If you are a real lover of adrenaline, speed and high-performance sports cars, we have some great news for you. It has been officially confirmed that the second generation of the New GT-86 is going to hit the roads as a 2019 Toyota GT86 model.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Toyota GT86, this model is once again going to appear as a mid-size sports coupe. It will be available as a convertible, too. According to the information our team has got, the new GT-86 will probably be based on Toyota TNGA platform. Speaking of chassis, the carmaker will use lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber in order to save some weight and improve the acceleration and overall performance of this model. The exterior design of the 2019 GT-86 has definitely been inspired by racing cars with its long hood and shorter rear end. The front fascia will appear more aggressive and masculine. You will find a restyled hood with a lower and wider grille. The bumper will be redesigned and seem sportier. The headlights and fog lights will be using the latest LED technology. This sporty and aerodynamic car will also improve its suspension. In the back part of the vehicle, you will find the redesigned LED taillights. The only thing that has not been confirmed yet is whether Toyota will continue its collaboration with Subaru on this model.
Since the 2019 Toyota GT-86 should have a larger wheelbase, we can probably hope for more space inside its modern cabin. The carmaker will use some high-quality materials such as leather and some lightweight materials as well to furnish the interior of this model. The seats should be larger, supportive and comfortable. The driver will get a stylish dashboard as well as a center console with a touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system and numerous next-generation options.
