Created to appeal to a demographic of more sport-minded drivers than those who prefer the Toyota Camry sedan, the Camry Solara aspired to blend “sporty” looks and style with spacious practicality. Prior to the production of the Camry Toyota camry l, the 2-door version of the Toyota Camry was simply known as the Camry Coupe. The first generation Camry Solara went on sale in the third quarter of 1998 as a 1999 model to replace the Camry Coupe.

2-liter four-cylinder engine was replaced with the same 2. 4-liter four-cylinder engine offered on the redesigned 2002 Camry, the 2AZ-FE. This new engine was chosen because it featured the same gas mileage as the previous engine, except it offered more power and the addition of VVT-i, a technology that improved performance and reduced emissions. The Solara moved to Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky for the second generation model. Production started in July 2003 for the coupe and February 2004 for the convertible. The convertible was offered only with the 3. 3 liter V-6 and the 5-speed MMT automatic transmission. In late 2005 for model year 2006, the five-speed MMT automatic transmission replaced the four-speed automatic on four-cylinder models, and minor changes were made to the optional power driver’s seat.
In June 2006 a restyled 2007 Solara was introduced, with new LED taillights, a revised rear bumper, and a redesigned front fascia. The second-generation Solara sold below expectations, as it inherited the unexciting handling from its Camry parent. Despite the structural redesign, the convertible was still criticized for soft handling that did not feel sporty, and for significant body shake. Despite statements that the convertible might be sold until at least 2010, production was quietly suspended in December 2008, with sales continuing from inventory to gauge demand. In June 2009, Toyota announced that sales had not met expectations, and that production would not resume. The name Solara was previously used on a motor vehicle by Peugeot, with their Talbot Solara, a notchback variant of the Chrysler Alpine hatchback developed by Chrysler Europe before their takeover by Peugeot in 1978.
