What car are you spotting here?

I know them all basically and can help!

But we only sold AE86 here in Portugal, no SR5 or 1.6SR's.....

All 4AGE, 5speed manual, 2doors with LSD, 3doors with an open diff.

Then I wonder what my car is...Portuguese, 3-door and with an LSD (but the latter can be an aftermarket)

Its a Portuguese 86, the thing is that I thought I saw drum brakes, so that made me really confused, and that's why I asked in here. But then checking other pics and videos, I've seen its disc brakes and not drums, so yeah, it was all my mistake for not paying enough attention.

Portugal also sold 2 doors? Huh
That's new to me. But then again: I've never found a Portuguese brochure. If you know where to find one I would be very interested obtaining one!

We never had anything!

The 2 doors were kinda a trick. We were doing the championships and rallies back in the days. The teams could order them.

With the order, 50% of the car had to be paid via deposit. The other half after a couple of months' time for the car to arrive.
By then, some of the teams were not able to meet the order and cars would get either to other teams, or license plates to be sold as a regular order.

That's why all 2 doors come with LSD (they were supposed to go for tracks, and rallies).

Great strategy Tongue

Very interesting! So that means all Portugese 3 doors with LSD had their internals swapped? Tongue
Also I recently bumped into an auction at Catawiki with two scale models of Portugese rally cars and the models were also made in Portugal and one of the two was a two door Corolla Twin Cam 16 valve. So that definitely fits in your (his)story! Hurray!

Banpei,

Our history for 2 doors is that one.
3door hatchbacks came for two reasons.
- To be sold to customers
- To race like the 2doors.

So, the one's license plated, none has LSD from the factory or air con for ex.
The ones that have, are either purchased as an extra or its aftermarket.

Regarding the race-spec ones, probably those came already with LSD, and you will find those if by any reason they were converted to regular cars (licence plates) and are now driving as usual Smile
This is the main history
