Reports are showing that Toyota will start the development of two brand new version of the GT86, the convertible and the sedan.
Rumors on Toyota planning a convertible version of the GT86 have been around for more than a year but it was eventually said that the carmaker has dropped the project, because of the economic crisis. According to the Australian media, the Toyota GT86 Convertible and the GT86 Sedan are back on track as the drop top is believed to be making its debut later on this year, being followed by its four-door brother in 2015.
The Toyota GT86 Sedan will be offered with a turbocharged gasoline engine under its hood and a new version of the model will be using a turbo-hybrid powertrain too, which will send power to the all-wheel drive system. The four-door GT86 will be 510 mm longer and 100 mm taller to at total of 4,750 mm and 1,400 mm, respectively, which will be translated into more rear legroom and headroom. It’s not certain yet whether Subaru will adopt the same changes on the BRZ. More details on the subject remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced later on this year.
