here is the European press release

https://newsroom.toyota.eu/world-pre...all-new-gr-86/

Quote:
World Premiere of All-New GR 86
  • Faithful to the fun to drive characteristic concept of its predecessor
  • Responsive and engaging with light weight, low centre of gravity and agile handling
  • 3rd model in GR sports car line-up, joining widely-acclaimed GR Supra and GR Yaris
  • New 2.4-litre horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine delivers increased performance

The eagerly anticipated all-new GR 86 made its global debut today at a joint online event between TOYOTA GAZOO Racing and Subaru Corporation. Toyota’s latest sports car offering complements the GR portfolio, featuring the widely-acclaimed GR Supra and GR Yaris, as the third global GR model.

The new GR 86 inherits the key fun to drive characteristics of the original GT86, launched in 2012 and went on to sell over 200,000 units worldwide. It is expected to be the lightest four-seater coupé in the segment thanks to a wide range of weight saving initiatives such as the use of aluminium roof and body panels.

Powered by a new lightweight horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine which is increased to 2.4-litre displacement, the performance of the GR 86 is stepped up from its predecessor.

The dimensions of the new GR 86 are almost identical to the GT86, allowing the new model to maintain a low centre of gravity for enhanced agility. Torsional rigidity has also been increased by some 50% compared to the GT86 to deliver even sharper handling and steering ability.

Functional aerodynamic components such as the front air ducts and side rocker panels, among others, were developed from the model’s participation in motorsport, helping the GR 86 achieve expected best in class handling and stability.

The all-new GR 86 will be launched in Europe. More details will follow later this year.

This video seems to be rather descriptive when comparing the two.

I bet in the US we’ll only get the bland all black interior unfortunately. I like the look of this better than the BRZ, might have to switch sides next gen!

I'm not sure if I can convey this properly but, the front end of the GR86 has a certain balance that makes the car look right to me. It might be that it looks more substantial and is cleaner, also it appears a bit rounder from certain angles compared to the BRZ.

Not sure if any media have driven it but I'm excited and looking forward to owning one when I can.

Front looks cleaner than BRZ's.

Happy with my MX-5, but if I needed more than two seats again, I'd get an 86.

The article says it has 235hp and weighs 2799 curb.

Compared to 228hp on the BRZ.

Agreed. I suspect that, like the 1st gen, Toyota decided what it would look like and then Subaru designed their bumper/headlights/fendervents after the fact.

235 PS, not HP. It's 173kW/235PS/232HP

Maybe Subaru didn't have final numbers, maybe it was rounded differently, who knows.
Numbers are the same for both, 173kW:

I love the front bumper design but I can't get over that horrendous rear end. Otherwise, I like what I see and can't wait to see one in person!

Well that is a lot of hype for an announcement that is about as anticlimactic as you can get.
Slightly different lights and interior trim and a different bumper. So pretty much the differences between the 86 and the BRZ that have always existed.

I still strongly dislike the side vents and running boards. There is no way the whole model line should be branded as GR since that is pure marketing bullshit.
