If you're anything like me, you just slogged through a freezing-ass winter, and a drive in a convertible on a sunny afternoon sounds extremely appealing right now. That's why I dig this video of the droptop FT-86 in action.
The Toyota GT-86 or Scion FRS as it will be known over here, is the lightweight driver's car that proves Toyota can build a car that avoids the beige. Amidst concerns from some regarding the car's 200 horsepower output it appears someone has already devised a perfect way to put concerns about power in the car to rest.
Yesterday we told you that the highly anticipated Toyota FT-86 concept will be called the GT 86 when it debuts at the Tokyo Motor Show next week. Today we can tell you something else about the GT 86—it looks fantastic on the track.
The Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 gets talked about as a Mustang Killer and competition for the Hyundai Genesis and other muscle cars. It really isn't, although maybe the Subaru BRZ will be. But new specs from FT86club make it clear this car will actually compete directly with the Mazda Miata/MX-5, even if it's never…
It appears that images of the Toyota FT-86 — or, as we'll be calling it here in the United States, the Scion FR-S — the car the super number one best automaker from the land of the rising sun claims is the spiritual successor to the AE86, have again leaked from the sieve known as Japanese buff books.
Would coverage of a modern motor show be complete without Toyota’s ever tantalizing FT-86? Impossible. Here, then, is the car in its latest state as a FT-86 II — colored red. It’s pretty and, of course, it’s still not real.
Strange to think that the two-seat Rorschach-wrapped Subieyota/Toyobaru crossbreed may be the most anticipated sports car in the world right now, whether in Toyota FT-86 or Subaru FR-S guise. Here it takes a Nürburgring shakedown via the FT86club.com spy cameras, with the boxer engine in full wail mode.
We just saw the second version of Toyota's FT-86 concept, conveniently dubbed the "Toyota FT-86 II Concept" — and here's the live photos of the new Toyobaru.
Toyota released this teaser of the new Toyota FT-86 II, a near-production version of the Toyota FT-86 RWD sports car with a less aggressive grille. The "II" makes us think the actual Toyota FT-86 will have a non-alphanumeric name.
The upcoming rear-wheel-drive Toyota FT-86 was developed in collaboration with Subaru, and it's been said all along the car would sport a 2.0-liter flat-four. We guess if this purported FT-86 logo is accurate, doubters should put those worries to rest.
The Toyota FT-86 may not be the vehicle to save Toyota from itself, as sources report the vehicle will be branded in the U.S. as the Scion FR-S, cost $25,000, and get a boring redesign. But wait, it's worse!
