Tetsuya Tada, the man behind the Toyota 86, has recently made an attention-grabbing announcement at an international media event: there are plans for two more sports cars that might be released in the future ranking somewhere below and above the 86.
According to Tada, the 86 is just the first of three sports cars that Toyota is planning to roll out, and that the 86 is the middle of the two in terms of market positioning.
“The first is more mass-market and cheaper than the 86,” Tada revealed. “And the third is more upmarket than the 86.”
When asked if the higher-end sports car is the successor to the Supra, Tada said it could possibly be but that nothing is sure yet since his team is still in the process of conceptualizing the two other Toyota sports cars. He also noted that it takes five years to develop a sports car from conceptualization to production, as compared with the three years it normally takes to develop a regular vehicle.
