Check out Mr Totem & BLKCLD:
The Toyota GT86, the Subaru BRZ, and the Scion FRS--the tuning trifecta that helped define the meaning of ‘driving experience.” With famed Tetsuya Tada at the helm, and a Subaru Boxer engine under its bonnet, the 86 took off from Japan, splashed into the European and American Automotive markets, and ushered in a new era of young drivers and enthusiasts. Of all its accolades, the GT86 just lacked one thing...power babeh!
Join James Pumphrey as we explore the Toyota GT86, and answer the infamous automotive dilemma, “does making a faster car, mean making a better car?”

Id love to have this GT86! I drove in one as a passenger, on a race track, and honestly even if its slower then my BMW E30, it does not feel as slow as people make it seem to be. Its not a super fast car, but for an average driver like I am, it sure is not slow! In terms of acceleration, its comparable to BMW e46 328i, which isnt fast car, but then again its far from slow and boring. That being said, I would not mind extra 50-100 ponies in it either :).It is really stable car, predictable, seems its fun to drive, and imho it looks awesome! 10/10 would want one :D

M16 A4 which supra? The mk5? I meant like in the future not now. Eventually a cars lifetime in the market depletes and calls for a new version to come out. Just like the Fairlady Z the 370z has been out for a while and they came out with a new concept to replace it. Why can’t hey do that by improving the supra?
M16 A4

To me, the fact that the 86 has "less power" than other contemporary sports cars, and is also N/A, just makes it all the more similar to the 86 of old. People criticized that car too for being old and slow, but what a legend and unique driving experience it is and turned out to be.

“does making a faster car, mean making a better car?” Tesla fan gonna say yes, full option tick Tesla S Plaid costing 175k beating Ferrari F8 Tributo costing 300k senseless ? yes it's better definitely can't imagine if Tesla can keep their promise about Tesla Roadster and deliver a working production one ready for sell and have a same performance as claimed. No shit, it gonna decimate both 2000hp stock Skyline GT-R R34 and Supra RZ A80 forever

I get that one might confuse it for the original, but why does everyone call it the GT86? That's what it's called in Europe only. The Jamaican version kept the concept's name (FT86, search me why), and it's known simply as the 86 in the rest of the world. If you want to distinguish it from the original, use the chassis code: ZN6. That's a catchall for the Toyota and Scion versions, as well as the BRZ.

I'm driving the FRS and more power wouldn't make me consider switching to a newer version. Better sound insulation would though. It's terribly loud above 120 km/h. A GT car shouldn't be this tiring to drive for hours on a highway. You can't even listen to music over the road noise.

Flat boxer engine is notoriously known for reliability issue, and Subaru's flat 4 boxer is no different. If you don't keep the engine with sufficient oil, the crank shaft's bearing can be worn out faster than you think. I ain't buying the 86 any time soon 🤣

I refuse to acknowledge the idea that the GT 86 has ANYTHING to do with the old school AE86. Not because of the boxer engine or anything like that, but because it ENTIRELY missed what made the AE86 as great as it IS. The AE86 was cheap, fun, chuckable. but above all that, it was a car that you could daily, there was room for the kids, for the shopping. For all the fun and raciness of the AE86 it was also a car you could daily. and I'm sorry but you can not functionally daily a GT86 if you have a family. So I'm sorry, but Toyota and Subaru missed the mark on it as far as I'm concerned. It's an ok sports car, it's an ok car, but it's far from cheap or affordable, or anything that the old AE86 was. So I can not in good faith consider this car to be anything even remotely in terms of lineage to the AE86.

The head engineer has to say those things because he’s the PR guy, but in reality, a turbocharged BRZ would be bad for Toyota’s version, as it probably won’t be an “STI.” A BRZ STI would also compete with the WRX STI, which is not something a manufacturer wants to do. It would also compete with the GR Supra. Think of how the Civic Si always had to be less powerful than the Integra/RSX. The car was never designed to be that much of a beast, either, so the balance thing holds some truth. Think of the federal Lotus Elise. These were meant to be cheap little cars you could toss around like a Miata. I don’t know what it is (tariffs?) but whenever Japan releases anything with power, there’s a huge premium on MSRP.
