Holden could add a Toyota 86 fighter to its armory if General Motors North America boss Mark Reuss succeeds in his ambition to bring a budget-buy rear-wheel drive Chevrolet coupe to market.
While not confirmed for production, the idea was previewed by the 2012’s Code 130R concept car (pictured) and is on the wishlist of the former Holden boss.
The 86 – which is sold as the Scion FR-S in the US - and its almost identical twin, the Subaru BRZ, swept all before them in 2012, with demand exceeding supply and car of the year awards piling up in response to their affordable rear-drive oversteer antics.
“I love it,” said Reuss, an enthusiastic driver. “It’s on the list. It would be a great entry for us.
“I don’t know if they (Toyota) are making any money but it is a very attractive car.” is the number one site in the world for Auto Show photos.
