In the last year or so, few new performance cars have attracted more attention than the Toyota 86, Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. If reports are to believed, it sounds like Toyota would like to to complement the 86 with two additional rear-drive sports cars. According to Car Advice, chief engineer Tatsuya Tada has confirmed that Toyota has already begun development on both larger and smaller cars to join the 86 in the lineup.
Although neither has been approved for production yet, the idea would be to have the current 86 sit right in the middle of the three. The larger car would most likely be the oft-rumored new version of the Supra (perhaps produced in partnership with BMW), while the smallest would sit below the 86. Obviously details are sketchy at this point, but the idea of having not one but three rear-drive Toyotas is certainly something to be excited about.
Would the new small car be a reborn MR2? A roadster? Something else? We’re curious to hear your thoughts on this!
