More news on the new AE86 spiritual successor.

Recommended Posts

I know this isn't strictly classic JDM, or Datsun related, but anyway...

 

Our friends at Aussie JDM news site 7Tune.com have the news.

A 2+2 front engine, rear wheel drive sports car is planned to be the sprititual successor to the AE86 Toyota Sprinter Trueno/Carolla Levin, unbelievably at a price cheaper than the discontinued Toyota MR-S?

That is pretty cool - don't like the front much, but do like the back, and sounds like they're really keeping it close to the ingredients that made the AE86 so much (unexpected) fun...

Yeh, sweet, got a couple of mates with 86s, they cant wait to see what it can do.

I see this as being the best market to go for right now in performance, with drifting becoming such a popular motorsport now, small rear wheel drives with power are the way to go.  And there doesnt seem to be many on the market at the moment.

looks a little like the celica scrunched up from behind with a toyota paseo front end. Bit of a mish mash. reserve judgement till i see it in the flesh though.

 

Thanks for the link . I saw a shortwheelbase 350z story on there.  ;D
