Press Release:




World Premiere of the All-new Toyota GR 86

5 April 2021

  • ●  New coupe faithful to the fun-to-drive characteristics of its GT86 predecessor

  • ●  Light weight and low centre of gravity secure agile handling

  • ●  Third model in Toyota’s line-up of global GR sports cars, joining GR Supra and GR Yaris

  • ●  New 2.4-litre horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine

    The all-new Toyota GR 86 made its world debut today in an online event hosted by Toyota Gazoo Racing and Subaru Corporation. Toyota’s newest sports car becomes the third model in its global GR portfolio, joining the widely acclaimed GR Supra and GR Yaris.

    GR 86 inherits the essential fun-to-drive characteristics of the original GT86, which was launched in 2012 and went on to amass more than 200,000 worldwide sales. It is expected to be the lightest four-seater coupe in its class, thanks to weight-saving initiatives such as using aluminium for the roof and body panels.

    The coupe is powered by a new, lightweight, horizontally opposed, four-cylinder engine. An increase in displacement to 2.4 litres brings a step-up in performance from the 2.0-litre unit in GT86.

    The car’s dimensions are almost identical to its predecessor, allowing new model to maintain a low centre of gravity for agile handling. Torsional rigidity has been increased by around 50 per cent to deliver even sharper handling and steering.

    GT86’s experience in motorsport competition has helped the development of functioning aerodynamic components for GR 86, such as the front air ducts and side rocker panels. These will help the new model achieve expected best-in-class handling and stability.

    The all-new GR 86 will be available in Europe; more details will be announced later this year.

Developing the unique driving feel of the GR 86 through friendly rivalry with Subaru

Toyota City, Japan―On April 5, 2021, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing (TGR) gave the new GR 86 its world debut in an online event held together with Subaru Corporation (Subaru). Following the GR Supra and GR Yaris, the new GR 86 is the third global model in TGR's GR series of sports cars. The new GR 86 is scheduled to launch in Japan in autumn 2021.

Toyota developed the original 86 with the goal of delivering the dreams and the joy of driving inherent in sports cars to its customers. Conceived as a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicle with intuitive handling and instinctive responsiveness, the 86 launched in 2012. Since then, the vehicles have been utilized as base models for a variety of participatory motorsports, including rallies, one-make races, gymkhana, and dirt trials, while others have been uniquely customized. A total of more than 200,000 86s have been sold worldwide, playing the role of reliable partners for their owners.

TGR's new GR 86 and Subaru's new BRZ were jointly developed. Yet, although the two vehicles share the same vehicle base, the two companies focused on imbuing their respective models with a distinct driving feel. While engaging in friendly rivalry with the BRZ development team, TGR sought to develop a vehicle that would provide happiness to 86 fans, and realize an evolution of the 86's unique driving sensations. As a result, the new GR 86 is specially designed for sports performance, and provides direct and satisfying driving performance of the highest order.

In September 2019, Toyota and Subaru entered into a new business and capital alliance, as part of which the two companies committed to jointly engage in making ever-better cars. The new GR 86/BRZ is not only a concrete example of this commitment, but also represents a new challenge for both companies, as they seek to subvert conventional ideas of cooperation in the automotive industry. Going forward, Toyota and Subaru intend to further ally their respective strengths, deepen their relationship, and so pursue the possibilities of making ever-better cars.

Key Features of the GR 86
  • Interior and exterior designs embrace responsive handling and functional beauty
  • Exterior
  • With fender tops that extend horizontally to the beltline, the GR 86 boasts a stance distinctive of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicles. Its low, horizontal underbody and narrow cabin rear combine to create a broad, low-center-of-gravity appearance.
  • The front of the vehicle features the GR-specific Functional MATRIX Grille, which fuses performance and emotionality.
  • The operating system―which includes the various switches and the horizontally-accented instrument panel―is optimally located to create a space that enables the driver can concentrate on driving.
  • The display features a 7-inch TFT screen. Its opening animation sequence is inspired by the piston movements of the GR 86's horizontally opposed engine, and fosters a sense of excitement even before the drive begins.

The evolutionary new 2.4L horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine retains the unique qualities of the 86
  • Sporting a lightweight, compact engine with a low center-of-gravity in line with previous iterations, the GR 86 increases its displacement size from 2.0 to 2.4L. The engine delivers superior driving performance as a consequence, achieving 0-100km/h acceleration in just 6.3 seconds―down from the 7.4 seconds of the outgoing model. Engine responsiveness has also been enhanced, providing smooth, stress-free sensations from low to high rpms.

