The number 86 is frequently to find, even more in the interior after the facelift in 2016 (pictures below). Even the tailpipe can be easily expansed to 86 millimeters in diameter. The only question is how they managed to dimension also bore and stroke the same way, because the four-cylinder Boxer originates from Subaru.
After all, the result of this collaboration is an interesting competitor for the Peugeot RCZ and the Audi TT. For the purchase price there is a lot of driving pleasure. The suspension and particularly the steering are rated well, but the engine is as one of the last naturally aspirated engines said to slightly lack of torque at less than 3000 - 4000 rpm.
The car appears not to be very aggressive in race trim. That applies for the engine sound, too, despite an extra line from the engine compartment to the interior. A lot of upgrading is possible, for example, for just a little less than 10,000 euros, the brake system. The accessories industry has targeted the GT 86. As first small tuning measure is recommended to maintain the full acceleration by the choice of manual transmission.
No, Toyota does not offer engine tuning. For the model of 2017 they offer 3.7 kW (5 hp) and a few Nm more. Overall, the car is recommendable. The coming facelift could improve the haptics and make the rear seats reachable a little easier and foldable. The luggage compartment itself is in fact large enough for a sports car. 03/16
