When these spy photos hit our inbox, we were skeptical right away.
In the photos we see a Toyota GT86 fitted with a carbon fiber hood, roof and trunk as well as a set of lightweight Volk wheels.
It certainly doesn’t look like any sort of production car and Toyota was quick to calm any suspicion. “I’m checking into this and will let you know if we can get any more specifics, but at this time, it’s not an official prototype,” Toyota spokeswoman Nancy Hubbell told us via e-mail.
However, our spy photographer has confirmed that the DAU 0684 plates are the official testplates that Toyota uses and that the car was spotted during an official test session for the car industry.
