It’s no exaggeration to say the 86, Australia’s top-selling sports car, has single-handedly succeeded in injecting some sparkle into Toyota’s lacklustre line-up.
And, according to a source close to Toyota, there’s plenty more where that came from.
That’s right folks, the 86 family is about to grow -- and in a big way. When the 86 landed in showrooms last year, we were told of other iterations including a soft-top, a sedan and a shooting brake (sports wagon). Chief engineer Tetsuya Tada even mentioned as much in his blog.
Well, although the 86 convertible concept has apparently stalled, our insider now tells us the green light has been given for an 86-based sedan.
