Toyota FT-86 II Concept Moves Closer to Production

Press and News Subaru Toyota

Toyota FT-86 II ConceptA new concept  of the Toyota FT-86 debuted at the Geneva Motor. The Toyota FT-86 II concept sports coupe, after making its original debut at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show with the FT-86 concept, seems to be moving closer to an actual production model.

Little information and specs have been released about the redesigned FT-86 II concept. However, we do know that it will use a 2.0-liter, four cylinder boxer engine with power driving the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

A few major differences between the original FT-86 concept version and the latest FT-86 II concept are the larger rear window and front grille, a new front bumper with a string of LED daytime running lights, and a different rear bumper with larger dual tail pipes.

The new Toyota FT-86 II concept features very compact dimensions. It is 4,235mm long, 1,795mm wide, and just 1,270mm high. Its design language is called “Functional Beauty” and its bold, sweeping form has been generated entirely through the constraints of function and aerodynamics developed from F1 technology.

Toyota may have had to bring out two concepts to get the design just right, but after being postponed more times than we would like, sales for the Toyota FT-86 will begin in Europe in 2012. Prices will start from around $25,000.

Subaru has plans to build their own version of the FT-86, a car that will share the same technology and engines, but will feature a different design. The advantage of the version built by Subaru is that the STI version is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-4 engine with an output of about 300 HP.
