  1. It's a bargain compared to how much you need to spend to get a drive as good : Cayman/Boxster. Not as fast as those, fair play, but the steering is fractionally superior. This or the BRZ will do, test drive them both and be prepared for an awakening if all you have ever driven is hot hatches and FWD coupés.

  2. I will buy one next year, such a nice car!

    Ohhhh can't wait to pick it up tomorrow!

  4. fun fact: 51% of the price of the focus RS was taxes, and it costed an equal to roughly calculated £100k

  5. prodkill says:

    its a good car ..but no soul … no passion

  6. J4m3z1 says:

    I thought EVO hated the GT86…

  7. M3Nenough says:

    Well, if you want doors that sound nice, buy Audi and stay bored. The interior is not THAT bad. It's simble, yes, but if you want to see real shoddy quality, have a look at a Fiat for a start. Then keep in mind, Fiat saved Chrysler…thank you and good night!

  8. loOOooO says:

    Looks good, but the spoiler looks like something they took from a Pontiac Grand Am.

  9. n777ua says:

    Unfortunately falls prey to the old guard in Toyota who's goal is to cut costs at every corner. With this vehicle, you can spot it right away in the build quality of the body (try closing the door with the window down – sounds nasty), and the shoddy interior quality (horribly fit and disastrous materials)

    I suppose, could be the next supra.

  11. with a boxer engine of course it's underpowered but it does open up alot of oprtunities for tuning

  12. Bostel83 says:

    I want one!!!

  13. failtolawl says:

    Top Gear said it's underpowered

  14. Dan Wolf says:

    I love this car already, but I can't help but feel for £25k i would rather buy a second hand Exige and then wait for the depreciation of the GT86 to happen and buy later on.

  15. oguzsasi says:

    Because its a TOYOTA :)))

  16. KRSMK2 says:

    In all reviews of this car , the drivers always smile while testing lol

  17. Ben O'Connor says:


  18. Yes you can, but getting cars from other countries and cars with more horsepower than what is normal in Norway has loads of expensive fees that gets involved to get it registered. And also there is the taxes of course

  19. Probably not :p
    But there is some difference of course

  20. Another good example on how expensive cars and motoring is in Norway is by looking at the 2010 Camaro, which costs 300.000 Kroner in Sweden, and in Norway, for the same exact car you have to cash out 1.500.000 Kroner. Which is 5 times as much…..

  21. WaywardVerve says:

    Nah it more matches james may's ideal sports car which he wrote an article about.

  22. In my local area, the 0,5L beers are between 65 and 80 Kroner, which is about 11 to 13,50 US Dollars

  23. indeed. If I was a tuning company like Hamann, I'd immediatelly make an amazing tuning kit for looking more agressive and having 400 bhp.

  24. Linkcrc says:

    I think Jeremy Clarkson will love this car.

  25. So you can make money by buying it in USA and selling it in UK.

  26. Sagarism1 says:

    The people that gave the world the 2000GT, Celica, MR2, Supra, LF-A and AE86? Oh no.

  27. 77k US Dollars in Norway…..

  28. So, they made a mundane car with a sports car body, and we're supposed to sing its praises because it's RWD? It's like the car is wearing a Halloween costume–dressing up like a decent performer when in fact it's just a plain car. If they could boost the HP and get the transmission to work worth a damn, and make a decent interior, it might be a car worth a look. Otherwise people interested in a $25K sports car can look elsewhere for better value and performance (Hyundai Genesis comes to mind).

  29. It usually is with other cars, but not with this.

  30. imantisocial says:

    its called badge engineering, look it up

  31. imantisocial says:

    200 hp is less than 300 hp, thats why.

  32. phtmexplo says:

    Simple … to make it cheaper.

  33. Subaru need to bring out a 4 wheel drive version with a turbo on it. The BRZ WRX mb?

  34. socialperson says:

    why would scion, Toyota and Subaru produce the exact same car?

  35. NeATaNDtURdy says:

    25k cash here in Canada

  36. Drcfan says:

    Why $25k in the US and £25k in the UK and $45k in Switzerland. Rip-Off !!!

  37. jo23bulls says:

    that sucks that europe has to pay twice as much as we do. Maybe we get a discount since we probably sell the most units because of our population.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it cost less to bring the frs/gt86 to the states than Europe or to the aussies.

  38. Pez says:

    henry loves to catchpole in his arse

  39. BlueHokage says:

    I make "big skids" in my underpants

  40. alessiopt83 says:

    I drove it… fantastic… but needs hp…

  41. zarrow says:

    nope, you're dumb.

  42. wow you are dumb.

  43. The car is nice, the driver is goddamn adorable.

  44. brutepunk25 says:

    i think this car will be good in drifting (with more mods on the engine and aero of course).

  45. Malikot911 says:

    they have almost the same everything… but they dont handle the same…… look it up….
