2023 Toyota GR-86 Special Edition Prototype Model in Solar Shift

With Toyota’s sports car lineup expanding, they are celebrating by releasing a limited edition of the GR86 for 2023. The 2023 Toyota GR86 Special Edition will be built on the second-gen GR86, which has been significantly upgraded from its predecessor. You can expect a unique design and plenty of oomph on the Tampa roads that will definitely put a spotlight on you no matter where you’re headed. Find out some of the highlights in the following 2023 Toyota GR86 preview! 


An Energetic Icon

Given that the Toyota GR86 Special Edition is a limited edition, it will have an exclusive Solar Shift exterior color. This bright orange shade matches the boldness and the vibrancy of this model, so even when you’re stuck in traffic on a busy afternoon in Lakeland, your sports car can still be easily spotted among the crowd. 

To accentuate the distinct profile, there are black graphics, a matte black cat-back exhaust, and a matte black duckbill rear spoiler. Together, this Special Edition’s signature signoff can not only be seen but can also be heard! While you’ll notice the exterior design features first, you can’t forget about the ultrasuede/leather-trimmed interior with GR special edition badge that makes this Toyota GR86 the 2023 limited edition. 

Hear this Sports Car Roar

The iconic look is breathing life into your every drive in St. Pete, but that’s just leading up to the real deal of the 2023 Toyota GR86– the showstopping performance. Elevating the first-gen GR86, this sports car is equipped with a new 2.4L engine that produces nearly 11% more horsepower and 18 more torque than the previous 2.0L engine. 

No matter what road conditions you’re driving this bad boy in, you will have more control over the path ahead of you. In addition to the next-level engine and responsiveness, you will hear a powerful growl coming from the exhaust system’s larger center pipe as well as an augmented engine sound in the cabin from an Active Sound Control system. Imagine how it is like behind the wheels with the following Special Edition specs:

  • 228 hp
  • 184 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.4L 4-cylinder naturally aspirated boxer powertrain
  • 6-speed manual or automatic transmission
  • RWD drivetrain
