I am.  First modern car that's moved me since the original WRX.  

I'm less enthused by the price increase though.

The GR86 however leaves me very cold.

ah i was wondering when the GR86 would come up for discussion. 

I quite like the front of it, but the rear is a bit too much.....BMW Z4? Front end certainly looks better than the GT86 in my opinion. 

I think Toyota are to be commended for sticking with the GR-86 as by all accounts the GT86 was not exactly a financial success. Only just broke even.  2.4L in the gr86, as opposed to the 2L GT86. Peak torque at 3700rpm? instead of 6400rpm or whatever it was. Should make it much more friendly to drive on the street. 

Ive been having evil thoughts about buying an older gt86....

Well dreaming is free, but it has an emotional cost. 

I was going to say that $12-15k seems to buy something pretty good, but that appears to be pre covid..... Now it seems to be $18-20k.......which is far to much for a car that will lose value...fast...

I'm sure there will be a basket case i can buy for $5k soon enough....

Well, how would the Yaris sell as-

"Red-hot pocket rocket, 4WD, active diffs, only $50,000 with a 2L flat-four turbo Subaru engine"

The Subaru's boxer reputation made sure the 86 was never going to be a popular car.

Dave there must be a lot of cheap ones come out of the 86 racing series, they treat them like stockcars.

Dave, maybe you'd like this one.

There are currently 295 off 86GTs on Carsales.com.au.   The bulk of them fall between $20K - $30K.  The very few that are listed at less than $20K, either are olde (2013-2017) or have lots of klms on them.

P.S.  Hey Dave, I've just found one for you under $5k . . . . . . . .  & it still drives well.
