Rumor

Toyota Dead Serious on Building GT86 Sedan

And it may just have a few surprises that no one expected.

A few months ago rumors started to spread regarding a potential Toyota GT86 sedan in development. Around the same time, Toyota pretty much made official that a GT86/Scion FR-S convertible wasn’t in the cards anytime soon. What’s even more interesting is that a sedan is currently in the works and we have to look no further than the Subaru Cross Sport concept to provide major clues as to what the vehicle will look like.

Coming from Australian website Motoring, a Toyota source claims that regarding a production version of that concept, “"it’d be easy to bring the B-pillar forward, add a rear door and slant the rear roof section to create a viable sedan look." Because such a car would weigh more than the GT86 coupe, the source is also claiming that instead of the naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter boxer four, a turbocharger will be added for a total of around 300 horsepower. This newly added turbo could also be linked to Toyota’s hybrid system, with an electric motor placed at the front wheels. Translation: a hybridized turbo all-wheel-drive GT86 sedan. If this does happen, don’t expect for the car to debut until late 2016.
