Toyota 86

Two weeks ago, we reported here that Toyota Motor Philippines already had an actual unit of the 86 sports coupe by showing you a photo posted by a TMP employee on his Facebook wall. Well, you can actually see that very unit in the metal now--one month before the official launch of the car in our market.

This weekend, TMP is driving the car through select streets in Metro Manila to give the public a glimpse of the much-awaited coupe. The carmaker calls this marketing stunt the "86 Sightings Motorcade." Below is the list of the exact routes of the motorcade from May 25 to 27, as well as the exact times the car will pass through specific streets.

But before you check the list, here's one more thing. Toyota wants you to take a photo of the car when you spot it. Then e-mail the photo to us at The deadline for submission of photos is May 28, Monday. Senders of the three (3) best photos get a camera bag from Toyota.


Now, here's the Toyota 86 route schedule:
