AE86 is a drifter's dream, mainly because it has just the adequate amount of power to have controllable drifts. Have driven one in US. However welcome this news maybe, we indians will never get it!

Relaunching the Hachiroku? Wow that would be absolutely awesome provided Toyota really does it.

A RWD cheap Japanese car? Now thats something we havent seen in a long time. Just what the Corolla would need to get back into the enthusiast books.

Get it on, Toyota!

The return of the RWD hatches, finally.

Won't be surprised if Mazda "relaunch" their RX-7.
