I get the impression only skinny Asian girls are allowed to get near the car, i think it's a marketing ploy. I think it works.

I was shocked when I saw it, great price from Toyota. I still can't be convinced about it just yet. It still seems like a step backward to replace my WRX with an 86. Besides next year Hyundai are bring in their Coupe with a 200kW turbo-4 or 260kW V6 which will be in the same price range.

this of course is the first offering... when the turbo/sti versions come out, id expect them to be around the 50k mark, still cheaper than a 370z etc...

would be cool to see toyota offer a GT4 version and go rallying again

Thoughts from reviews and videos, I have not driven an 86 but have driven wrx
Different style of car
WRX good to great power (depending on what has been done) and when on boost lots of grip good chassis
86 small power but NA smooth delivery little grip but exceptionally well balanced chassis

a good driver will get alot out of a 86 as it has the chassis for them to play with on the limit and have FUN

You have an interesting choice but a fun position to be in.

I am very keen to have a drive of the 86

I'm keen to see one of these in person. I'm looking to replace my 370z with something a bit bigger, just don't know what. I may wait for a turbo version...

My cousin works for Toyota Finance, he's got 2 red ones sitting in the carpark, he reckons they look the goods.
