Jeremy’s Car of the Year: Toyota GT86

You thought Jeremy would immediately pick the most expensive or most powerful car
here, didn’t you? Well, he didn’t… he picked one of the cheapest and least
powerful. But he had his reasons. The Toyota GT86 is a new way of looking at an
old problem: how to have fun in a reasonably priced car. Now, TG has a long
association with cheap thrills, but the GT86 tries very hard to re-educate a
generation of hot-hatch motorists on the joys of rear-wheel drive. And it succeeds,
by being exciting, relatively cheap and accessible to mere mortals. It’s good,
people. Be excited.

“I like the GT86 because it’s come barrelling into the bottom end of the marketplace
with a big dirty smile on its face and a suggestion in the way it stands that
it wants to have fun with your middle parts. It’s a car designed for one thing
only: fun.”
