The Australian Toyota 86 will be available in seven colours and Toyota Australia expects that the sale split to be 50:50 between the two models and transmission choices. 1500 units are predicted for 2012 (six month of retail at 250 units a month) with that target rising to 1800 units for 2013 and 1200 for 2014. We expect the Toyota 86 to launch in Australia on the 7-8th of June.

Toyota Australia Official Press Release – The concept becomes reality

Since we designed the legendary 2000 GT over 40 years ago, we have created many exciting sports cars and enjoyed considerable motor racing success with them.

Now our FT-86 II Concept – the latest in the sports tradition set by the legendary AE 86 – is no longer a concept. It’s a reality.

The car that got the press buzzing

Introducing the production version, the car that’s got Top Gear ‘very excited’ and the rest of the world’s automotive press buzzing. Here in Australia, it’s called the Toyota 86. In Europe, it’s called the GT 86 and in the USA, it’s the SCION FR-S.

The world’s first horizontally opposed D-4S engine

The 86 is a rear wheel drive sports car powered by the world’s first horizontally opposed D-4S engine. This combines ‘boxer’ engine technology (first seen in Toyota’s Publica Sports in 1962) with our cutting edge D-4S direct and port injection technology.

The 2.0 litre, normally aspirated D-4S engine has separate twin injectors for both direct and port injection and a high compression ratio of 12.5:1. It delivers 147kW of power and generates plenty of torque over a wide range of engine speeds.

A combination of lightweight body and superb aerodynamics ensures that every ounce of power is put to very good use.

Six-speed transmission

The 86 is available with a six-speed manual transmission or an advanced sports shift six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. It’s equipped with a specially designed sports steering wheel, sports seats and sports pedals.

Toyota 86 features:

  • World’s first 2.0 litre horizontally opposed with D-4S direct and port injection engine technology
  • Choice of six-speed manual or advanced sports shift six-speed automatic with paddle shifters
  • Max power: 147kW
  • Max torque: 205Nm
  • Limited Slip Differential (LSD)
  • Alloy Wheels

Toyota 86 will be launching in 2012. Stay tuned by signing up for the latest news and updates.

Subaru’s largest Australian dealerships would have limited numbers of the BRZ in its showroom by May, potentially beating the Toyota 86 to market, which is due in “mid-2012”.

Subaru is likely to only have one high-spec version of the vehicle. Subaru will confirm more details closer to its local launch. Expect prices slightly higher than the Toyota version, which is tipped to start between $35,000 and $40,000.
