I've been waiting for Toyota to refresh the 86 for a while! I've always had an appreciation for the FR-S/BRZ/86 ever since it first came out. It brings things back to simple fun sports cars that anyone can enjoy.

Toyota is finally bringing GRMN to North America and hopefully this means more power baby! Hopefully Toyota botch promoting this like they did with the Supra.

HAHA. Yea. The Supra issue was all in the name. If they had called it anything else people would have loved it.

HOWEVER... I should say that while all the purists bitched about the Supra, it seems to be doing really well. It was certainly the biggest car at SEMA last year.

Thing with the Supra though is that the 86 always had the better platform, weighing 500 lbs less and with better steering feel. The 86 just needed more power. This new GR86 should be even more fun than the Supra to drive and definitely better than the 1st-gen BRZ/86/FR-S.

Engineering Explained agrees with me
