Earlier, we had reason to celebrate as production for the Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86 had finally kicked off in Japan. The highly anticipated sports coupe will make its way to America as the Scion FR-S to hot anticipation.

But just in case we’ve all forgotten how great the Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S is, the Japanese automaker released a series of videos featuring Toyota design chief “Dezi” Nagaya at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show talking about the GT86′s design story. The four part series is accompanied with a video featuring Tetsuya Tada, Toyota chief engineer who is the main man behind the acclaimed GT86.

The videos offer insight to the inspirational design of the GT86, including how it pays tribute to the classic Toyota 2000GT. Nagaya also talks about the exterior and interior design, and even goes so far as to tell how the “86″ logo came to usher in the new-generation sports car.
