There’s also a good chance the Toyota GR 86 will feature in Gran Turismo 7 on PlayStation 5, but you’ll have to wait a little longer as the game has been delayed until 2022. Polyphony Digital, the developer of Gran Turismo, has a close relationship with Toyota, so it isn’t surprising to see the GR 86 make its racing game debut in Gran Turismo Sport. The Toyota GR Supra also made its virtual racing debut in Gran Turismo Sport at a time when Toyota cars were conspicuously absent in other racing game franchises like Forza Horizon and Need for Speed.
In real life, the Toyota GR 86 is powered by a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated Boxer engine producing 231 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission or an optional six-speed automatic. Long live the affordable, rear-wheel-drive sports coupe.
