Toyota 86 GR teased

Toyota may be readying a new version of the 86, developed in part with Gazoo Racing. A teaser video was posted up to the Twitter account of Toyota's branch in Spain, but it has since been taken down. Toyota launched an 86 GRMN a few years ago, but only a 100 units were built specifically for the Japanese market.

I'm doubtful that Toyota has any interest in updating the 86 until we get a confirmation of another new sports coupe. There are whispers that the MR2 could return as well, but that could be expensive to R&D if it retains the mid engine layout.

It still amazes me that till this day they haven't used the FA20T engine in the subaru legacy, its exactly what we need for baseline power, everywhere you look owners are demanding another 50-75

If Toyota hasn't updated the 86 with more power yet, I have a looming suspicion that its probably not planned at all. With so many publications and owners suggesting more power for the model, maybe we'll see something in the next gen.

It either a incremental increase in power and overall performance for an everyday coupe like it currently is, or they increase power and output, or move it to a slightly smaller and more nimble layout to better differentiate it from the Supra and work to master 2 strengths in popular segments.
