Motor Trend recently took the Toyota 86 860 Edition out on the road and writer Stefan Ogbac’s analysis can be distilled into two words: PURIST PERFECTION!
On the road, the Toyota 86 reveals itself as a thoroughbred driver’s car—razor sharp and seriously fun to drive. The car’s chassis shines on the winding roads where you can explore its handling capabilities without the risk of losing your driver’s license. Through the twisting mountain roads of Southern California, the 86 stays planted and flat, and when combined with its precise steering, it feels like a scalpel slicing through the road with pinpoint precision. Along with its twin, the Subaru BRZ, the Toyota 86 gives the driver so much confidence that on twisty roads, you’ll find yourself taking corners at higher-than-normal speeds. Unlike the Mazda MX-5 Miata, there’s minimal body roll, but you still know exactly what the car is doing as it communicates with you.
Real talk: we all love our kids but is anyone else counting down the days until the first day of school? ✋
There is so much to talk about here… this commercial is pure eighties cheese and it’s glorious. Check out the way the actor is “driving” behind that steering wheel–amazing, right? [Keep reading/scrolling for photos of the classic Toyota truck.]
