With a sedan variant of the Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ set to debut in some form in the near future, another rendering has been released showcasing just how such a family-oriented sports car could look.
This rendering comes courtesy of RM Design and looks surprisingly good. Sure, adding two extra doors to one of the most popular affordable sports cars in the world at the moment might seem sacrilegious, this definitely looks better than most five-door family cars out there!
With development of the Toyota GT86 Convertible delayed, sources indicate that Toyota recently gave the green light for a concept version of the Toyota GT86 Sedan to be created and shown off at a major motor show sometime 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.
