History of the Toyota AE86 <- Full article


Few industries have experienced the wild competition and production level changes that have influenced the field of automobiles. Even more intensive are the innovations that spawned from Japanese car design teams and engineers.

The Toyota AE86 is a popular car that’s gained recognition in the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) community as well as the racing community. From its portrayal in popular culture to its performance in racing circuits and drift competitions, the AE86 has earned its rightful place as an automotive legend.

History of the Car

Even though the AE86 may technically be a Toyota Corolla, it is much more than that. This car is an icon of the Japanese automotive industry for more reasons than would be evident at first. While the Corolla has mostly drifted into a position where it is regularly regarded as the definitive mainstream vehicle, the AE86 encompasses brilliant engineering.

To understand why the AE86 is such an impressive vehicle, it’s essential to examine the current state of cars in comparison to the ones which were being sold at the time when it was developed. During the early 80s, cars like the AE86 were not as prevalent, and this was (surprisingly) due to their drivetrain layout and the implications it presented.
