Toyota debuted its odd new 86-based GR HV Sports Concept today ahead of the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.

Interesting take on manually shifting with an automatic.
It actually seems quite logical by comparison to rotary dial shifters for instance.
I do wonder about long term reliability with parts of both a manual and an automatic. Imagine working on one of these 33 years later!

Its an interesting concept for sure, but I think the new Mazda Miata RF is cooler. I can see a sport roof GT86 coming out, but I don't know about the other aspects of this concept making it to production. But you can buy one of these right now...
