Toyota is 25mm longer (font bumper) and 10mm lower (suspension settings), and a lot more good looking!

But given the latest rumors about a possible delay I was expecting some power difference to be honest...

Either way, it should improve on the GT86 amazing formula... Hope it sells well to buy a used one to pair with a BEV.

not sure GR86 looks better. the fender vent looks bad on both. colors red and blue make the car no favour. i am sure black will make both look as good.

I’m just so happy there is a second generation. A few a years ago, I was part of a skunkworks enthusiast meet I helped host for Tada-San in Miami 6 years ago. It was so quiet, Toyota only knew at the last minute. There the current FR-S/BRZ enthusiasts were asked what they wanted to see in a possible second gen. Mind you, the car wasn’t green lighted yet.

I tire off all the internet bitching when a new coupe comes out. It’s so hard to get them approved. The collab makes it possible. It has more power etc every one asked for. If you what 300hp, to buy a Supra!!! It took a great deal to get these cars approved!

Pics of the event

I took TADA San for bbq that night I think. Next to his is Kishi-San who was also a big past of development and next to me is Moto-Miwa, a legend in the AE86/FRS and JDM space.

I know it’s a bit problematic due to the boxer engine design, but... Didn’t anyone asked for easier spark plug replacement? 🤣
I had so much fun driving a GT86 some years ago, it’s such an incredible car...

Oh boy... If it was hard to do the sensible and financially choice and wait for a BEV with the GT86/3IS 300h on sale...
Really hope this GR86 doesn’t look good in real life as it looks in this photos/videos... Otherwise... I’m screwed... 🤣🤣🤣

You know that if they made the car with EE20 diesel engine it would fit the name, because the diesel has a bad for an oil burner 1:1 ratio of bore/ stroke of both 86mm?

Maybe a GR MN version?

It looks to have wider black part on the front bumper... Just like the rumored Supra GRMN:

The crazy GR Yaris also have a wider black part on the front bumper:

Perhaps it’s the GRMN 86 on the pictures and under that blue cover.

I’m guessing some brembo brakes, better suspension, sportier seats, Alcântara steering wheel and new exhaust system... around the same power output.

Some have pointed out that the roofline aren't the same. Whatever is under the blue cover has more of an angular slope like the old 07 FT-HS concept.
