Toyota GT 86 second generation in the making?

Toyota GT 86 second generation in the making?

When Toyota and Subaru joined forces for an affordable sports car, the Japanese carmaker had the upper hand in the deal. The deal was that Toyota could sell more cars than Subaru, which many predicted could be a deal breaker. However, it seems like the two Japanese carmakers won’t part so easily, and a source claims that the second-gen GT86 is in the making. 

The source mentions that they obtained a statement from Toyota’s Euro VP, Karl Schlicht, on the sidelines of the Paris motor show.

Schlicht said, “We are pretty serious about keeping the GT86 pure and keeping a car like that in our line-up. Because in the past we dropped cars like the Celicas and fun cars, and we don’t want to lose that again," he said, adding that “the GT86 as you know has been enthusiastically received by the motoring press, but the market's not huge around the world for those kind of cars and they also have a bit of a lifecycle.”

The GT 86 was launched in 2012 and going by usual product lifecycle, it still has a facelift due before its replacement. This puts the development of the next generation model in question, or is the company talking about an updated model? We shall wait for an official confirmation from the manufacturer.
