I don't know in the rest of Europe-World, but in Spain rumors says it name will be "GT 86" Confused

but "86"...Why? our hachis are Corolla GT, Levin, Trueno and are AE86, if this car is a re-editon of ours, why Toyota don't name Corolla GT, Levin or Trueno??...or celica. From my point of view, this name is ridiculous, pure marketing using one of the best cars Toyota has built

On the other hand, in general I like the car

Is it wrong for toyota to cash in on the 86's popularity? I think not, they deserve it after taking the time to recreate something similar for today's market (instead of more teethless celica's/mr2's). Shame I wont be able to afford one anytime soon.

'84 Corolla AE86 GT coupe......daily driver
'88 Volvo 360 GLT..................trackday beater
'81 poor guy with a money-pit

Since the AE86, Toyota never made any other small NA FR sport car.
(all the celica since 85 and corolla since 1987 are FF layout)

In that way, we have to admit it's a revival.

There is a pretty good reason for me to loath the car: it has been hyped too much. Undecided
Apart from that I must admit Toyota (and Subaru) did a very very very good job to fill a gap that they created themselves twenty five years ago. The car is everything the consumer wished for. The only question is how bad the price will be in Europe. Wink

1982 - TA60 Carina 4dr sedan - fun cruiser

2013 - Honda Civic sport - daily driver

Most important news are that the first test drives talk about a PURE DRIVER'S car, comparing the steering wheel feeling with the top of line 911 and the overall experience more focused than than the Miata. Hurray!
