The new Toyota GR 86 will essentially also be the new Subaru BRZ as both cars were jointly developed

Toyota launched the original 86 in 2012 and it was conceived as a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicle with intuitive handling and instinctive responsiveness. Since then, the car has been used in several participatory motorsports, including rallies, one-make races, gymkhana, and dirt trails, in addition to individual customisation. Now, the new Toyota GR 86 will essentially also be the new Subaru BRZ as both cars were jointly developed, however, TGR has worked on giving the car distinctive driving characteristics. The main aim was to develop a vehicle that would please the fans of the original 86, and realise an evolution of the 86's unique driving sensations. As a result, the new GR 86 is specially designed for sports performance.
