Toyota 86 Shooting Brake Concept NEEDS to be Built

I really like the Toyota 86 (formerly Scion FR-S) and its Subaru BRZ twin. If I were in the market for a light sport car for the track, it would be in consideration for sure. If Toyota actually built this new concept, I would definitely be in the market. Sadly, the 86 Shooting Brake Concept has a snowball’s chance in hell of being produced.

The car is a one of a kind concept that takes the profile of the 86 sports car and turns it into a wagon. The roofline is extended and gives the back seat riders a bit more headroom. It is on the same wheelbase, so no more legroom, but tis the price you pay for a small, light coupe.

The car was conceived in Australia and then hand-built in Japan. “The Shooting Brake concept is a classy option for active couples or a second car for families who want something different,” Toyota Australia manager of national marketing Brad Cramb said in a statement. “Equally suited to weekends away as well as the track, it’s a car you could buy with your head and your heart.”

“While we never say never, and I would love this concept to become a production reality, it is very much a concept that demonstrates the passion within Toyota for cars that are fun to drive,” Tetsuya Tada said in a statement.
