Toyota GT 86 TRD Officially Revealed: 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon

The GT 86 will spawn a new legion of fanboys for the Toyota brand – a result it was purpose-built to achieve. And if there’s one thing die-hard automotive enthusiasts love more than spouting off engine and chassis codes, it’s factory performance parts. In this case: Toyota Racing Development… or TRD for short.

With Toyota unveiling its new GT 86 sports car at the Tokyo Motor Show in early December, the automaker has now rolled out the TRD version at the Tokyo Auto Salon – Japan’s largest aftermarket event. Available TRD accessories for the GT 86 (sold in North America as the Scion FR-Sread our review here), include a new front lip and rear trunk-lid spoiler.

Also available are larger 18-inch TRD wheels, which can fit wider 225 tires, plus a TRD brake upgrade. Adding a slight dose of extra power is a TRD exhaust system, while a suite of suspension components will also be offered.

Toyota has yet to confirm as much, but it will offer a long list of TRD goodies for the Scion FR-S in North America.

    This car should sell to a limited clientele in the USA however much will depend on price. With cars like the Subaru BRZ on the horizon for 2013 this car will need to be priced around $21K to $24K in order to compete. Subaru already have a demonstrated excellence in saloon sports cars, built around the Subaru Impreza WRX. Toyota has no such credentials since the MR2 was wound up.

    Unfortunately there isn’t much to differentiate this car from the herd of sport saloons and it’s not a car likely to set my heart afire. Toyota has become somewhat reactive in its car design of late. The Prius is the obvious stand-out innovation but dates back to some creative thinking before the era of soaring gas prices. I see few signs of such creativity in today’s lineup.

    But this is indeed the most sporty car available from Toyota so I wish them well. Me? I’ll take a look at the supercharged version but after owning Toyotas for over 25 years I suspect my next, and last, pure gasoline powered car with be the Subaru Impreza WRX.

    Alastair, you are overlooking the fact that the FR-S and the BRZ are the same car. They are a joint venture by both companies, a mostly Toyota designed body with a Subaru designed engine. I for one cannot wait for these cars to hit the dealership. Being a lightweight, modestly-powered RWD car with a 6-speed and (small) rear seats, it ticks off almost every box on what I want and need from a vehicle. Also, with the BRZ starting just shy of $25K, with a possible turbo model on the horizon, the Scion should be very close.
