Toyota promised a “lighter, faster and sportier” FT-86 II Concept would debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Is that true? Maybe. No one at Toyota was talking about it so it’s hard to say. Instead the brand’s press conference focused on its continued push of hybrid technologies.
What we can tell you (and what you can see for yourself from the selection of photos) is that the FT-86 II Concept now has a shiny new burn orange paint job. New bodywork? Nope… just the same old FT-86 II Concept from Geneva. But there is something more… there behind the tires. For the first time (to our knowledge) the FT-86 is sporting a set of Brembo brakes, which is certainly good news for driving enthusiasts who are eager to get behind the wheel of this car.
When it finally does debut in production ford at the Tokyo Auto Show, look for a direct-injection 4-cylinder boxer engine with around 200-hp going to the rear wheels with a standard limited slip differential. In the mean time, check out the extensive gallery of photos below.
