Unveiled at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show and most recently at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon, the Toyota 2012 FT-86 is without a doubt one of the most spectacular looking coupe they have ever created. Co-developed with Subaru, hence the oft-used Toyobaru or even Subayota names, this sporty coupe draws heavily on Toyota's RWD heritage and Subaru's in-house super-tuner, Subaru Technica International, aka STI.

Mazda Shinari Concept debuts new face of the brand in style!
Looking at the exterior, it's easy to tell that the Shinari shares little
in common with Mazda's recent designs, although like almost every sedan
built today, it has similarities to vehicles from other brands. It's almost
as if the Aston Martin Rapide and a Mazda RX-8 cued up some Barry White,
enjoyed a romantic evening and the Shinari came out nine months later.
That's obviously a compliment, as the Rapide is a stunningly beautiful car
and the RX-8 -- even this far into its lifecycle -- is still a looker.
However, the Shinari has a much more complicated design, with more
intersecting lines and a surface area that's constantly moving and changing
depending on the lighting.
While the exterior is certainly a departure from previous designs, the
interior is perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Shinari. Easily the
most attractive and stylish interior we've seen in a Mazda (concept or
not), it's swathed in authentic aluminum trim, leather-covered surfaces and
double stitching at nearly every turn and twist. We're again drawn to the
Aston Martin Rapide comparison, especially with the design of the deep rear
bucket seats. The gauges, modeled after popular watch designs, up the class
quotient and the massive glass roof helps make the interior feel open and
But more than the tech and the attention to detail, it's the Shinari's
overall cohesion that impresses the most. Unlike other pie-in-the-sky
concepts, the Sinari is a smart, well executed styling exercise that should
be a solid design platform for future models. The muscular lines should
translate well into a production car, and customers will always appreciate
a more sophisticated interior.
We sure like the sound of a Mazda RX-9!

Toyota FT-86 test al Nürburgring
Toyota FT-86 test al Nürburgring
La Toyota FT-86 è la prima vettura nata dalla collaborazione con Subaru.
La coupé dal desing molto aggressivo ha già messo nel mirino la
concorrenza: Volkswagen Scirocco e Renault Megane Coupé.
La Toyota FT-86 è una coupé 2+2 a trazione posteriore, prima vettura ad
unire un'architettura caratterizzata dal motore Boxer Subaru con il sistema
di iniezione Toyota D-4S.
Il motore dovrebbe garantire una potenza di almeno 200CV per una velocità
massima di 225 km/h e un'accelarzione 0-100 km/h inferiore ai 7".
Rumors insistenti parlano anche di una motorizzazione sovralimentata
accreditata oltre 275CV, perché Toyota non scorda di essere stata la prima
casa giapponese a mettere... ruota al Nürburgring.
Il suo arrivo è previsto per il 2012 nei mercati dov'è presente,
dall'Europa agli Stati Uniti, Giappone incluso.
Negli Stati Uniti la commercializzazione è prevista con il nome di Scion
mentre anche Subaru sta sviluppando il suo modello.

Toyota 86 on the road, test drive behind the scenes
Un mois après la présentation de la GT 86, Toyota nous offre une nouvelle
vidéo de son coupé sportif conçu conjointement avec Subaru. Ici, en plus
de voir la sportive nippone en action et en travers, nous pouvons
apercevoir deux de ses devancières : la Sport 800 (bicylindres 790 cm3, 45
ch et 580 kg) et la Corolla Levin AE86 (quatre-en-ligne 1.6, 114 ch et 980
kg). Cette dernière a rencontré un franc succès dans le monde du drift
grâce à son faible poids et à son potentiel de préparation important.
