  • Rumours: Third-gen Toyota GR86 to swap boxer engine for a 330 PS turbo 3-pot hybrid unit?

    The first Toyobaru twin, the Toyota GR86 and Subaru BRZ are probably the best sports cars for beginners.

  • Best Toyota GR86 yet is the 40th anniversary of the AE86 but you'll need to to be a betting man to buy it

    Understandably, Toyota is excited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic Toyota Corolla AE86 that was launched all the way back in 1983. To do so, it skipped the candles and heartfelt speeches but has instead done so in true petrolhead fashion by releasing a special version of the car’s modern successor, the GR86. Dubbed the GR86 40th Anniversary Limited, only 200 units will be made for Japan only and getting your hands on one will take quite a bit of luck. The reason being that interes

  • They don't make them like they used to, except Toyota with the GR Corolla and GR86

    Time magazine labelled 2020 as the “worst year ever” for most of us alive today. We witnessed the widespread cancellation of gatherings, global lockdowns, and the far-reaching consequences these had on the economy. Our lifestyles have probably been changed as well. It’s a year to forget for many, but in the midst of all of it, the automotive world was gifted a rally homologation special – the Toyota GR Yaris. It was a car that made zero financial sense. Toyota, as a company, could’ve carried on

  • Review: 2023 Toyota GR86 - The 'L' license car for keen drivers

    Learning is a never-ending process; this concept applies to driving too. Toyota embodies this culture through the philosophy of continuous improvement – kaizen. As drivers, so should we, given the number of cars we have and the amount of time we spend on the road. When it comes to driving, I’d like to divide it into two categories – street driving and performance driving. There are some overlaps between the two but they are distinct enough to warrant separate consideration, because excelling in

    Fuelled by recent rumours about the rebirth of the Toyota Celica, BestCarWeb of Japan has released rendered images of what the rebirth Toyota Celica could look like.

  • It's happening! Re-birth of Toyota Celica, Chairman Toyoda and CEO Sato dropped some clues

    When the Toyota GR Supra was first revived in 2018, then President and CEO Akio Toyoda had expressed hopes of having ‘three brothers’ of sports cars to complete the line-up, joining the GR 86. The MR2 and Celica were obvious candidates, but work along this direction went quiet as Toyota introduced the GR Yaris and GR Corolla. The sports car market is an incredibly difficult one to make a successful business case. Very few buyers are willing to put their money where their mouth (or keyboard strok
