Toyota FT 86II Concept (Video&Slides) 2012
The new FT-86 II Concept makes its world debut at the Geneva motor show,
giving the clearest indication yet as to the final design of Toyota's next
sports car. It marks a return to the passion for driving that has inspired
great Toyota cars of the past, starting with the legendary 2000 GT in the
With its long, low bonnet, high wings and rear-set cabin, the FT-86 II pays
homage to Toyota's sports car history and is an entirely driver-oriented
concept. It was created at Toyota's European design studio ED2, where its
styling was dubbed 'functional beauty': its bold, sweeping form has been
generated purely according to the constraints of function and aerodynamics.
The low, highly aerodynamic bodyshell is stretched tight over the
engineering hard points, with the muscular bodywork rendered as compact as
possible. The concept measures 4,235mm long, 1,795mm wide and 1,270mm high,
with a long, 2,570mm wheelbase.
Rather than using a heavy, large displacement powertrain to secure
performance, the FT86 II returns to Toyota's sporting roots by combining a
free-revving boxer petrol engine with a compact and lightweight six-speed
manual transmission and a low centre of gravity to achieve the best
possible power to weight ratio.
Both the powertrain and the driving position have been set as low and as
far back as possible to optimise balance for maximum poise, high-speed
stability and agility. With a front-engine/rear-wheel drive configuration,
this gives the car lively, accessible performance that is easy to harness
The FT-86 II Concept is the latest stage in the development of a new,
compact rear-wheel drive sports car that is being jointly developed by
Toyota and Fuji Heavy Industries (Subaru). The new model will be launched
in Europe in 2012.

It's not the raw driving machine many may expect. Its not visceral like a
Lotus Elise or as singular in purpose as a Honda S2000, and it won't beat
In fact, it's quite civilized. It is, however, very much a purist's car and

Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 II Concept Engine and Exhaust Sound Clips
Courtesy of http://www.ft86club.com. Here are official sounds of the Scion
FR-S / Toyota FT-86 concept (specifically from the Toyota FT-86 II Concept
shown at the 2011 Geneva Autoshow).
The sound should be the same or very similar for all 3 Scion FR-S / FT-86
cars since they all feature the same Boxer engine and Exhaust setup.
Official sounds clips are from the official Toyota FT-86 II Concept Site.
