According to a report by Autoexpress, a senior Toyota official has revealed that poor sales of the GT 86 sports car meant that additional variants, such as the much-hyped convertible and a possible performance version, are likely to be ruled out.

Speaking with Auto Express, Toyota’s European R&D boss Gerald Killmann said the GT 86 was behind sales targets in all major markets, meaning the American-market Scion FR-S as well, and that this has created doubts towards developing further variants of the car. Read more INSIDE.

Autocar pits three small sports cars against each other, including our beloved GT86. They ask: The new Alfa Romeo 4C has the right kind of credentials for a sports coupé, but can it really rival the indomitable and equivalently priced Porsche Cayman? Or how about the much cheaper, and less exotic, Toyota GT86?

Watch the video inside.

Recent testing of the Evasive Pikes Peak FR-S resulted in the fastest FR-S / BRZ time at Buttonwillow CW13. The car’s HKS Supercharger was de-tuned to 360whp for the run.   The driver was Robert Walker.

See the run on video inside.

This video is about the visionary Kazunori Yamauchi (Kaz) who, through creating Gran Turismo, caused a ripple in mainstream culture. Kaz sees a link between our enjoyment for cars and our evolution as humans. “The pleasure of hunting is… connected to driving, connected to racing …it is related to the male hunting instinct.”

This video is loaded with philosophical insights from people of diverse backgrounds who speak on their personal experiences. It also demonstrates how “race ready” Gran Turismo video gamers with no real world racing experience really are.

Skip to the 55:45 mark for the short BRZ sequence but also awe at the substance that the rest of this video has to offer.
