Toyota 86 Reviews
As a company famous for its pragmatic approach to building solid, sensible cars for all people, Toyota has occasionally let its hair down – and the 86, launched in 2012, is a perfect example of the staid company's less conservative side.
Designed in partnership with fellow Japanese company Fuji Heavy Industries (who supplied the engine and driveline) and also sold as a Subaru BRZ, the 86 is unashamedly a car for the enthusiast on a budget.
Spurred on by Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda (who declared himself a development driver!), the lithe, light, rear-drive 86 is a purist's dream – and enjoys legendary Toyota reliability to boot.
