Only a select number of Toyota dealerships in the country will sell the GR86
By now, you might have already read (and seen) the prices and variants of the all-new Toyota GR86. While the automaker has yet to officially launch it, we were able to get some information from a reliable source.
With that, we know that the all-new two-door sports car will start at PHP 2.328 million, will come with the same 2.4-liter flat-four as the BRZ, and will have special paint finishes that will might cost extra over the regular colors.
But if there was one more thing about the GR86 that we’re curious about, is the matter of whether Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) will sell it across all dealerships in the country. Since the 86 is now a Gazoo Racing (GR) product, it’s no longer just a regular model sold by the automaker.
According to a Toyota executive, only a total of 19 dealerships will be selling the brand new GR86. Like the GR Supra and GR Yaris models, the GR86 will only be available at GR Performance Dealerships. This means that if you’re looking to buy one in the not-so-distant future, you can only get one from the following locations.
But why did Toyota decide that only 19 dealerships will be able to sell the brand new GR86? Well, unlike your regular showrooms, GR Performance dealerships are the only ones to have the necessary tools and training to service and check on Gazoo Racing models. These include the aforementioned GR Supra, GR Yaris, and the soon-to-be-launched GR86.
If you’re already looking at reserving a unit or are curious to test drive one in the future, better take note of the GR Performance dealerships near you.
