Makklo Thank you for sharing

MKV Yeah I won't mind something smaller, RWD that still can perform well. Nissan talked about this years ago and soon after released a concept, the iDX....

Korben But the point here is that the 86 wont be the low end model anymore if Toyota's plans for 3 new sports cars is indeed true.

MKV Disagree.

86 was always an entry level sport car that met basic needs and always will. From the start that was the intention so much it was engineered to be modified and personalized.

O'Conner Well the new Supra is probably the reason why we haven't seen Toyota make any significant changes to the 86 over the past few years. Though I find it a bit surprising that they want to place something below it. What can they really deliver on something with <200hp.

MKV Acura did have a concept for something that rivals the Alfa 4C. If released it could help to give Acura the spotlight they need. The new NSX did it but didn't last long.

SupraDupra It's been more than a decade since we last saw the S2000, so I think it would be too much of an investment to bother reintroducing it now. Especially with electric models just on the horizon, we'll probably see that gap filled with a performance/sports EV.

Korben I really like this design and there is no denying that a whole has been left by the S2000. I'm a little surprised that Honda isn't considering revamping it with some kind of electrification. Perhaps its a legacy that they think is best left alone.

MKV I like that this rendering included a targa top because although the original 86 never had it and neither does the new one, the new MX-5 has it and gets great feedback.
Toyota will need it to appeal to a wider demographic.

O'Conner That's a great looking rendering, and I hope that something similar ends of being a part of their new lineup. To be honest they could probably get away with simply updating the 86, because I feel like its been heavily underutilized. It would be such a better vehicle with some additional power.
