving
The driver-vehicle relationship is changing quickly. Toyota research scientists, John Lenneman, PhD., and Josh Domeyer, PhD., join the show to talk us through the deliberate, and surprisingly cooperative, scientific processes that go into this progress.
Kelsey and Tyler do such a great job here. What a smart idea and a great listen. As a business partner of Toyota, this is a convenient way for me to keep up with the brand in a different way than before!
Well worth a listen.
If you’re into cars at all, and even if you’re not, this podcast has something for everyone. As a dealership employee at a Lexus dealer I find each episode very fascinating.
