Thanks to patent filing images, we now have a better idea of how the upcoming 2021 Toyota GR86 looks like, ahead of the coupe's expected unveiling sometime this year.
The design filings lodged with Australia's Intellectual Property office (IP Australia) gives us a clearer look at the front bumper worn by prototypes spotted last year.
There's a few ways we can identify that the bumper belongs to the GR86 - most obvious among all is the fact that it keeps Gazoo Racing's (GR) design language, which is a wide grille wearing the 'functional matrix' motif.
Although we haven't got a look at the rest of the car and barring detail changes, the GR86 should look nearly nearly identical to the 2021 Subaru BRZ.
The upcoming GR86 will most likely share its platform and powertrain with the US-only BRZ, including the new 2.4-litre, naturally-aspirated four-cylinder 'boxer' engine.
Making 231 PS and 249 Nm, power is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
It'll still be some time before any of these models make it to Malaysia but if these images got you itching for the 86/BRZ currently on sale, check out this buying guide we have prepared for you.
And if you already have one, here's a look at the first five mods you can do to it!
