  1. Despite a few manufacturers keeping the manual gearbox alive by still offering it in their cars, it is inevitable that days of the manual gearboxes are numbered. In a report published by Carbuzz, Toyota U.S. recorded its Corolla having a take-up rate of less than 1 percent for the manual option. This meant that out of the 280,000 Corollas sold in the US during 2018, less than 2,800 of them were ordered with a manual gearbox. This is despite Toyota offering its more sporty hatchback with a new six-speed gearbox. Meanwhile, only 5 percent of buyers for its Yaris chose the manu
  2. Kia has shown its first rear-wheel drive sports car at the Detroit motor show. The GT4 Stinger was shown to the press as the brand’s potential rival for the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ. The GT4 Stinger is a 2+2, front-engined coupe powered by a 311bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine taken from Kia’s Optima racecars. That makes it substantially more powerful than the Toyota, with its 197bhp, but like the 86, the Kia is focused on being a proper driver’s car. Hence, the 4.26-metre long coupe has been designed to weigh a mere 1315kg in production form, runs double wishbone
  3. Fans of the 86 listen up. Rumour has it that Toyota is preparing a power boost for its popular 86 sports coupe. The Japanese brand has teased numerous concepts of its two-door cult car with upgraded engines, including a supercharged TRD version (above) built in the U.S.A and a twin-charged version (below) created by its in-house skunkworks Gazoo Racing. But those were designed to showcase the ability for aftermarket tuners and were not really suitable for mainstream production. Now, the Chief Engineer of the 86, Tetsuya Tada, has finally admitted that his team is
  4. With the recent introduction of an open-top concept of the Toyota 86 at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, it seems that Toyota have been rather busy with their new model. And at the same time, they are considering to launch a top range version of the Toyota 86 that will be powered by a hybrid drivetrain. Tetsuya Tada, Toyota's chief engineer, has stated that designers at the Japanese auto firm have already begun work on the 86's mid-cycle facelift. The facelift model will receive some changes on the bodywork and on top of that, there will be a more powerful version of the car. It will
  5. For those of you who have been longing for a convertible version of the Toyota 86 coupe, your wait might be over soon. Toyota will be presenting the FT-86 Open Concept in March's Geneva Motor Show. For now, the Japanese carmaker has showed an official sketch of the concept which reveals a 2+2 seating layout. On the concept, Toyota says that it previews a possible future development of the award-winning GT86 sports coupe and its goal is to gauge the public's reaction to the idea of an open-top GT86. Toyota adds that the prototype version of the FT-86 is already undergoing testing. If
  6. Many love the Toyota 86 (or Scion FR-S in some markets) sports coupe. While numerous reviews of it stated that it is a fun car to drive but many were disappointed with the performance. People have been hoping for a forced induced variant but Toyota has been very clear about one thing about the car from the very beginning and that is there will be no forced induced version of the car. Instead, they are considering a more unique way of increasing power for the car and that is to introduce a hybrid system. Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer of the Toyota 86, has said that the company is
  7. Just recently, Subaru revealed the Subaru BRZ STI at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney. The car is said to be available for sale soon. And soon after that, the company announced that there are plans to release a turbocharged version of the car. While Toyota has released a TRD version of the 86 before this, the car only received aftermarket cosmetic parts such as a bodykit, suspension system and some TRD badges. Many were expecting a turbocharger or supercharger to be included as well. Just days after images of a Subaru BRZ wearing a huge GT wing and a STI bodykit
  8. Just a few days ago, I stumbled on a Facebook page that would interest many car enthusiasts. Known as Hive, the pictures you see here are actually car posters. There are designed by a New Zealander guy who goes by the name of Joel Fletcher. Joel Fletcher (who I strongly believe is a graphic designer) uses his designing knowledge to create these rather incredible looking automotive posters. There is even a video on the page which shows how he makes them and he has mentioned that he uses the Adobe InDesign software. Some of his creations are grouped in one poster, for examp
  9. While Borneo Motors have been retailing TRD performance parts for its Toyota range since June, Toyota will hold a premiere during the Paris motor show at the end of the month for the European release. TRD, an acronym for Toyota Racing Development, has been developing tuning parts for Toyota automobiles in Japan for more than 50 years, and soon will be available throughout Europe for the first time. In Paris, a GT86 (as its called there) fitted with select parts will highlight the exterior, interior and mechanical components that are available. The TRD parts will not be group
  10. From the land that brings us the Transformers cartoon series comes a new Japanese franchise with a similar concept. Called the Chō Soku Henkei Gyrozetter, the new franchise has licensed several Japanese hot performance vehicles such as the Toyota 86, Mazda RX-8, Nissan GT-R and Mitsubishi Evo. Created by Square Enix, the company behind the Final Fantasy video game franchise and Dragon Quest Series, Chō Soku Henkei Gyrozetter was first launched recently as an arcade game with an animated film version set to be released later this year. Will the new film be able to achieve the
  11. Sales numbers for the Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ has proven that the car is big hit with the consumers and it is not surprising that other automakers are taking notes about it. It is reported that Nissan is developing its own sports coupe to compete with Toyota and Subaru after been given the green light. This is not the first time Nissan has plans to develop a compact sports model. In 2008, Nissan was working on a 200SX/Silvia successor but the world economy at that time doesn't look too good and the idea was shelved. Now, a good question to ask is; how will the car look like?
