More Images Of Toyota FT-86 Sports Car Leaked

Follow Viknesh

UPDATE: The latest image shows how the standard Toyota FT-86 sports car will look, minus the Modellista bodykit and accessories seen in the previous leaked images.

You'll note that the headlights are now devoid of the LED detailing seen in the previous shots, and the strangely shaped roof fin is also gone.

The image, which was uploaded to the FT86club forum, also gives us a better indication as to how the upcoming Scion FR-S, the version of the car to be sold in the U.S., will look.

ORIGINAL: Though it isn’t scheduled to be officially revealed until the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show in a month's time, alleged images of the production version of the Toyota FT-86 rear-wheel drive sports car have now surfaced online.

The leaked images reveal a design very similar to the one previewed on the myriad of FT-86 concept cars shown over the years, though there are some clear differences.

While the front of the car appears to have kept its gaping mouth look, the production version’s headlights aren’t as aggressive, while the side profile looks a lot smoother.

At the rear is where the biggest changes are apparent, with a new tail-lamp design, as well as a slightly milder diffuser and more conservative bootlid. Overall, however, the car still appears very aggressive and performance oriented.

As for the interior, we can clearly see a short throw shifter for the standard six-speed manual transmission, as well as a large, centrally mounted tacho, and racy bucket seats. There also appears to metal foot pedals though it’s unclear yet as to whether these will be standard features or options.

Importantly, the name of Toyota’s new sports car isn’t revealed although we do know that the automaker’s accessories division Modellista will be developing some new parts for the Japanese domestic market.

No powertrain specs have been revealed, though we do know the car will be coming with a naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine with a horizontally opposed ‘boxer’ design and displacement of 2.0-liters. Direct injection technology should see around 200 horsepower liberated. The car is also expected to have the lowest center of gravity of any volume produced model--about 450 mm in fact.

  1. Great, it looks like a Hyundai Genesis coupe now, and has less horsepower than the Genesis. No Thanks! Should of stayed true to the concept Toyota.

  2. Are you serious? Comparing a mediocre, unreliable and unnameable hyu#4~798ai to TOYOTA? Uhm... no thanks, you shouldn't even write. Learn about cars and then write.

  3. Hyundai genesis coupe is far from mediocre. Already has a cult following in the sport compact import world.

  4. It looks good but Toyota has drawn this out so long, I don't think anyone really cars anymore.

    I hope Nissan sees the light and brings back the 200SX. I've completely given up on Honda building anything remotely sporty.

  6. Honestly this car looks more Subaru ( BRZ ) - Hints or typical Subaru trademarks: 1. gold wheels 2. angular side mirrors 3. STI-derived steering wheel, instrument dials similar to Impreza..

  7. I have to say it looks nice, but I don't see it appealing to anyone over the age of 30. It's a boy-racer's car, which is exactly what it should be. Now bring on a new Supra to take on the Corvette and Mustang GT crowd.
