Since we designed the legendary 2000GT over 40 years ago, we have created sports cars that provide fun and pure driving pleasure and have enjoyed considerable motor racing success along the way.
Ever since the Sports 800 was introduced in 1965 we have been earning a reputation for creating beautifully balanced rear-wheel drive cars that don't just look the part, but they handle like a dream too.
Our sports cars have all been designed with an emphasis on raw sports driving excitement with great power-to-weight ratios and powerful performance. And they are very popular with professional drivers, both on the track and on the international rally circuit.
The Sports 800 was Toyota's first production sports car. After appearing as a prototype at the Tokyo Auto Show in 1962, it went into production in 1965.
The 2000GT, generally considered Japan's first 'supercar' was equipped with Toyota's first twin-cam engine and Japan's first four-wheel disc brake system.
The RA40 Celica series was launched in 1980.
The AE86 was introduced in 1983. It was powered by a fuel-injected, 4 cylinder twin-cam 1587cc 4A-GE engine, which delivered 130kW and is still a favourite with racers and rally drivers today.
The ST205 was the last GT-Four series machine. It put in plenty of performances to ensure the series would always be remembered as a big success on track.
The GT500 SUPRA was developed in 1994 to compete in the new GT500 class of the Japan Touring Car Championships. It scored four outright championship wins between 1997 and 2005.
In October 2009, the FT-86 concept was presented at the Tokyo Motor Show and strongly hinted at an exciting sports car to come.
A member of the Toyota 86 family of rear wheel drive, front engine sports cars - the FT-86G Concept Car, made its debut at the Australian International Motor Show in Sydney in October 2010.
FT86 II concept
In 2011, the penultimate concept - the FT86 II concept was shown at the Geneva Motor Show. Designed and built to bring back the sheer exhilaration and excitement of raw sports car driving, with the concept set to became a reality when the rear-wheel drive front-engine 86 is launched in 2012.
86 is an incredibly dynamic sports car. The better your driving skills, the more the car rewards you with the kind of goose-bump inducing excitement that sports cars are supposed to create.
