2015 Toyota 86 Review

It's hard to believe it's been three years since the Toyota 86 first launched in Australia with a sub-$30k price tag and the promise of proper rear-wheel-drive dynamics. Initially a consistent top-seller in the local sports car bracket, that same success has not been matched globally. And so far this year, sales are actually down more than 30 per cent...

‘Sports’ car sales plummet in October

Sales of dedicated sports cars fell off a cliff last month, with industry database VFACTS recording a 23.6 per cent drop over the same month in 2014. This statistic is a significant outlier, given sports car sales as a whole are down by a comparatively modest 3.8 per cent for the year so far. Naturally, the concept of a ‘sports car’ is a slippery one...

This once sporting company who built automotive icons such as the Toyota Supra and AE86 Corolla have spent most of the last decade building cars which primary focus has been economy and reliability and marketing them to a much older age demographic then almost any other manufacturer...

2013 Toyota 86 Review

In 2012, Toyota released arguably one of the most important cars of the year. The Toyota 86 is a back-to-basics sports car with a 2.0lt 4 cylinder engine producing a reasonable 147kw and achieves the sprint to 100 in 7.6 seconds for the manual and 8.2 seconds for the automatic...

2013 Toyota 86 Review

Such a mixed bag of emotions come with owning a Toyota 86, well for me at least. I gave up a very capable and happiness inducing Mk6 VW Golf GTI to pursue the Japanese sports car. Buying the 86 was a frustrating experience, the dealership (South Melbourne Toyota) was horrible to deal with but I wanted this car and I was determined to have it in my driveway...

2014 Toyota 86 GTS Review

I love the seating and steering position and the road view is very good. Additionally, the interior is finished of quite well and athletically is sporty, modern and functional...
