Will the Supra supercede the 86?

Recommended Posts

I was expecting the new Supra to have larger dimensions then the 86 but it appears that they are somewhat similar. At that time, this then gave me the thought about whether the 86 would be phased out particularly if in 2020, the Supra had the option of a 4 cylinder engine in Australia. I also understand that 86 sales have slowed in comparison to previous years

Just today, I came across the following Autoblog

Interested to hear your crystal ball gazing thoughts. Personally, I would love to see Toyota Australia grow their No.1 position in Australia and derive more sales in the non-SUV market particularly at the expense of those manufacturers who need to rethink their product quality.

Would be great in a way if they discontinued the hachi as the val on mine would start going up :) The Supra has always been a str8 six & looks to continue that way, for how long who knows. The new Supra isn't a real Toyota & it's automatic :/ Appears a lovely car tho.
