We took a ride around Eagles Canyon Raceway in Decatur, Texas, in the 2022 Toyota 86 with pro drifter Ken Gushi at the wheel. The latest 86 seemed to hit 62 mph quicker than Toyota's stated 6.1 seconds, and a 90-degree right turn into a 90-degree left made us appreciate the handling and suspension upgrades on the redesigned 86. After it was...

For a certain generation that grew up playing "Gran Turismo" on the Sony PlayStation, the R34-generation Nissan Skyline GT-R sold around the turn of the century is a hero car more desirable than anything wearing a prancing horse or raging bull on the hood.

First ride: 2022 Toyota 86 redesign rewards drivers

The 2022 Toyota 86 approaches the first turn at Eagles Canyon Raceway in Decatur, Texas, with a high-pitched wail. The straight shot from the starting block seemed to hit 62 mph quicker than Toyota’s quoted time of 6.1 seconds.
