Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2011

Many of you folks seen the brand new Toyota FT-86 II Concept this month, at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, and we have to admit that the car made quite a buzz. According to Toyota, the new design is a direct response to the feedback received from its fans and it appears that this time the Japanese manufacturer did it, and created e very very beautiful car.

But, now that doors of the Geneva Motor Show are closed, it appears that Toyota had to take the final decision regarding the future of FT-86 sports car.

According to Japan’s Best Car magazine, the production version of the Toyota FT-86 will arrive by the end of the year, at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show in December. Still, nobody knows what will be the total output delivered by this car, but we do know that the FT-86 will be powered by a 2.0-liter petrol unit and mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

According to Toyota, this engine will deliver a lively, accessible performance and enhanced driving pleasure. Regarding the design, the new car will be very close to the FT-86 II Concept, which is inspired by the great Toyota cars of the past, starting with the legendary 2000 GT in the 1960s.

The Toyota FT-86 Concept has a measurement of 4,160mm length x 1,760mm width x 1,260mm height and a 2,570mm wheelbase, making it feel compact. This enables the driver to control the vehicle without difficulty even as it can accommodate four passengers. Aside from being light and having a low gravitational center, the Toyota FT-86 Concept takes pride in its 6-speed manual transmission, ADVICS brakes and handling of a race car.

The stylish Toyota FT-86 Concept has a highly-refined body with functional utility that easily captures the heart. It was created by Toyota Europe Design Development or ED2, which established body lines that consider both aerodynamics and low center of gravity. It has a distinctive interior with a white and gray-based instrument panel, gauges that have red neon lights as well as digital displays plus a navigation system. Furthermore, a zipper that calls to mind a picture of interior lapping with the minimum covering of an extremely refined body offers an eye-catching display. In designing a vehicle, it is essential to also consider the driver’s enjoyment.

The Toyota FT-86 Concept is a vehicle that is neither electric nor hybrid but rather, it is a sports model equipped with a gasoline engine made to cope with the demands of new generation automobiles. This must-see concept car expresses the desire of TMC to come up with a Toyota sports car once more.

A Small FR Sports Concept Car with Environmental Performance Combined With Pleasurable Driving

TMC aims to develop the ultimate in earth-friendly automobile focused on a fusion of technologies without foregoing the appeal of cars and the pleasure of driving.

For the past many years, there has been an increasing need for vehicles that take global warming as well as other environmental concerns into consideration and at the same time, there has been a problem of only a few new sports cars that boost the heart rate. Now is the right time to develop the next generation of sports cars. As a solution to this need, TMC has created the Toyota FT-86 Concept, a sports car powered by a horizontally opposed, naturally-aspirated, 4-cylinder, 2,000 cc gasoline engine that gives the pleasure of owning and driving a car.

"Future Toyota 86 Concept", as the name denotes, is the latest Toyota FT-86 Concept in a flash red finish that will be presented at the 2009 Motor Show in Tokyo. This is a compact, rear-wheel drive sports car that delivers speed and the joy of driving that provide cars with both appeal and environmental performance.
