JDM, of course, refers to the Japanese Domestic Market—basically, cars that are only sold in Japan. Over time, though, the term's meaning has expanded to include Japanese-made cars exported to other countries.
JDM stands for Japanese Domestic Market. In other words, they're a specific model of vehicle that was only available in Japan and offered exclusively to Japanese car buyers. Some more popular brands that are considered JDM include Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Suzuki, Subaru, and Toyota.
Obviously, cars like Porsche 911 and BMW 3-Series are about as far from being JDM as possible, since they are produced by non-Japanese manufacturers, which don't even have production facilities on Japanese territory. Some manufacturers have to adapt their cars to suit other markets, they wish to sell at.
The Subaru Impreza WRX and STi are some of the most reliable JDM cars you can import.
Following the world premiere of the new 2022 BRZ in North American specification last November, Subaru and Toyota held a joint-press conference Monday morning in Japan to introduce the JDM versions of the BRZ and GR 86 respectively.
It's an FR-S engine. There are no FR-S's in Japan, just 86s, so no such thing as a JDM FR-S engine. There are only minor differences between the 86 and FR-S engine, because of driver orientation.
For Japanese Domestic Market enthusiasts, Toyota's renaming the FR-S to the 86 has made it tougher to stand out from the crowd. JDM, of course, stands for Japanese Domestic Market, and it also stands for a very popular automotive subculture in North America. ...
JDM literally means that the item/car was sold IN Japan and FOR the Japanese market, but it's morphed into something else completely in the west. It's kind of a catch all for "cool japanese car stuff" amongst car nerds these days. So no, we don't have JDM cars.
Cars manufactured for the Japanese domestic market have been growing in popularity since the late 1990s. Many car enthusiasts are attracted to JDM cars in different continents such as North America, Europe, and Asia. Popular brands include Honda, Subaru, Toyota, Mazda, Suzuki, Lexus, Mitsubishi Motors and Nissan.
The Toyota 86 is available in Japan from Toyota's Netz Store and Corolla Store line of dealerships; the 1980s Corolla Levin and Sprinter Trueno were sold at the same networks.

|Successor||Scion iM/Toyota Corolla iM|
Scion isn't coming back. The FR-S will become the Toyota 86. In the U.S., the iA – which is already a Toyota here – will be called the Yaris iA.
|Scion xD (XP110)|

|Curb weight||860 kg (1,896 lb)|
The model went out of production for other markets in 2015. Despite this, the iQ remains a benchmark for engineering innovation, and the environmental message that drove its development has never been more relevant than it is today. See Toyota's current model range by clicking here.
A further development of Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive technology, the iQ EV's fully electric powertrain comprises an air-cooled, 47 kW electric motor/generator, a 150 cell, a 12.0 kWh, 277.5 V battery pack, a 3 kW water-cooled battery charger, an inverter, an DC/DC converter and a motor speed reduction mechanism.
The Scion iQ was last produced for the 2015 model year, so you can't buy a new one. There are only a handful of new cars you can buy for what you might pay for a used 2015 Scion iQ. The least expensive new car on the market is the 2019 Nissan Versa, which has an MSRP of $12,460.
