Chasing Colorado’s best driving road in the Toyota GR86

Chasing Colorado's best driving road in the Toyota GR86

Finding that perfect patch of asphalt, at least in the state of Colorado, required a suitable car. Many of Colorado’s “good” roads are now dominated by tourists, and we needed something that would be some sort of “Goldilocks car.” A car comfortable enough to enjoy the view, yet fast and engaging enough to carry miles of asphalt with ease. Fortunately, Toyota’s best sports car, the GR86, is the perfect candidate.

It might drive you crazy in the comments, but this really is the best sports car Toyota makes. On a point-by-point scale, the GR86 simply makes fewer mistakes than the Supra, while being cheaper, just as practical and more engaging (except for the new manual Supra, which no one has driven yet).

Continue. Keys in hand and floor plans sifting through, we narrowed our selection down to two candidates. The first unfortunately has to remain nameless at the request of crowds of local car enthusiasts. This is one of those “best kept secret” deals. But if you know the road between Evergreen and Idaho Springs over the mountains, you’ll know the road we drove. In the other corner we have the scenic Peak to Peak side road, arguably Colorado’s most scenic drive.
