Next Toyota 86 To Be More Fun Than Supra According to Toyota

Toyota wants the new 86 to be more fun than the Supra.

There’s been a lot of talk about the next-generation Toyota 86. One thing’s for sure, Toyota has no plans on letting it go. The team responsible for bringing the second coming of the Toyota 86 to life is apparently aiming to make the new generation better than the recently introduced Toyota Supra.

That’s at least what the 86’s chief engineer Tetsuya Tada told Australian publication WhichCar. Tada, if you recall, was also responsible for designing the new Supra. Although very few details are confirmed about the upcoming 86, rumors have been going around that it will use the 2.4-litre four-cylinder developed by Subaru for the Ascent and Outback. Whether that engine will be turbocharged like it is in both Subaru crossovers remains to be seen.

A 260-horsepower Toyota 86 would be something. On the other hand, Toyota may want to keep that engine for a more affordable Supra down the road. The 2.4-litre could then be used sans turbocharger for the 86.

That means it would likely make somewhere around 220 horsepower which would be an upgrade over the current Toyota 86’s 200 horsepower.

So many possibilities.
