Video Leak: Toyota FT-86, Honda CR-Z And More From 2009 Tokyo Motor Show

Follow Nelson

When it comes to car shows, there are leaks and then there are leaks. Today a Japanese-language video of most of the cars and concepts of the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show has leaked online, including the first live footage of the Toyota FT-86 and Honda's CR-Z concept.

This genie isn't likely to get stuffed back in the bottle. Despite advertising itself as a promotional video for the "41th Motorshow," it succeeds thoroughly in spoiling the surprise of the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show live reveals of the cars in question.

Not that we don't enjoy the sneak peek--the FT-86 in particular looks even better in the glare and basic pan shots of the characteristically car-show videography.

The CR-Z Concept footage doesn't reveal much beyond the existing press shots, but live images show the boot-up process of the Nissan LEAF EV and its innovative gauge cluster, plus the gas-cap-like front charging port.

Other concepts revealed include the Mitsubishi PX-MiEV electric crossover concept and Mazda's updated Kiyora Concept.

Catch our previous coverage for the full details on the FT-86 Concept, its Subaru counterpart and their likely production-car end products.

  1. wow those look quite futuristic. I think the FT-86 is supposedly the AE86 replacement or I could be wrong.

  2. The video says the CR-Z is due for release in February 2010 and that the car on show must be close to production spec.
    There are some more detailed videos at the following link. The page is in Japanese but you can click on the pics for video.

  3. is it just me or does the ft86 look like toyota took the fron half of an RX8 and welded it to the back of a 1 series?

  4. That would be just you.

  5. A light, four-cylinder, small, rear-drive sports coupe is exactly the opposite of what Lexus stands for at this point. It's alien to today's Toyota, also, but at least Toyota has a long history with this sort of car.
