Toyota GT86 drivers got their heads together recently to organise the UK’s first national gathering for owners and fans of our award-winning rear-wheel drive sportscar.

Held in a central location in Walsall, West Midlands, owners came from far and wide to attend – one in particular from the Netherlands, while another pair drove 275 miles from Glasgow. The early start was no doubt a shock to the system for many used to enjoying a lie-in on a Saturday morning, but fuelled with coffee and enthusiasm the miles were despatched with relative ease. Many travelling in the same direction organised to meet at motorway service stations along the way, which usually led to the dramatic sight of a convoy of GT86s playing ‘follow the leader’ and ‘leapfrog’ to the destination.

There is apparent strife between Toyota and Subaru on the viability and desire for a convertible version of the 86 twins. The rhetoric battle is heating up between the two companies as they have each made opposing public statements on the potential for an 86 convertible model.

In short, Toyota says yes, we want it because the 86 is already designed for it, while Subaru says no because it would require a complete redesign of the car’s architecture.
