The GR86 name strikes me as odd since Gazoo Racing isn't exactly a well-known name to many people, even to many car enthusiasts who may not necessarily be Toyota enthusiasts. And keep in mind that although us enthusiasts are the ones most interested in this car, the first/current gen twins sold quite well to teens/college kids/"first car" type people who got the car because it looks nice, is relatively cheap, and is slow enough for their parents to not worry about them wrapping it around a pole plenty of "regular" people drive these things, maybe even more so than true enthusiasts, and I feel renaming it the GR86 may just cause even more confusion. "Gazoo Racing? What's that? Oh. Cool, I guess."

What's the difference in that or "GT-86"? Toyota eventually dropped "GT"; but, the average customer just doesn't care. "GT", "GR", I seriously doubt many will even ponder.
