A render of a new generation of Toyota 86 sports coupe has appeared on the web. According to the creator of this computer visualization, he used photos from testing prototypes of the new product. The coupe may debut next year.

Toyota will breathe new life into its entry-level sports car – the news broke in February 2019, when the Japanese automaker confirmed that the second-generation Toyota 86 coupe will be unveiled.

However, following this announcement, Toyota has been reluctant to disclose details about the 86, and there hasn’t been a case of a prototype being seen in trials until last month. For a short time (actually only a few seconds), a Toyota 86 prototype in camouflage uniforms was first spotted on a trip to Michigan, USA.

the artists decided to imagine what a new generation of Japanese sports car could be – the render was compiled from the available spy photos, giving us an idea of ​​what the second generation Toyota 86 might look like.

The main element we noticed here were the headlights, which are reminiscent of similar ones that appeared on the GRMN Sports FR Concept Platinum back in 2013.

However, the lower part is different, has a larger false radiator grille than the old concept.

Speaking about the start of mass production of the new car, our sources say that the next version of the rear-wheel drive sports car will be called the GR 86, which reflects the participation of the Toyota Gazoo Racing sports division in its development. It will also allow the 86 to match other Toyota sports cars such as the GR Supra and GR Yaris. We also know that the next GR 86 (and Subaru BRZ) will receive a slight increase in power and its engine will remain naturally aspirated.

The upcoming GR 86 will debut next July as new for the 2022 model year.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the updated Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ will become more technological. These two vehicles are based on a single platform. An update is coming soon.