Inheriting an extremely low center-of-gravity front-engine, rear-wheel-drive package, the new GR86 provides a step-change in agility
  • The dimensions of the new GR 86 are almost identical to the previous model. Limiting both the overall height and hip-point of the vehicle helps lower the center-of-gravity and enhance turning performance, and so delivering the agility required of an 86.
  • The use of aluminum for the roof panels results in a lower center-of-gravity, while aluminum fenders and updated front seats and mufflers contribute to reduced weight.
  • Body rigidity has been improved, with the goal of offering pleasurable handling in all speed ranges―from urban driving to the upper limits of performance. Torsional rigidity has been enhanced by approximately 50% over the previous model for greater steering stability.

Aerodynamic components are rooted in motorsports
  • The GR 86 features aerodynamic components seen on 86 models that participate in motorsports. These include air outlets, side sill spoilers, and other parts that improve steering responsiveness and stability.

A sports car that provides a secure and safe car life
  • The AT version of the GR 86 uses Subaru's EyeSight* Driver Assist Technology. This system of comprehensive safety technologies provides safety support during everyday driving; pre-collision safety technologies that help avoid or reduce collision impacts; and emergency rescue support and secondary collision avoidance support in the event of an accident.





GR 86 (US-Spec)


















Press Release US-Spec:


  • Track-tested, pro-driver approved, the all-new 2022 GR 86 earns a Gazoo Racing badge
  • Responsive and lightweight 2+2 sports coupe designed by enthusiasts, for enthusiasts
  • Increased rigidity, more power and torque, aerodynamic body elements, and new interior
  • 2.4L flat-four boxer engine hits peak torque at lower RPMs, giving the feel of more linear acceleration
  • Complimentary one-year membership to the National Auto Sport Association (NASA), featuring a High Performance Driving Event with expert instruction

PLANO, Texas (June 2, 2021) – The car that marked the revival of Toyota’s sportscar lineage will now give drivers even more of the agility, style and responsiveness they desire. For this round, the detail-obsessed Toyota Gazoo Racing team brings enhanced handling and exterior aerodynamics, increased power and an upgraded interior. These changes earn it a Gazoo Racing badge, joining Toyota’s ever-growing, global sportscar line as the all-new 2022 GR 86.

With its wide stance and low center of gravity, the 2+2 rear-wheel drive coupe’s handling changes come in the form of front- and rear-frame reinforcements that increase rigidity. Functional exterior air vents were also added to further support steering stability. Weight shaving details, such as aluminum roof panels and fenders, also kept it at a nimble curb weight of just over 2,800 lbs.

The 2.4L naturally aspirated, horizontally opposed four-cylinder boxer engine, brings the power upgrade – increasing from 205 to 228 hp and from 156 to 184 lb.-ft. of torque on the manual version. The power boost comes from tweaks like increased bore size, changes to the intake and exhaust systems, and optimization of the Toyota D-4S dual injection technology. Drivers will have the choice of a 6-speed manual (MT) or automatic transmission (AT).

Zero to 60 times have dropped from 7 to 6.1 seconds for the MT and from 8 to 6.6 seconds for the AT.

Available in two grades, GR 86 and GR 86 Premium, it will come in seven exterior color choices, including the aptly named Track bRED. The premium grade comes equipped with a rear duckbill spoiler, adding dynamic contours to the car’s sporty feel.

The cabin gets upgraded front seats with a deep bucket design and side bolsters that keep driver and passenger supported during serious cornering. GR 86 Premium grade seats are upholstered in Alcantara with leather accents. Leather-trimmed driver touchpoints and silver-colored accents also add a race-inspired touch to the cabin.

Additional interior upgrades include a three-mode digital display, offering different information layouts for Normal, Sport or Track driving modes. An 8-inch Multimedia Touchscreen with six speakers comes on the standard grade, while an eight-speaker system comes standard on the Premium grade, and available Connected Services, Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™ compatibility with NFC pairing, and a Sirius-XM® three-Month All Access trial brings drivers their tech fix.


Iconic Sportscar Design…Tweaked in the GR Garage

When the 86/Scion FR-S was introduced in 2012, Akio Toyoda’s aim was to re-capture the spirit of Toyota’s famed sports car from the 1980s and ‘90s. With a name in tribute to the mid-1980s AE86 known in Japan as the “hachi-roku” (meaning 8-6) and known in the U.S. as the Toyota Corolla GT-S, the 86/FR-S was developed to give sportscar purists an affordable, agile rear-drive sports coupe.

