Dying to know what the production Toyota FT-86 will look like? Here’s the closest look yet.
These scanned images are from a Modellista brochure; Modellista being an in-house tuning arm of Toyota. That said, it’s not the production version that will debut at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, but a modified version of the car, sporting an aero kit and several other accessories.
By the looks of it, the car will stay close to the original concept, though the rend end seems to have changed more significantly. Inside, the brochure photos show what appears to be a high-grip seating surface with impressive red stitching on black seats. Other highlights include a push-button ignition and a redline of around 7500 rpm.
When it does debut at the Tokyo Auto Show in just over a month’s time, the car is expected to make roughly 200-hp from a direct-injection 4-cylinder boxer engine. More recent reports indicate that the FT-86 will have the lowest center of gravity of any production car and a curb weight of around 2,500 lbs.
