Toyota GT86 Sedan Claimed to be Debuting at Dubai

Talk about a possible Toyota GT86 Sedan has been everywhere recently following on from Toyota’s recent decision to scrap both the Toyota GT86 turbo and Convertible variants for the time being.

However, with the Dubai International Motor Show just a day away, the official Facebook page for the biannual automotive show has claimed that the Toyota GT86 Sedan will debut as a concept model at the show very, very soon. If all goes well for the reveal of the GT86 Sedan Concept, there is talk suggesting that a production-ready version could appear as earlier as the Geneva Motor Show 2014 in March next year.

While details remain scarce about a possible Toyota GT86 Sedan, it’s reported that the car will feature the same 2.0-liter Subaru-sourced Boxer four-cylinder engine as the standard GT86 coupe. Arguably most significantly however, is the fact that the Toyota GT86 could also debut a new hybrid drivetrain system which Toyota is currently preparing for the next-gen Toyota GT86 coupe.

This hybrid system could incorporate similar technology as found in the hybrid system of the Toyota Yaris Hybrid R Concept. Consequently, it could feature a Kinetic Energy Recovery System just like Formula One cars.

Unsurprisingly, the Toyota GT86 Sedan will feature the same platform as the standard car but be stretched by around 100mm to increase space in the rear.
