Toyota 86 Shooting Brake concept revealed

A radical Toyota sports car that was born in Australia could be heading to the world.

The 86 Shooting Brake was conceived in Melbourne, built in Japan, and has already triggered massive interest in Europe.

It’s an extension of the 86 sports car that is already a global best seller and has the personal backing of the car’s chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada.

Toyota has previously tried to spin the 86 into a convertible, even building a concept car for motor show displays, but Tada believes there is more potential in the Shooting Brake.

Asked directly if it could be headed for full-scale production he is enthusiastic.

“Yes. Definitely not no,” Tada tells News Limited.

“Yes, there is more potential than the convertible.”

The car was unveiled today (Friday) in Canberra ahead of the third annual Toyota 86 Festival in the national capital.

The Shooting Brake project began in November 2014 when Tada was first shown a clay model of the car which had been developed by Toyota Australia’s Product Design team.

It was fast-tracked in Japan and the display car in Australia this week is a fully-driveable prototype.

The car is a four-door with an extended 86 roofline that creates a hatchback-style boot.

The man behind the project, Toyota Australia’s chief designer Nic Hogios, says there was a lot of discussion on the original idea before his team settled on only making minor changes to the 86’s rear quarter and roof.

“Like kids in a lolly shop, we thought about re-styling more of the car. However, like good parents saying no to too many sweets, we made the conscious decision to keep as much of the original 86 as possible,” he says.

That's a big negative. Looks like a cross between a Honda CR-Z and a Pontiac Aztek

It looks like one of the Hyundai cars that was tailgating the shit outta of me this morning.

Definitely nope.

since the seats in the coupe fold down, I'm not sure the advantage is that great. But if I had a need for a car like that I'd buy one.

ichitaka05 05-05-2016 11:45 PM

Yeah... I kinda wish they made it rounder in the back instead straight line. Or make it aggressive like this

If they made this ver, I'll buy it in heartbeat

Sent from my mind

I still like yours @ichitaka05, but I do like the real world concept. Just have the boss pass your drawing along to Tada-san lol.

Honestly the 2017 would prob look good as a shooting brake

My first reaction: they slapped Veloster's rear on an 86.
