Toyota Says New 86 Is Coming
Toyota finally confirms that a new 86 is on the way. Given how it was an instant hit the first time it came to the auto market, it only makes sense that a second generation follows. A lot of fans and enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for the next generation of the 86 and it seems that their wish has been granted.
The confirmation of the second generation of the 86 is one that a lot of people have anxiously anticipated. According to a report from Road and Track, the next generation of the 86 is now actually being developed. "The GT86 will carry on. The car serves a big purpose. We are not getting out of that business. Sporty cars go through their phases. It's our intention to continue with the car," said Karl Schlicht, head of Toyota Europe.
While it has been confirmed that a new 86 is coming, most of the details about its second generation are still under wraps as noted by Left Lane News. In a statement, Schlicht mentioned that the project is still at the embryonic stage of development and there is still no chief engineer for the project. Schlicht also added that the development of the 86 will likely be in cooperation with Subaru. The latter was Toyota's partner in the development of the first generation 86.
When Will It Be Introduced?
It appears that fans and enthusiasts do not have to wait very long. Schlicht stated that the next generation of the 86 will be introduced before the year 2018 ends or in the beginning of 2019. The U.S. market however, will have to wait a little longer as the next generation of 86 will probably come in 2020. The good news is that when it finally arrives in the North American shores, it will not be alone as the new Supra will be tagging along with it.
