Toyota GT86 Set for March Debut in China
Well, now people will start to talk, because Toyota has announced that it will begin selling its nimble little sportscar in the PRC, starting in March. They got the first glimpse of the GT86, in the metal, at the Beijing Auto Show, which took place last year in April, and following the venue, it was paraded around all the major Chinese motor shows, until the end of the year.
The 200 hp boxer engine-powered coupe is set to cost around 300,000 yuan or €37,000.
