The Toyota FT-86 was one of the concept vehicles which wowed the crowds at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show. Apparently Toyota don't want people to call it the FT-eighty-six. They'd prefer it if you called it the FT-hachi roku (eight-six in Japanese).

The FT-86 is a progression of the Toyota FT-HS concept from 2007, and both cars share a number of similar features including a sloping roofline, deeply sculpted style line sweeping up under the door, and slit-like headlights.

The original concept was seen by many as the spiritual successor to the popular Toyota Supra, and while the FT-86 is the nearly-production-ready model which could be seen as the MkV Supra, Toyota say the car was actually inspired by the Toyota AE86 Corolla.

Powering the Toyota FT-86 is a Subaru-sourced 2.0 litre flat-four cylinder engine mounted low down in the chassis to improve handling. This boxer Subaru unit should be more than capable of handling significant power upgrades and modifications. Thankfully Toyota have retained the RWD layout and given the car a six-speed manual gearbox.

In order to improve both the FT-86's straight-line performance and handling, Toyota have kept the weight to a minimum - this also has the effect of helping to reduce fuel consumption.

The interior of the Toyota FT-86 features a 2+2 seating layout. Up front area pair of deeply bolstered sports seats with a thin backrest to maximize interior space. The dashboard features an unusual leather clad finish which hides features like the CD/DVD player. The instrument cluster has a futuristic and unconventional layout with a central display for the main driving information, and smaller displays at either edge of the panel for information related to the climate control and entertainment systems.
