The Toyota GT 86 hasn't been living up to sales expectations but the company isn't quite ready to throw in the towel.

In an interview with Motoring, Toyota Motor Europe Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing confirmed the company is "pretty serious about keeping the GT 86 pure and keeping a car like that in our lineup." Karl Schlicht went on to say the company wants to keep fun cars in their portfolio as dropping them would hurt the company's image in the long run.

When pushed for more details, Schlicht confirmed plans for a second-generation GT 86 but said the current model has to go through a "normal lifecycle" first.
