The 86 is designed to bring back the sheer exhilaration of sports car driving. It has been developed by and for people with a genuine passion for sports cars. Called the 86 partly in tribute to its predecessor, the AE86, and partly to signify its 86mm x 86mm bore and stroke. The 86 has an ultra-low stance. It's modern, streamlined shape features timeless aspects of the 2000GT.
At the front, the flat forward sloping bonnet signals the presence of the horizontally-opposed Boxer engine beneath, while at the rear, the raised rear diffuser aids aerodynamic performance and agility.
The 86 is a rear wheel drive sports car powered by the world's first horizontally opposed D-4S engine. This combines 'boxer' engine technology (first seen in Toyota's Publica Sports in 1962) with our cutting edge D-4S direct and port injection technology.
The 2.0 litre, normally aspirated D-4S engine has separate twin injectors for both direct and port injection and a high compression ratio of 12.5:1. It delivers 147kW of power and generates plenty of torque over a wide range of engine speeds. A combination of lightweight body and superb aerodynamics ensures that every ounce of power is put to very good use.
The 86 is available with a six-speed manual transmission or an advanced sports shift six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. It's equipped with a specially designed sports steering wheel, sports seats and sports pedals.
