Prospective buyers of the Toyota 86 who were understandably miffed when Toyota Motor Philippines revealed that only 77 units would reach the market this year can breathe easy now. Perhaps seeing how fast all 77 units had been snapped up even before the 86 was launched, Toyota has increased the Philippine market's allotment of the 86 to 200 units.
No less than Toyota Motor Philippines president Michinobu Sugata made the announcement during TMP's presentation of the 86 Aero and 86 TRD to the attendees of the 4th Philippine International Motor Show's opening yesterday.
"At Toyota, everything starts and ends with our customers," said Sugata. "The 86 and other models on display are a testament to our commitment in creating fun-to-drive vehicles for all our customers--without sacrificing the quality and value for money that Toyota is renowned for. In doing this, we would like to bring the fun factor to everyday driving experience."
Time to go to your nearest Toyota dealership to make a down payment on the 86 then.
