Toyota 86 chief engineer Tatsuya Tada has revealed the company is considering an entry-level sports car to slot below the 86.

Speaking to CarAdvice, Tada said both he and Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda want a three sports car lineup but neither the entry-level model or the Supra successor have been approved for production.

Despite this, Tada said the model would ride on an all-new rear-wheel drive platform and could be co-developed with another automaker.

When asked about the price pressures an entry-level sports car would face, Tada said the company has "learnt a lot from [the] 86 project and Toyota has much experience in terms of technology and development in the way we develop vehicles efficiently and cost effectively."
