Proportions, size, and overall design very similar to the current car.
The biggest visual updates are the front and rear ends.
“GR” from Gazoo Racing, will replace “GT” in the car’s name.
The Toyota 86, also known as the Scion FR-S, FT86, GT86, and Subaru BRZ, is expected to return for the 2022 model as a new car. Just how new is difficult to make out based on this very brief video.
The RWD feather-weight sports Toyota 86 was introduced in early 2012 and quickly gained a massive following despite one rather notable shortcoming. According to many, the naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine simply has never produced enough power. Even so, it is a favorite among true driving enthusiasts.

This very brief spy-video, shared by kystify on Instagram, and Matt Maran Motoring, shows what is undoubtedly a Toyota 86 in complete camouflage. The brief few seconds we see it show us that the front end is very different from the current car and, in some respects, reminds us of the Nissan 370Z. The greenhouse looks nearly identical to the car you can buy today however the rear shows signs of some reworking of the trunk lid with integrated spoiler and bumper.
The overall dimensions lead everyone to believe that the new twins will ride on an evolved or updated version of the current platform instead of moving over to Toyota’s TNGA global structure as initially thought.
Reports of Toyota and Subaru working on many joints projects are almost common. Earlier this year, Toyota rounded up its controlling stake in Subaru up to 20% which is good news for vehicles like the GR86. About the name, Gazoo Racing is involved in the new 86’s development so, like the GR Supra, the moniker is earned.
According to many, including Motor1, power might come from a naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine which would generate only a mild output increase to 217 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque.
The new Toyota GR86 is expected to break cover next spring for the 2022 model year.
