GT86, just the first of three sports cars being planned by Toyota

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 10, 2012

The Toyota GT86, also known as Scion FR-S, is just the first of three sports cars being planned by the automaker, according to chief engineer Tetsuya Tada. This news is very exciting since the GT86 has already earned a reputation for itself of being the best new sports car in a generation.

Tada told Top Gear in the Philippines that two more cars are coming and that the FR-S will take the middle slot in the brand’s new sports car lineup. He said that the first is more mass-market and more affordable than the 86 and that the third is even more upmarket than the 86.

There had been rumors that the GT86/FR-S will be priced at about $20,000. It’s believed that the climbing value of the Japanese yen caused the higher eventual cost. But it’s likely that an even more budget-oriented sports car will arrive.

Tada declined to say if the higher performance model would be a Supra successor. But from previous comments, it’s believed that the next-gen halo sports car for the brand will not be a hybrid.
