At the one-year anniversary event of the Toyota 86 in Canberra, Australia, Tatsuya Tada confirmed Toyota is interested in building two more sports cars.
What they will be called is anyone’s guess at this point. But, it is now confirmed Toyota is looking to build two more sports cars in addition to the already popular Scion FR-S/Toyota GT86.
The two cars will be significantly different, with one being larger than the FR-S and developed in conjunction with BMW. The other, a smaller car than the FR-S, could be built from a new platform with a new partner. This was confirmed by Toyota’s head of sports car development, Tatsuya Tada.
“Akio Toyoda always says to me, Toyota sports car [family] should be three sports car brothers. 86 is in the middle.” Tada said to Australia’s CarAdvice.
The larger car is expected to be a spiritual successor to the Supra, and possibly be named as such, while the smaller car could be called Celica or MR2, depending on where Toyota decides to place the engine.
