Akio Toyoda presented the newest Toyota concept at the Tokyo Motor Show: the Toyota FT-86. The Corolla-based AE86 sports coupe of the '80s inspires it. The Toyota FT-86 concept was designed by Toyota's ED2 styling studio in France. The details of this car haven't been divulged, but we know this much: it's powered by a Subaru-derived 2.0-liter boxer four sending power to the rear wheels; it’s 163.78 inches long and 69.29 inches wide; it has a wheelbase of 101.18 inches.
The production of the Toyota FT-86 will start sometime in 2011, and the price will be around $20,000.
FT-86 Concept (world premiere) - The FT-86 ("86" pronounced "hachi roku"), a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car, provides driving joy and excitement.
* Compact design gives the driver greater control, while the body's lightness and low center of gravity allow racecar-like handling
* Both power and environmental performance provided by a 2-liter boxer engine and light body
* Flash Red body color contains a hint of blue; the interior expresses a modern feel with minimal coverage of the highly refined structural components evoking enthusiasm for cruising
