2024 Trueno Edition GR86

Until Toyota offers an officially licensed Initial D GR86, the brand-new Trueno Edition is the next best thing.

Not unlike the Hakone Edition offered a few years ago, the Trueno Edition GR86 is a limited-edition throwback intended to celebrate 40 years since the launch of the AE86 Corolla.

Whenever I see these announcements they always end up being Jap exclusives. I think i've only been surprised when it's come to Toyota though with the GR Corolla actually giving us the special edition of that car so maybe i'll end up being surprised again.

I was hoping to find a confirmation of "we are selling these in the U.S.," but it certainly seems like Toyota plans to sell these in the United States with how the press releases are worded. I'll be sure to offer updates as soon as I get them.

You know what be newsworthy?  Nissan announcing they might actually build a few base model, stick shift cars and you can get one.

I was waffling a bit on buying a Circuit GR Corolla, but I think the mounting bolt change for the battery ground might be enough to sway me!

I own a GR86 and have thought at times that it might need some kind of accent on the side.  But, those stripes on that white one just doesn't do it for me.
