The second-generation Soarer that came out in January 1986 was styled to keep the overall impression of the previous model, while refining the details to further enhance the high-quality image. The canopy used curved glass for all windows, and their surfaces were made flush with the body. The virtual image display technology called the "space vision meter" was adopted for the first time in the world, making it easier for the driver to read the instrument panel while driving, as the virtual image was projected at a distance to minimize the accommodation of the eye. The engine lineup consisted of a turbocharged 3-liter inline 6-cylinder DOHC 24-valve unit that produced a net output of 230 PS (7M-GTEU), and three 2-liter engines including a twin-turbo unit. The suspension employed a 4-wheel double wishbone arrangement, to which the electronically controlled TEMS system and the air suspension system (for 3.0GT Limited) could be added. In April 1989, the Aero Cabin 2-seater was made available, featuring a power retractable roof and rear windshield and with production volume limited to 500 units.
