Default Toyota FT-86 - Pics and Specs Leaked. EDIT : Now officially revealed!

Pictures and specifications of the Toyota FT-86 has leaked ahead of its Tokyo Motor Show unveil
Source
Quote:
A purported training manual has revealed the Toyota FT-86's specifications ahead of its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show.
According to the document, the coupe will have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 200 PS (147 kW / 197 hp) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque. This doesn't sound overly impressive, but the car only weighs between 1,210 kg (2,668 lbs) and 1,250 kg (2,756 lbs).
Besides the performance specifications, we're starting to learn more about the vehicle's standard equipment. There will reportedly be two variants and the premium model is slated to feature a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-speaker audio system, a limited slip differential and 17-inch alloy wheels.

I don't think its based on LF-A, maybe they are using the LF-A genes to market this one, like the SLK got the SLR nose (or the current SLK got the SLS nose) .

This either should compete with the 370Z likes or if anything better, the Godzilla, that's a tall order though.

But as they pulled off the LF-A neatly, a Zilla-Killa can't be ruled out

From what i have seen, the specs looks more like celica successor than supra.

this will be priced a little above scion tc. so expect it to be around $22k-$25k. 370z is more like $35k. Also it will be branded as Scion and not Toyota. In current SEMA, it is shown as Scion FT-86 concept.

I'm eagerly waiting to see it in the flesh.
In the US, I hope they don't dress the Scion version with a tacky, pimped out body-kit.

At 200bhp it won't be a Supra successor for sure.

I do wish Subaru's version would have stuck to AWD.

The car that am lusting after to drive.
The successor to the 'hachiroku' Corolla AE86!!!, maybe will get a chance to Td it in my next trip to Riyadh.
And it's not a successor to Supra guys and also the Subaru version doesn't feature AWD,atleast not during launch.
but my dream machine or what, the steering wheel and instrument cluster are a disappointment from the concept model. The wheel looks almost like that of the 370Z, the Etios V steering looks far better than this.
But nevertheless can't wait to see the FT 86 launch.

does look like the LFA to me. Considering the sheer amount of money they spent developing that car, it could just be another way to reap some of that back.

Nope dudes, these are both are highly different cars.
One being a return towards affordable basic FTD car and the other being a carbon fibre masterpiece!!!
C'mon a sports car platform that can hold both a 4 pot and a v10?? That too the FT 86 is a front engine RWD car while the LF-A is rear mid engine one.

Here are some pictures of what looks like the production version (although the number-plate does say it's a concept, it's pretty much the production version, IMO) of the Toyota FT-86, followed by some pictures of what it looked like during the concept-stage not too long ago.

The pre-production FT-86. I must say, I'm a little disappointed that it doesn't look like this.

Spotting the difference isn't too hard, really.

The FT-86 is powered by a 2 liter 4-pot that makes around 200 horses. Toyota has drawn inspiration from the Lexus LF-A's design, and it's quite evident by the taut and muscular lines and that 'pissed-off' face.

Umm, nope. The LF-A is mid-engined alright. But it is front-mid engined. Much like the McLaren Mercedes SLR.

Lexus LFA - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If it is launched at 25 - 30 lacs in india it would for sure churn up the market. it should see at least 20 units a month being sold.

wishful thinking mate.

The current brand positioning of Toyota doesnt allow them to have a 2 door launched here. Imagine rubbing your shoulders with Innova taxi guys at the service station.

Maybe when Toyota launches "Lexus" In india, they could offer this product as thier entry model into the Lexus family.

30 lacs for being a part of the Lexus family seems lucrative to me and hopefully to many others out there. The only problem is the practicality of this car for everyday use.

Too much design for a 200 BHP car

Look like a Veyron, drive like a Camry!
