The final production model completely reflects the aspirations of its creator, Toyota Senior Engineer Tetsuya Tada. As project leader Tada-san had total clarity of vision on both the priorities for the concept, and the end result.
The car is built in Subaru’s Gunma facility in Japan, and the companies basically sell as many cars as they can build. It’s been a great success and a crowning achievement for Tada-san.
Oh, and the final surprise and delight? The price. In Australian dollars the Toyota Eight-Six has carried a pricetag of $29,990 from Day One of sales up to the present time. If you want a ‘real’ sports coupe, with performance to match its looks – there’s just no excuse not to part with your dosh!
