The Toyota Corolla GT-S (AE86) (also known as Hachi-Roku) is a sport compact produced for the North American market from 1983 to 1987.

The Toyota AE86 was produced alongside a non-pop up headlight variant, the Corolla Levin. The AE86 was also sold in Japan as the Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT Apex, albeit with slightly different specifications.

The Corolla GT-S is based on a light RWD platform and powered by a '4A-GE' entitled DOHC engine with 119bhp.

The AE86's affordability and driving traits made it a popular choice in motorsports and a favourite by car enthusiasts. In 2012, a modern reinterpretation of the AE86 was introduced which was jointly developed by Toyota and Subaru.

Games

Need for Speed: Carbon

The Toyota Corolla GT-S appears as a tier 2 Tuner class car in the EA Downloader release of Need for Speed: Carbon. It cannot be purchased in the career mode nor modified by the player and can only be selected in Quick Race mode with stock appearance in white and as a visually modified variant in red.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Toyota Corolla GT-S appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 1 vehicle with a $16,000 price tag.

Given its light chassis and rear-wheel drive layout, the Corolla GT-S has notable handling characteristics: It responds quickly to steering inputs by the player and rarely loses grip. This makes the GT-S particularly useful in difficult race tracks and drift events as its handling makes long and smooth drifts possible.

The GT-S has moderate acceleration in consequence of a small four-cylinder engine, which delivers a low top speed and underwhelming performance when driving uphill but can be greatly improved with upgrades.

Players will find the GT-S to be most useful in Drift and Grip. It also fares well in Wheelie Competitions due to its low weight.

Need for Speed: Nitro

The Corolla GT-S appears in Need for Speed: Nitro as a class C vehicle and costs $55,000. It is rated 1 in speed, 2 in both acceleration and handling, and 3 in both drifting and strength.

The Toyota Corolla GT-S was made available in Need for Speed: World on May 14, 2010 during the fourth closed beta session as a tier 1 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a D class car.

The Corolla GT-S is slower than any other tier 1 starter car in terms of power. However, this trait was compensated with a superior handling. it has a good acceleration and handling because of a low weight. Compared to more expensive D class cars, its acceleration might be lacking.

Players might find the Corolla GT-S to be a good choice for swapping their E class vehicle with a D class one. Similar to the Nissan Silvia (S15), it also fares well in higher classes, as long as upgrades are regularly applied. It is less useful in pursuits events due to its small chassis, although lower heat level events can be completed successfully.
