The new 2017 Toyota 86 is a rear-wheel drive sports car for people who want to drive in a "spirited fashion," according to the Fremont Motor Co.

The 86 is a front-engine car with 205 horsepower and is capable of traveling 134 miles per hour.

The car gets an estimated 24 miles per gallon combined highway and city driving on the manual version or 27 miles per gallon on the automatic.

The car was previously known as Scion FR-S. Toyota ended its Scion division over a year ago began to make this vehicle under the Toyota brand, a press release said. The 86 is a joint effort with Subaru; Subaru's version is called the BRZ. Both vehicles are similar, with minor differences in trim and headlights.

The Toyota 86 has two bucket seats in front. The Rear seats are tiny and potentially not comfortable for adults on long road trips. Cloth seats are standard for the 86, but leather heated seats are also available.

The 86 is larger than an MR2 but smaller than a Supra, according to the release. With real wheel-drive, this car is aimed at drivers who like to drift.