  12. As most of you know, whenever a new car is launched into the local automotive market, sgCarMart writes a honest review about it, along with awesome photos to spice it up. Photoshoots can take a whole day with 3 to 4 of the team going around this little island, finding new locations to give our viewers amazing photos. For the Toyota 86, it wasn't an easy task making sure the photos portray exactly how amazing the car looks inside out. So before the actual review comes out on sgCarMart's articles page, we'd like to give you guys a sneak preview of this little red devil on the roads.
  13. [extract] The Toyota 86 is one of the most anticipated sports cars that came out from Japan in the past few years. But as soon as it was released, many complained about the lack of power and wanted more out of it. It seems that these clamouring have not gone unnoticed because Toyota will display a much more powerful 86 at the 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed. Toyota will bring two special versions of the Toyota 86 at this year
  14. It's been several months since the production version of the Toyota 86 and the Subaru BRZ was first shown to the world. And as you read this, many countries would have already released these two models. Toyota was the first to unveil the car to the world late last year at the Fuji Speedway race track in Japan and Subaru soon followed suit with their BRZ. First started out as a concept (the FT-86) and now we get to see two versions of it (three if you were to count the Scion FR-S). But, who really owns the 86/BRZ? It is a rather difficult question to answer and it seems that both
  15. "Cars from Toyota look boring." I am not surprised if you have heard something like this before as I have heard it many times. When Toyota stopped offering several sporty looking models roughly ten years ago, many people have mentioned that the Japanese automaker's cars after that look a little dull. "The company wants to improve its car design into its future models. Toyota already has good reliability in manufacturing cars but their design has been rather weak. Our cars are frequently characterised as 'appliances' and the automaker wants to turn that around," explained Kevin Hunte
  16. After the release of the Toyota 86 and rumours of a Supra successor set to be released in a few years time, there is no doubt that things are changing in the Japanese auto firm. Once known for releasing boring cars, now the company is back on track with a new sports model and it seems that we are going to see more sports orientated models from Toyota. Some of us may have already known about a Supra successor that is slated for a release roughly in 2015. Rumored reports have mentioned that the car will be based on the Gazoo Racing Sports Hybrid Concept. But, latest reports have st
  17. [extract] Ever since the release of the Toyota variant for the Toyobaru sports car, the GT86, the company has been busy showing to the world what the latest model is capable of. Subaru recently unveiled the GT300 racing version of the BRZ cousin which will be fielded in the Japan SuperGT racing series. And now, it is Toyota
  18. The triplet siblings of the Toyota 86, Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S are the most anticipated Japanese sports cars in recent years. Why would I say that? Basically, Toyota has not offered a sports coupe model ever since the early 2000s and this has made JDM lovers more excited over it. Toyota has built desirable sport coupes since the 1960s, from the 2000GT to the Supra, and these cars are sought after by many enthusiasts all around the world. These enthusiasts love them not because of their performance but more on its simplicity and some would swear that these cars handle so sweetly. E
  19. [extract] The Toyota 86 was only released several months ago and the car received a lot of attention since it is Toyota
  20. The jointly developed new sports coupe (86, FR-S and BRZ) from Toyota and Subaru has yet to arrive in the showrooms around the world. But some tuners have made specially designed units of the abovementioned cars. And the car you see above is just one example of it. Scion unveiled this specially made car at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show and it is named as the Scion Racing Greddy FR-S race car. This car was built by team crews from Scion Racing and Greddy. Greddy is a performance parts company that has worked with Toyota previously and has been involved in racing for over twenty years.
  21. As I write this article (27/12/11), there will be only a few days left to 2011. Many things have happened in the automotive industry in 2011. This is not a list of the best or worst of 2011 in the automotive industry but more like a recap of some of the incidents/news that took place in the automotive world in 2011. Japan earthquake and tsunami catastrophe The 9.0 magnitude earthquake that happened in Japan on 11 March 2011 caused extensive damage to a lot of things. Not only properties and infrastructures were damaged, a significant number of human lives were lost as well. It was
  22. [extract] Ever since the release of the Toyota 86, many rumours have surfaced which mentioned about Toyota
  23. Initially when the Subaru BRZ was released recently, Subaru announced that there will be no turbocharged version of their BRZ model. Many in the automotive world were left disappointed. Some felt that it would be a waste for Subaru not to release a powerful version of the car. Furthermore Subaru is known for their expertise in turbocharged engines and since the BRZ is using a boxer engine, that piece of news make it even more disappointing. Just before Subaru showed the BRZ to the world, they said that the car will have less than 300bhp. But eventually it was offered with the same e
