Toyota FT-86 Concept

Toyota FT-86 Concept

The internet has been waiting for this car for a long time. Seems like forever. When word got around that Toyota was partnering with Fuji Heavy (Subaru parent) to make a RWD sports coupe of some sort... it was a big deal.

I've been waiting for this car for a long time. And let's be honest here... Toyota has not disappointed. That is quite a beautiful design. So far this car is rumored to have a 2.0L boxer 4 cyl engine from Subaru and will be RWD. They have released some dimensions (shorter than my tC even!) and basic info but the rest is unknown so far. Believed to be priced somewhere just over $20k it could make for a hell of a fun car. Especially if you can bump up to the 265hp turbo WRX engine!

It should be quite obvious then at this point that I have officially added this to "the list" I've been making. One of the websites has reported that while this is a concept and will technically debut in Tokyo later this month, a production version should be shown some time next year with an actual release of later in 2011.

I may even print a copy of one of its pictures, go to my local Toyota dealer and ask when I can put a deposit on it.
