Default Toyota G Sport GS FT 86 in Tokyo Auto Show 2010






Introduced at Tokyo Auto Show, Toyota GS bodykit one issue for FT-86 is sold complete with the way inserted in the body. But there are also sold separately bodykit like to Camry

Toyota went crazy over modded cars at the recent Tokyo Auto Salon in Japan. Alongside the FT-86 tuned by Gazoo under a new “G-Sports” badge, Toyota also showcased three other G-Sports cars.
First up is the Toyota Prius G-Sports, apparently tuned for even higher efficiency with better aerodynamics. Mods include a complete body kit that streamlines the exterior to cartoonish levels.
Then there is the Toyota Mark X G-Sports, with a sporting body kit and a 315 hp 3.5-litre V6 engine. If anyone follows the wannabe-tuner scene in the UAE, they’d know that this car’s predecessor, the Cressida-era Mark II, has reached legendary proportions in regional ghetto garages, thanks to its rear-wheel-drive and inline-6 motors.
Finally, the Toyota MR2 G-Sports is an engineering exercise. Based on the out-of-production MR2, the concept is a four-wheel-drive hybrid which uses a mid-mounted 3.3-litre V6 and Toyota’s THSII hybrid system, with an electric motor turning the front wheels, and the V6 kicks in at the rear wheels when needed. Good for more than 390 hp in total, the 1500 kg concept can do 0-100 kph in 4.5 seconds.
None of these cars will have a market outside Japan, but at least it shows that Toyota is dabbling in interesting enthusiast cars again, with a little outside help.

No way. That FT-86 will replace STI's. It will be rear wheel drive with an available turbo (and 6 speed) and the base model looks awesome. It's modeled after the legendary AE-86 Corolla with touches from the 2JZ Supra interior and is FINALLY a Toyota worthy sports car.

Have to agree! I really like them! I will still own a 96 Supra TT silver/hard top in my lifetime but the FT-86 is freaking cool!

I can totally agree. nothing even compares to a tt supra, but never-the-less this FT-86 is a step in the right direction

Yeah, the TT Supra was lightning in a bottle. No way something like that would come out of Toyota again. This strikes me as a blingy (and IMVHO ugly) STI WRX-lite, it's got a Subie motor afterall. I'll admit, though, in one color without the silly unpainted carbon hood, it looks better. Still hate those pulled back headlights a lot.

Just the thing for a retirement car.
