Toyota's new FT-86 Concept (In The Flesh)Originally Posted by autoblog.com
So, what do you think about this? I think it is going to be an absolute failure. Too heavy, too slow, too expensive. FAIL.

I think it looks alright but not in love with it. Denfinatly not what I would expect being inspired by the AE86, but I think the price tag will make it fail.
Not sure why they would axe the MR-2 only to start development on this. Seems like the MR-2 atleast had a better niche market to fill.

When they say inspired by, they usually mean that style of car. A low weight sports coupe. They didnt say: "This is the new AE86". We all just need to wait and see what Toyota does with this. For all we know, it could be a successful, low cost sports coupe, that can in fact be comparable to the AE86. We needn't be so hasty to jump to conclusions.-'83 P-type 5M-GE

Fail! And. Why is it based on the corolla when the supra was the benchmark of all toyota's back then? They need to ask the enthusiast ... Us at cs.com

Well, I think I'm going to have to agree. I don't think pricing NORTH of the 20's is a tribute to AE anything but that's me and as Billy said, heavy and large? Does not equal exciting. If you are going to make something north of 20's then you are in G37 land. It also looks like the Genisis would kick it's ass...Charles "Cee-Jay" Hughes

I'm just happy they are trying. Although I do wish they'd change the front bumper and dump the boxer 4. The rear 3/4 shots actually look pretty decent.

I like it. I doubt they are trying to actually reproduce an 80s Corolla.
All cars are heavy now....so if its lighter than the Genesis etc. we may have a winner. I do like the styling (assuming it stays as aggressive)....shows Toyota has some balls again.
