We all remember the Toyota Corolla RWD AE86 coupe, which is a drifter’s dream car. It seems we are getting more and more confirmations of a joint venture between Toyota and Subaru making a come-back in this missing-link that Toyota as had for over a decade now.

A “Toyota Insider” has some new information for us revealing that this new car, code named 086A, will be lower and wider than the out-going Toyota Celica (2000-2006) with an “orthodox 2+2 coupe style and a silhouette resembling the Lexus LF-A“.  

A new rendering from 7TUNE reveals what this new coupe could look like. Now that I think about it, this looks similar to much older renderings that we use to speculate being the new Toyota Supra. Well, maybe Toyota has had this car up their sleeves for longer than we think.

Toyota/Subaru, according to the “Toyota Insider”, will still attempt to keep the price relatively low around the $25,000usd mark.

The stats for the 086A are as follows:
