We breathed a sigh of relief when the Toyota 86 (now badged as the GR 86) and Subaru BRZ were revived for a new generation after rumors that both sports cars were being canned. Affordable rear-wheel drive sports cars are a rare breed these days, and the new Toyota GR 86 and Subaru BRZ improve on their predecessors in every way. Sure, there are more powerful sports cars, but the GR 86 and are BRZ are designed for pure driving fun thanks to their rear-wheel-drive setups, punchy powertrains, and lightweight construction.
To see how they stack up on a track, Japanese drift king Keiichi Tsuchiya recently took the new GR 86 and BRZ for a spin at the Sodegaura Forest Raceway in Japan.