The new generation GR 86 takes cues from its “hachi-roku” forefather.

Its low overall height and hip point give it an athletic look. The fender tops extend horizontally to the beltline and give it a stance distinctive of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive sportscars. Its low, horizontal underbody and narrowed rear cabin combine to create a launch-ready appearance. Color choices include Track bRED, Trueno Blue, Neptune Blue, Halo White, Steel Grey, Pavement Grey and Raven Black

The move from a 2.0L to a 2.4L engine has increased displacement nearly 20%, from 1,998cc to 2,387cc. Thanks to that increase, GR 86 now has 228 hp and 184 lb.-ft. of peak torque, which it now hits at 3,700 rpm, the previous generation hit max torque at 6,600 rpm.

The result? The all-new GR 86 now delivers linear acceleration across a wider band of rpms, delivering a longer surge to drivers.

The front of the vehicle features a GR-specific Functional MATRIX “G Mesh” Grille, which fuses performance and expressiveness. Its angular LED headlights compliment the aerodynamic front aim dams and vents, with side sill spoilers to aid steering responsiveness and stability. And those vents? Well, we’ve placed ducts in the front bumper and wheel house, so air that’s induced while driving is distributed to the wheel house and inside bumper, reducing air stagnation.

Additional “Hachi-roku” inspired elements take the form of its Torsen® limited-slip rear differential and RWD platform. With easy-to-control stability from a sport-tuned independent MacPherson® strut front and double wishbone rear suspension.

Mountain-road-ready stopping power is delivered by 11.6- and 11.4-inch vented front and rear brakes, and corner-chewing grip coming from Michelin Primacy HP®  tires on 17-inch wheels on the GR 86, and Michelin Pilot Sport 4® tires aboard forged black 18-inch wheels on the Premium grade.


The Art & Science of “86-ness”

The magic of the classic AE-86 was in its famously responsive handling and throttle.

For the new GR 86, the design of the Boxer-4 allows for balanced maneuverability. The horizontal cylinders contribute to overall vehicle weight control and allow for ultra-low placement in the engine bay, giving the car a well-grounded confidence at a curb weight of just over 2,800 lbs.

The 2.4L engine’s bore and stroke dimensions have increased from 86 mm x 86 mm to 94 mm x 86 mm, and displacement is up from 1998cc to 2387cc. The engine retains the Toyota-innovated D-4S Dual Injection technology system that combines direct fuel injection and port-injection technologies, while the port injection and in-cylinder injection have been optimized. The direct-injection system provides a cooling effect in the cylinders, which allows the engine to use a high 12.5:1 compression ratio for maximum power. Meanwhile, the port fuel injectors come into play during light- and medium-load conditions to help maximize combustion efficiency.

It gives drivers an experience that only a naturally aspirated engine can deliver – one so scientifically refined, it brings drivers enough power to keep them engaged with a throttle that responds to their every whim.

The automatic and manual transmissions have also received the GR treatment.

The six-speed automatic transmission now employs adaptive controls that sense brake and accelerator operation, automatically shifting to the optimal gear so the driver can experience just the right amount of control. Torque capacity has also increased, as well as the number of clutch discs.

The manual transmission now uses low-viscosity oil and strut bearings that enhance clutch capacity and gear strength. These materials support the higher torque output of the 2.4L boxer engine. The essence of GR 86-ness is also captured through a redesigned, low catch manual gear box that delivers smooth, enjoyable control for manual transmission aficionados.

Add it all together and you get the agility, responsiveness and easy-to-drive feeling that equals “86-ness.”

Track Ready Performance, Everyday Comfort

GR 86’s driver-focused cockpit is designed to elevate the daily driving experience while also offering a simplicity that keeps drivers squarely focused on the road. Start up the GR 86, and you’re greeted by a 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) screen with an opening animation sequence inspired by the piston movements of the GR 86’s horizontally opposed engine.

The display has an all-new three-mode digital instrumentation with Normal, Sport and Track modes. While in Track mode, drivers get real-time readouts of gear position, engine speed, water temperature and oil temperature.

The horizontally configured instrument panel now has LCD toggle displays with silver trimmed dials that give the cabin a modern, race-inspired feel. A leather-trimmed steering wheel (AT only: with paddle shifters) and leather-wrapped parking brake handle and gear shift boot also add refinement.

Standard sport front bucket seats with side bolsters firmly hold drivers in place around each corner, with upgraded leather trimmed sport seating and aluminum pedals on the Premium model. The GR 86 also brings everyday usability, with 2+2 seating that offers the versatility of fold down rear seats.


