Tokyo Auto Salon 2010: G’s Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept
Share this Article

Toyota has recently announced its G Sports conversion car series that will be sold through Toyota-brand dealers in Japan throughout 2010. These G’s series vehicles are designed for owners interested in having a unique vehicle and several of them took center stage at Toyota’s booth at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon. We have heard plenty about Toyota’s FT-86 and the company’s G’s version stole the show. Dozens gathered around the car during exclusive media hours in order to see it up close and personal. Plenty of carbon fiber accents can be seen on this extremely stylish and polished design, making this FT-86 Concept even more impressive than the original.

Along with the standard carbon fiber goodies, there’s a vented carbon fiber hood and a massive rear spoiler. We also noticed an aggressive new exhaust setup.

With this concept Toyota continues to build interest in the FT-86, which is believed will head to production shortly. The car is rumored to be powered by a 2.0-liter Subaru boxer engine with Toyota heads, delivering around 200-hp. Toyota is hoping this model will be a hit with enthusiasts, tuners and help get a younger demographic into its showrooms.

    Looks great, but only 200 hp. Give me a 370Z instead. FAIL~!

    Isn’t this like a AE86 revival? (An affordable FR sports car)
    The AE86 Trueno; now that’s a fantastic car! Hats off to Toyota!

  • Justin

    Very nice looking but again they I believe are using the old wrx setup and making 24 less hp that is a lot of FAIL

  • Mike

    A car like that with only a 2.0L engine and 200hp? What’s Toyota thinking??? Next thing you know it’ll be FWD as well. Epic Fail. Just bring back the Supra and be done with it!

    if you look and the picture with the low close up on the front bumper… you’ll notice a intercooler! 200hp my butt with the g sport version.

    200 hp out of the box is a very smart move. They could create an extremely capable platform to tune. IOW a good STARTING point. The cost will be much lower then a brand new z reflecting the power of course, but come now, you wouldn’t buy a cheaper car and spend the rest of the money you would have spent on solid tires/fuel/track time? I would. And I’m not the only one. If you can afford one, buy your z. I’ll be looking for the power to weight ratio and price on the new car and I doubt the toyota will be heaviest.

    And like he said ^ add boost or turn up the boost if the number is all that bothers you. Sure looks like an intercooler and plenty of direct air to it.
