NAGOYA (Kyodo) — Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday orders for its new “86″ sports car totaled 7,000 vehicles in the month from Feb. 2, seven times more than its monthly sales target of 1,000 vehicles.

The robust orders indicate that a buyer placing an order now for the highest grade version of the new sports car, which goes on sale April 6, would have to wait until September or later to take delivery of the vehicle.

The “86″ is Toyota’s first sports car since 2007 when the automaker stopped making the MR-S, at the time the last sports car in production at Toyota.
