Good afternoon all
Thanks to the very kind people at Toyota and WhatCar? I've just spent an incredible day in France testdrivingthe Toyota GT86
The car is phenomenal...looks breathtaking in the flesh, extremely comfortable seats (even for my 6'7" frame) and e most fun I can ever remember having on road or track. They gave us the cars for the whole day and let us go and get lost on the B roads near Calais
Even have read all the reviews by Sutcliffe etc. I wasn't expecting to be blown away quite as much as I was. It definitely doesn't need more power - unless your planning on racing an AMG or M5 on an autobahn I rarely found the engine lacking - especially if you kept it high In the rev range
Ride is fairly firm (cant imagine the firmer BRZ's suspension on bigger wheels working) but you'd expect that in this kind of car. Looked amazing in burnt orange as well
The only reason I'm not signing up for an order today is I'm a little worried about residuals...I was thinking of a Porsche Cayman second hand for around 20k which would hold it's value far better and have more "prestige" but now seriously reconsidering. 5yr warrantee does make me think it would be a smashing second hand buy in 2-3years...
Let me know if you have any questions about it
