Dubai Motor Show Teases Toyota GT-86 Sedan with Amateur Photoshop, Which Then Vanishes…

All it takes is an amateur photoshop (we wouldn’t be surprised if the above rendering was actually made with MS Paint…) and a Facebook posting for some to come out with grabby titles containing the words “official” and “confirmed”.

Case in point, the Facebook page for the Dubai International Motor Show that posted the photo you see along with the claim that the Toyota GT86 Sports Sedan will have its “regional unveil” at the event held from November 5 to 9.

Needless to say, there’s some BS going on here beginning with the photo that’s a badly done digital render of the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show Toyota FT-86 Concept and continues with the “regional unveil”, which would mean that the car has already made its world premiere somewhere else…

Funny thing is that, the post disappeared altogether today from the event’s FB page.

Like we said in another posting about the same issue regarding a purportedly insider report on the Toyota GT 86 / Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ sedan, while the Japanese automaker might be considering such a model down the line, one should always question these reports and separate those that are made for grabbing headlines and clicks by using fictional information (purposely or not), from those that are based on cold, hard facts.
