Toyota would never do that...Same as making a Polo GTI quicker than the Golf
True that. And most of their cars here are targeted at Oom Frik and he's tannie Anna always wanting to speak to the manager :ROFLMAO:

At R201 000 and with a 0-100 time of 9ish seconds, I think they should have gone for the more powerful engine.

You could get cars that performed better than that for not much more, looked better and weren't a Yaris (being a Yaris is the key problem).

The Toyota 86 starts at R550 028.02 here in the UK (Googled pounds to rand) and I'm not surprised. Cars here are cheaper as a base cost but the other expenses add up.

These are the costs that really nail you:
  1. Insurance
  2. Petrol
  3. MOT costs
  4. Road tax

Anything vaguely interesting means that insurance goes through the roof, petrol is £1.29 a litre and road tax starts at £149 for a elcheapo car.

Decent 2nd hand 86 here is about R230K, and insurance is about R880.00 P/M (maybe a bit less if you over 25)

I think we found the target market for the 255bhp version.
There was an older model that went on Carb early last year that I was keen to get, but alas it was sold out from under me. I ended up getting a Haval H6C. It is an absolute pleasure to drive, but it is way bigger than I need, as at most I have a work and gym bag in my car or the gf.

I was also looking at the 86- it's Soo sexy but I would always have to add alittle mods to make more torque. Same thing with the mx5- which I would also love to own.

Both great cars and both n/a.

Got the focus St rather as don't need to add mods and it's got plenty of get up and go when u need it lol. Ticks alot more boxes than the other 2 for me.

I think a small turbo 86 would be alot of fun from the factory or just do a super charged one from factory. Save all that cash on r&d

For £3134 (R59000) could DIY turbo it yourself.

You would need to tune the car and have it checked by someone who knows turbo conversions but that’s still ~R290K for the car and turbo.


I’d also not expect to see that money back so expect to keep the car for life - kitcars and turbo conversions do not sell for very much second hand. People say “look at all this money I spent on it, it must be worth a fortune” but it isn’t.

I would love to build a kMiata as a toy with a supercharger or k24 motor as a toy.

But it's a 3rd car than and not for sale ever. Always wanted a project car- NC could be a nyc base to work from.

If only there was a way to stuff a compact straight 6 in there and add cylinder deactivation so its also economical

Sooo

A bit of a buzzkill

Carmag.co.za says there are no plans to launch the new 86 in SA.

I wonder if that’s because SA is still on euro 3 spec petrol?

The new euro spec is version 6.

Edit: yes, looks like it Toyota GT86
It's the reason why the new Fiesta ST wasn't going go on sale in SA.

Diesel in SA is the latest Euro spec but not petrol.
