Toyota 86 Sports Car Reincarnation of AE86

Nov. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Sports car enthusiasts review Toyota Motor Corp.'s 86, which derives its name from its previous incarnation, the AE86 Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno released in 1983. The 86 gets its name for the domestic market from a Japanese "manga" comic book titled "Initial D," where the main character, a son of a tofu shop, is a driver of the AE86. It was co-developed with Subaru-brand owner Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (Source: Bloomberg)
