For sports car fans and Toyota purists, the arrival of the GT86 in 2011 was a welcome relief. With no MR2, Celica or Supra in the range to satisfy their cravings for the past few years, the pedigree of the GT86 was exactly what they had been waiting so long for. Return of pure driving joyInspired by Toyota’s sporting icons of the past – such as the 2000GT and AE86 – a team of passionate designers and engineers with a single-minded aim to deliver the pure joy of driving, brought the classic sports car experience to a new generation with the GT86. Recalling the well-proven attributes for sports car success, the front engine and rear-wheel drive configuration, the GT86’s 2-litre horizontally-opposed engine and curvaceous styling brought the best from the driver-focused Toyotas of the past into the modern day. With a high-revving rear-located petrol engine driving the rear wheels, a low centre of gravity and a lightweight body, the GT86 offered drivers great handling and electrifying reactions – exactly what the engineers had promised. As a design treat, iconic 86 badges adorn the GT86’s steering wheel and even the exhaust tip measures a perfect 86mm in reference to the engines 86mm bore and stroke specification and the 86’s development tag. Like many iconic Toyotas that have gone before it, the GT86 has garnered huge plaudits the world over for its unbridled driving experience and return to simple, affordable motoring fun. Thanks to its proven dynamics the GT86 has enjoyed success in many forms of motorsport around the world. Most notably in 2015, the GT86 CS-R3 rally car was made available for cost-effective entry into the thrills of competitive rallying, including the World Rally Championship. Toyota’s sports car futureAround the time of the GT86’s launch, Toyota’s president Akio Toyoda set out his vision for the company’s immediate future, saying: ‘We continue to make better cars’ and ‘if it’s not fun to drive, it’s not a car.’ So with renewed purpose at the heart of the company and the results of this driver-focused mindset obvious for all to see in the GT86, what could the future hold for cars that invoke Toyota’s rich past?

For many people, the idea of going back to the mid ‘90s is a nightmare of big pants, cellphones the size of burritos, and a never-ending invasion of AOL CDs. The one great exception is likely the old ‘90s Toyota lineup, which boasted a family of three interesting sports cars. Now there’s hints that this best part of the ‘90s may be coming back.That original lineup included the Supra, Celica, and the mid-engined pocket rocket MR2. Currently, we have the delightful GT86 filling the middle-child role the Celica once held, we have a new BMW-co-developed Supra on the way, which leaves a hole for a new, likely mid-engined successor to the MR2.Exclusive: Here's The Best Look Yet At The New Toyota SupraThe new Toyota Supra. Not since the C7 Chevrolet Corvette has there been a sports car enthusiasts…Read more Toyota engineer and Gazoo Racing chief Tetsuya Tada told Evo that “the three brothers” would be in production together “as soon as possible.” AdvertisementThis seems to be a confirmation that a new MR2 is in the works, and Evo speculates that Toyota will seek to incorporate hybrid technology developed for their LMP1 racecars, and that the MR2 will likely retain its traditional mid-engine design.Currently, Toyota has no mid-engine platform (well, technically, the GT86 is front-mid, and I think the Hiace vans may be, too) so I’ll be curious to see how that will eventually pan out.We’ve been stung before by rumors of beloved sports cars coming back, so I’m going to remain a bit wary, but hopeful. A good, affordable mid-engined car is sorely needed in the market today, and would provide some good competition to the Miata/Fiat 124. I can’t wait to see the tiny, tortured trunks a reborn MR2 (MR3?) may end up having.

The car formerly known as the Scion FR-S is now the Toyota 86 and is tasked with keeping the brand’s sports-car flame burning in this crossover-crazed world. The 2.0-liter flat-four makes 205 hp when paired to the smooth-shifting six-speed manual. With the optional six-speed automatic, however, power drops to 200 hp—but we doubt you’ll be able to tell. Rear-wheel drive and a balanced chassis provide endless fun on twisty roads. When cruising around town, the racy styling will turn heads. Jump to Instrumented Test – 2017 Toyota 86 Manual

Although the FR-S nameplate is dead, euthanized by Toyota along with the whole Scion brand, the vehicle lives on as the 2017 Toyota 86—the same moniker the car has always carried in several markets outside of the United States. Further muddying its identity, the 86’s name change coincides with a mid-cycle refresh it shares with its mechanical twin, the 2017 Subaru BRZ. As with the Subaru, a host of subtle updates to the Toyota bring a touch more performance but do little to alter its driving soul.
