  • 2018 Toyota 86

    The replacement for the Toyota 86 will leapfrog the Toyota Supra in driving enjoyment, if a report from Australia is to be believed. Australian outlet MOTOR says chief Toyota 86 engineer Tetsuya Tada let slip that the company has a development team in place for the next generation of the company's small 2+2, and that team believes it has to "make a new 86 that surpasses the Supra" because "that is what the customer expects." While Toyota's local PR team apparently hedged on Tada's statements, essentially saying that nothing was guaranteed just yet, Toyota has confirmed elsewhere that the...

  • 2018 Toyota 86 GR

    Toyota looks to be readying a new version of its 86 sports car developed in part with its Gazoo Racing motorsport department. A teaser video was posted to social media on Monday along with the tag a “passion for speed,” though there isn't much we can decipher from the short clip. The teaser was posted to the Twitter account of Toyota's branch in Spain, so it's possible the campaign is simply promoting a local launch of an existing 86 model with Gazoo Racing's GR branding, like the 86 GR or 86 GR Sport already available in Japan. Todo es cuestión de la pasión por la...

  • Toyota 86 Cup Car

    The Toyota 86 really sits in a segment all its own. It's a no-frills coupe with a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-4 that produces a modest 205 horsepower—the pinnacle of "slow car fast." But that doesn't mean it can't be fun, and the new Toyota 86 Cup Car racer is here to prove that. Toyota announced the 86 Cup will make its racing debut at the Pirelli World Challenge on August 11, where it will compete in the TCA class. Its rivals include the Mazda MX-5 Cup and Honda Civic Si. The Toyota 86 Cup was born from Toyota Racing Development and DG-Spec Racing after Toyota decided to...

    In stock form, the Toyota 86 is a fun machine. Sure there are a number of folks who cry out that the sporty coupe needs more power, but it's pretty darn enjoyable as it comes from the factory. Still, we do agree that more power wouldn't be a bad thing here. This is a chassis that's itching for some...

  • 1984 Toyota AE86 drift car

    The Toyota AE86 is a legend among drift fans. “AE86” is actually the internal code for rear-wheel-drive models from the fifth-generation Corolla family, launched in the 1980s. The models became popular among Japan’s drifting scene because of their affordability and ease at which to modify. Original AE86s have exploded in popularity over the past decade, thanks in part to the Initial D manga series as well as the arrival of the 86 sports car, which is billed as a modern successor. Toyota has now unveiled a fully restored 1984 AE86. The car is owned by Australian drifter Beau...
