Name and heritage
The development code of this vehicle is 086A2 and its main production names 86 (pronounced “eight-six” or Hachi-Roku (ハチロク) in Japanese, but more commonly pronounced as “eighty-six”) or GT86, reference historic Toyota front engined and rear-wheel drive sports coupés and hatchbacks, in the form of:
the 1967 2000GT (Japan’s seminal coupé whose design cues adorn the 86 and which was also powered by a 2.0 litre engine); and
the 1983 to 1987 AE86 range (renowned for its handling and drifting abilities).
Toyota also referenced to its first sports car, the Sports 800, given that both this car and the 86 share a boxer engine layout,3 as widely used by project partner and 86 manufacturer, Subaru.
The 86’s engine, known by the Toyota code 4U-GSE and Subaru code FA20, is a naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that uses Subaru’s horizontally opposed boxer engine design, with the addition of Toyota’s D-4S injection system, which uses both direct and port fuel injection. Given its placement, the 86 can be considered having a front mid-engine, rear wheel drive drivetrain layout. The engine runs on 98 RON (premium unleaded) fuel and features a 12.5:1 compression ratio and a bore and stroke of 86 mm (3.4 in) that results in 200 horsepower (149 kW; 203 PS) at 7,000 rpm and 151 lb·ft (205 N·m) of torque at 6,000 rpm. As part of the 86’s low-weight design, the car utilizes an aluminium hood, a solid roof, and a trunk as opposed to a hatchback. The boxer engine sits as far back and as low as possible in the engine bay for a weight distribution of 53% in front and 47% in the rear. The low-sitting engine provides a lower center of gravity, allowing the engine to sit lower than the Nissan GTR and just 0.6 inches higher than the Lexus LFA.
The 86, BRZ and FR-S are offered with two 6-speed transmissions, an in-house developed Toyota TL70 manual gearbox (based on Aisin AI’s AZ6) and an Aisin-Warner A960E, which is modified from that used on the Lexus IS 250. The automatic uses a traditional wet torque converter design, but its software has been engineered to mimic the response of a dual-clutch gearbox. The automatic transmission uses three different modes: Sport, Snow, and Normal. A torque sensing limited slip differential is standard on most models.
The vehicles are offered with 16 in (41 cm) steel and alloy wheels shod with Yokohama dB Decibel E70 tyres in 205/55 size or 17 in (43 cm) alloy wheels shod with Michelin Primacy HP tyres (as used on the Toyota Prius) in 215/45 size, depending on sales market. The limited editions Toyota Racing Development (TRD) GT86 models are instead offered with 18 in (46 cm) forged aluminium wheels, which are shod with either Yokohama Advan Sport tyres Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres in 225/40 size, also depending on market. All non-TRD cars feature ventilated front disc brakes and solid rear disc brakes on base models or, on higher models, also ventilated rear disc brakes with two piston-opposed calipers in the front and single caliper design in the rear. The TRD editions instead have an upgraded braking system comprising upsized TRD two-piece rotors and TRD six-pot 355mm front and four-pot 345mm rear calipers (compared to the GTS’ 294mm and 290mm calipers and GT’s 277mmm and 286mm, respectively). Suspension design comprises front MacPherson struts and double wishbones at the rear.
The 86 was designed around a front-mounted boxer engine, rear-wheel drive configuration, inspired by the AE86. The flat architecture of the boxer engine allows it to be mounted low, dropping the center of gravity down, resulting in sporty handling characteristics.3 The exterior design of the 86 was inspired by the Toyota 2000GT’s extremely low-to-the-ground profile and long, sleek hood. Its design cues translate onto the 86 in such areas as: upward trailing edge of the doors; the upward finish to the side-window line; the front and rear haunches; the circular taillights set in silver (singular instead of double as on the 2000GT).
The “86” boxer and drifting side badge on Toyota and Scion models
According to the 86’s designers, “The goal was to create an authentic rear-wheel drive sports car with compelling style, exceptionally balanced performance and handling, flexible utility and surprising MPG.”3 When asked about the TRD version of the car, the lead engineer Mr. Tada said “There is definitely going to be a more TRD oriented variant down the line. However any of the parts that would be standard on the TRD model will fit on your current Toyota 86 so there is no need to wait.”
The 86 “boxer” side badge appears on all Toyota and Scion versions of the car, but not the Subaru BRZ. Aside from badging, the main differences between the 86/GT86 and the BRZ are the front grilles and bumper bars. The rest, including the 17 inch alloy wheels, are shared.
To enhance its identity, the vehicle is also characterized by symbolic references and various motifs associated with the number 86 and Toyota heritage:
the engine bore and stroke is 86mm x 86mm
the diameter of the exhaust tip is also 86mm
the side badge mentioned above symbolizes the horizontal layout of the boxer engine and its crank motif is the number 86 stylized to resemble a drifting car from above
a subtle “T” motif (for Toyota and representing the brand’s vintage logo) is present in the T-mesh pattern of the front grille, door-switch base, instrument panel, meters, triangular rear-centre foglamp and spare-wheel cover.
The optional upgraded interior of a North American Subaru BRZ, equipped with leather and Alcantara seats, push-button start, and automatic climate control
The interior features a 2+2 seating configuration, which utilizes low mounted front seats. The rear seats fold down enabling increased storage space for larger items. Three interior variations exist, the FR-S and base 86 models have cloth seats with all black interior trim that features a black patterned dash trim, while the shift boot features red stitching. The BRZ has two available interiors, one identical to the FR-S but with silver dash trim, a red stitched parking brake boot, black gauge faces (instead of the white tachometer of the 86 GTS models) and a touch-screen navigation head unit; the second option upgrades to leather and Alcantara heated seats, automatic HVAC controls, and a push-button start. The top-of-the-range 86 models are fitted like the BRZ except as noted above, and the Japanese interior can be had in black/red leather and Alcantara or full black leather and Alcantara (Australia being offered only the latter).
Top speed: 145 mph (233 km/h)
0–62 mph (0–100 km/h): 7.6 s (Toyota, Motor Trend, claimed)
0–60 mph (0–97 km/h): 6.0-6.2 s (estimate)
Standing 1/4 Mile: 14.7-14.9s
Print was designed using a mix of adobe illustrator and photoshop so the print is scalable (printable) in any size without the loss of resolution.
Enjoy and let me know if you wish any customization to the print (with no additional cost).
