Toyota 86: The Sports Coupe Backed by Toyota Quality

A sports coupe from Toyota? Yes - really. It's a sports coupe made by Toyota and it's known as the 86. To be fair, its roots go back to the Scion FR-S, but this is Toyota's sporty baby now and they are infusing it with a heavy dose of quality and reliability to go along with its performance and good looks. This is definitely one sharp looking vehicle and it comes with bona-fide performance credentials under the hood along with an amazing amount of interior amenities.

Consider the as your sports car option if you're looking for a long lasting and dependable ride. It's also got something else you might not get with the sports coupes from other automakers: a reasonable price. Sure, you can overpay and go with one of the options from the so-called luxury automakers, or you can go with this somewhat unknown gem from the legendary Toyota brand.

Why has the Toyota 86 flown under the radar up until this point? That's a good question. For starters, it might be because solid performers like the Camry and the RAV4 tend to dominate sales for the automaker. It could also be because consumers just don't generally associate Toyota with performance models like this. Whatever the case may be, our mission at Toyota of Plano is to bring more awareness to this incredible vehicle and all the value it offers.

History of the Toyota 86

The Toyota 86's history actually dates all the way back to 1965 when it was released as the world's first two-seat sports car known as the Sports 800. The following decades would see the vehicle undergo a variety of changes and enhancements along with various nameplates.

While the vehicle was seemingly off the automotive market radar for some time, it reappeared in 2012 under the guise of the Subaru BRZ and the Scion FR-S. The Scion brand ended up getting discontinued in 2016, and Toyota made the decision to rebrand the FR-S as the 86 in 2017.

Now with a few years of Toyota engineering under its belt, the 86 is ready to be introduced to a broader market looking for a high-quality sports coupe backed by Toyota quality, dependability, and reliability
