Toyota GR86 waiting list: your questions answered

Toyota GR86 waiting list

The new Toyota GR86 has been designed first and foremost to be a driver’s car: a rear-wheel drive coupe for the purists. It’s gained rave reviews in the UK press and, unsurprisingly, many people signed up to the waiting list for the Toyota GR86.

Further to the UK securing limited allocation for 2023, if you’re one of the customers who put their name down and want to know where you stand, we have answered some commonly asked questions below.

Can I buy a Toyota GR86?

Due to high demand and limited availability, GR86 is exclusively available to buy through personal email invitation and only online. It will only be offered to those on the original waiting list. Your local Toyota centre can support you through the two-step process of requesting to reserve online then, once validated, guide you through the purchase of your GR86 should you require any assistance. Finance and part exchange is included in the online purchase process. Insurance and accessories will be available through your selected handover Centre.

I signed up to the Toyota GR86 waiting list last year, will I be given first choice in placing my order? 

Customers at the top of the waiting list will receive a personal email inviting them to request to reserve their desired specification. Customers will be contacted on a first come, first served basis, in the order that they first joined the waiting list. As part of the process, customers will be required to make a £1,000 card payment, which is fully refundable if required. Payment at request to reserve stage is not a confirmed order.

What is the UK delivery date for my GR86?  

All Toyota GR86 in the UK will be registered and delivered to customers before the end of 2023. 

Will the manual GR86 come with parking sensors as standard?  

Regretfully, no. The parking sensors do not come as standard on the manual, only on the automatic. However, parking sensors can be purchased and fitted separately through your Toyota handover centre. 

Can I buy a rear spoiler for my GR86?

The Toyota GR86 is already available with a ‘duckbill’ spoiler. If you would like to make your GR86 look even more purposeful, there is a GR86 rear spoiler available to order.

Any accessories ordered can only be fitted once your GR86 has been fully taxed and registered with the DVLA.

  1. I finalised my order at the start of October and have gotten the notification that the car has left the factory. Is there any word on how long it can take for the car to arrive in the UK once it has been built ?