Tunes, Tech, and Safety

Toyota GR 86 comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen display and six-speaker audio system, with eight speakers on the Premium model. It includes Bluetooth® for hands-free phone capability, a SiriusXM® three-month All Access trial, wired Apple CarPlay® & Android Auto™ compatibility, two USB ports and one auxiliary port, and trial access to a suite of available connected services (with additional subscription).

GR 86 features Toyota’s Smart Key System (on both doors) with Push Button Start and adds an alarm to the anti-theft system. It lights the night with Standard LED headlights and available adaptive front lighting on the Premium grade.  

All grades of the GR 86 come with Toyota’s Star Safety System™, which includes Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist (BA). It also includes Smart Stop Technology® (SST), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Track Mode and Hill Start Assist Control (HAC). Additional safety features include LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) with lower anchors on outboard rear seats and tether anchors on all rear seats and a Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS). Seven airbags are standard on all models, with the addition of a driver’s knee airbag.

The Automatic Transmission version comes with active safety standard that includes Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Lane Departure Warning, Sway Warning, Lead Vehicle Start Alert, Cruise Control and High Beam Assist.

Complimentary 1-year NASA Membership

Every 2022 GR 86 comes with a complimentary one-year membership to the National Auto Sport Association (NASA). As part of this membership, GR 86 owners will enjoy a host of benefits, including one free High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) and discounted admission to NASA-sanctioned events. 

Maintenance Included & Limited Warranty

ToyotaCare is included on all 2022 GR 86 models, a no-cost plan covering normal factory-scheduled maintenance and 24-hour roadside assistance for two years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Toyota’s 36-month/36,000 mile basic new-vehicle warranty applies to all components other than normal wear and maintenance items. Additional 60-month warranties cover the powertrain for 60,000 miles and corrosion with no mileage limitation.

E menomale che dovevano differenziarla molto dalla BRZ 🤡 evidentemente quel rumor era semplicemente un rumor.

Bella, va beh mi piaceva già la Subaru BRZ quindi anche la variante Toyota non mi dispiace. Forse in rosso non risalta molto.

  • Cole_90 changed the title to Toyota GR 86 2022

Belloccia, la vedo più centrata rispetto alla precedente. 


Comunque è sempre un piacere vedere case "generaliste" che si buttano ancora su questo genere di auto ❤️ nel mio mondo alternativo, Ford avrebbe presentato una vera erede coupè di Puma, non quel bacarozzo..

BRZ e GR86 (prima GT86) mi sono sempre piaciute per la loro semplicità e purezza sportiva. 

Nettamente meglio queste rispetto alla Supra che ha fatto un uso eccessivo di botulino.

Era ovvio che cambiassero solo la forma delle prese d'aria 😅 con quello che "costano" le omologazioni... comunque in rosso si presenta bene, la promuovo... vediamo se la filiale italiana nonostante le vendite risicate della precedente 😬 la venderà da noi...

      Era dal 2007 che non si vedeva un Land Cruiser tutto nuovo e oggi finalmente debutta la Serie 300, ovvero nuova generazione del più grande dei LC.
      Nuova serie, nuova anche la piattaforma su cui nasce, e cioé l'ormai nota TNGA-F; inoltre come già anticipato in S&A, LC dice addio ai motori V8, adottando unicamente dei V6, un benzina 3.5 Twin-Turbo da 415 cv ed un diesel 3.3 Twin-Turbo da 309 cv, ambedue abbinati ad un automatico a 10 rapporti.
      Sia fuori che dentro troviamo un'impostazione molto simile a quella già conosciuta, con frontale e plancia (con tablet da 12.3'') imponenti, proprio come piace ai principali mercati di riferimento (Emirati Arabi e Russia).
      L'angolo di attacco è di 32 gradi, quello di partenza arriva sino ai 26,5 a seconda delle versioni; disponibili anche le sospensioni adattive, l'E-KDSS (electronically controlled kinetic dynamic suspension stabilization), ed un selettore di guida su sterrato (Multi-Terrain Select) totalmente rivisto ed aggiornato con l'aggiunta del nuovo Multi-Terrain Monitor che aggiunge una telecamera nel sottoscocca. 
      Ovviamente Toyota offre una serie di ADAS precedentemente non disponibili sulla vecchia serie 200.
      Infine, come avrete notato, nuovo è anche l'allestimento GR Sport, un Land Cruiser nudo e crudo votato allo sterrato, con parti in plastica grezza.
