Toyota GT86 facelift spied hiding several styling updates

Toyota continues testing of the facelifted GT86 as our spies have caught another prototype carrying front and rear camouflage.

Don’t hold your breath for a turbocharger as that’s not going to happen since the upcoming revision for the GT86 will encompass just a few styling tweaks. This particular prototype has a beefier front bumper that hosts a wider lower intake featuring mesh inserts while the headlights will likely feature new graphics.

Looking at the car’s side profile, there’s some black tape where the logo would normally be and also lower on the front fender. Moving at the back, you will notice a more prominent spoiler and possibly a new look for the bumper and the taillight graphics.

A few minor tweaks to the interior cabin are likely on the agenda as well, but don’t expect anything significant taking into account the Toyota GT86 has already received numerous updates since its introduction back in 2012.

Power will come from the same flat-four boxer 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine with 200 PS (147 kW) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft). Those who want more muscle will have to contact some of the aftermarkets specialists willing to slap on a turbocharger.

Toyota has already announced a second-gen GT86 is on its way and according to the latest gossip it will be based on the new Mazda MX-5 and use a 1.5-liter turbo with a KERS system. We will first catch a glimpse of the model in 2017 when a concept will allegedly be unveiled before the production car due by 2020.
