Minor tweaks have only reinforced the GT 86’s title as one of the finest handling rear-wheel drive sports cars on the market. However, since the GT 86 was launched, the finely balanced Mazda MX-5 has come in and undercut the otherwise excellent Toyota – offering the same engaging handling for a fraction of the cost.
The car formerly known as the Scion FR-S is now the Toyota GT86 and is tasked with keeping the brand’s sports-car flame burning in this crossover-crazed world. The 2.0-liter flat-four makes 205 hp when paired to the smooth-shifting six-speed manual. With the optional six-speed automatic, however, power drops to 200 hp—but we doubt you’ll be able to tell. Rear-wheel drive and a balanced chassis provide endless fun on twisty roads. When cruising around town, the racy styling will turn heads.
