Next Gen Gt 86 confirmed!

Looks like we might be getting the 2nd generation of the GT 86 in 2018-2019.
There is a possibility of collaboration with Subaru again.

Expected does not mean confirmed! No point getting all excited till an official news release comes via Toyota or Subaru.

The killjoy in me has spoken.

PS.. appreciate you linking the article anyway!

Those are all quotes from an article back in 2014. They get rehashed every year about now.

I don't want a new generation to come out yet. I'm still paying off the one I bought. Everyone can have new ones in about 4 years, when I can afford to get one too.

This makes a lot of sense given the content. The statement quoted below raised red flags when I read it - it seems awfully late in the game at this point to be making very fundamental design and specification decisions and selecting a chief engineer if the car is to be released as a MY 2019:

Quote:
“The GT86 is at the stage where it’s being decided on the next one,” Toyota Europe boss Karl Schlicht revealed. “Then a chief engineer will be assigned and away we go.”

The RX-9 was "confirmed" also then, until it was killed a couple days ago.

Correct. Don't believe all these articles. The re-fresh model has not been introduced yet in UK and they'll have to wait for Spring 2017!

I'd suggest you find a dictionary and learn what the word confirmed means.

Then delete your account.

I can not find the original motoring.au article that this is extracted from verbatim but did find a 2014 Dutch site that has the basic quotes. The translation is a bit off but the similarities show that this is the same "interview" being "quoted" now.




The Toyota 86 is not a one-off project. Toyota's successor already in the planning, which comes as the current model has gone through its life cycle. That means we have a year or three, four can expect the new GT86. 2017 or 2018 so. The European Vice President of Toyota Europe, Karl Schlicht, has at Motoring.com.au said that Toyota will not again lose its flavor, as 10 years ago when the Celica disappeared never to return. "That's brand image has not helped. We want to have funauto in the range, "said Schlicht. Or the successor to the GT86 will come again in collaboration with Subaru achieved is uncertain. Toyota is now taking the lion's share of the joint production of the GT86 and BRZ itself and calls the business case "difficult" for cars, so for Subaru will be a successor to the BRZ probably not get out. Moreover, now Toyota is working with BMW on a sports car, but that is very different kind of car than the GT86

I know we like to beat a dead horse, but shouldn't it already be decomposed after 3 years?! O_o
