FT-86 II Concept: Behind the Scenes With Toyota’s New Sports Car [Gallery and Video]

After unveiling the FT-86 II Concept at the Geneva Auto Show at the start of the month, Toyota has just released an extensive selection of photos, and even a video, from a “behind the scenes” photo shoot with the car.

The photos give a better look at the rear-drive sports car, with the usually poor auto show lighting (combined with the fact that it was a black car on a white background) made getting decent pics in Geneva difficult.

No official details are yet available, but the car is expected to be powered by a 4-cylinder boxer engine making around 200-hp. The design of this second concept is also said to be much closer to the production version that will debut this Fall at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

    Awesome car. One of the first American Jet Fighters with serious threat capabilities occured in the Korean War. It was the F-86. This F-86II
    [F(Toyota)-86(the second)] has some design Q’s of it insiration. Check the front air dam for example. If you could bring both sides of the front air “Intake” together you would have the F-86 signature intake. That was a fast plane, I hope this car lives up to it’s namesake.

    this is an awesome car, i love the way it look very agresive, in fact i saw it on the street the other day and i dont know why if its not been release…. i know that thr onky i saw was this one in white color…. but there is a great disappointment that ive learn anout toyota…… I DONT LIKE THE FACT THAT TOYOTA IS MORE WORRY ABOUT LOOKS, THRN PERFOMANCE. this car is a beast, but 200hp???? is not enought for a car like this. toyota keep using the same engines on cars. 1.8 on corollas s models??? 2.4 on corollas XRS???? 2.4 and 2.5 on scion???? yea does engines must be big, but perfomance wise, its wack, 167 and 180hp its very slow. i have a scion and 167hp is a disappointment. honda civic has a better perfomance to 207hp STOCK….. this is a shame.

    If it’s got more power then no one can afford it. A Lotus Elise doesn’t make 200-hp and it’s an AMAZING machine.

    Just look at your tC. It’s MUCH cheaper than the Civic Si and performs like it too.

    STILL hoping the engineers ditch the subaru engine.
