This has been floating around all over the internet today on a supposed leaked photo for the Toyota FT-86 from Toyota’s Modellista catalog.

Not gonna front, this thing looks nice! An affordable sporty Toyota that I can vibe with.  Reminscent of the days of having a 7th gen Celica.

2011 Geneva Auto Show: Toyota FT-86 II Concept

I’m definitely feeling this car! It’ll obviously be a bit toned down for the production version, which is good since some aspects of the car is a tad overdone. Toyota, please keep it as a Toyota (No Scion please), this is a step forward to being the old fun Toyota we once knew.

Then again, the Subaru version sounds a lot more promising. AWD STI version in the works? Hmmmmm

Spy Shots: Subaru FT-86 RWD Coupe

Here’s the collab coupe project between Toyota and Subaru, dubbed as the FT-86 aka “Toyobaru”

This is obviously a test mule which has been seen being tested in the hot ass California desert of Death Valley.

You can pretty much consider it a “Frankenmule” since it appears to be using various exterior pieces from various Subaru vehicles.  It doesn’t appear to be the FT-86’s true shell. Perhaps they’re testing the power plant that is to be used on the Subaru version?

Only time will tell. Toyota has its version slated for a November 2011 release.

I’m seriously hyped for this. This thing can have potential, assuming there’s a boosted boxer version of this. If they do go that route, I hope Toyota ends up using it too. We haven’t seen Toyota boost a car here in the states since the Supra and MR-2.

New Toyota Line: G-Sport Series

Seems like Toyota is doing everything in its power to shake the fuddy-duddy, emotionless appliance image its built for itself over the last fifteen years or so. First came word that ToMoCo’s Mr. Toyoda stated the brand needed to get sportier. Next came the very welcome news that along with Subaru, Toyota would be introducing a lightweight, RWD sport coupe (now known to be the FT-86) that would cost about $20,000. Finally, there’s the LFA, the $500,000 Lexus, that if the reviews are to be believed, just might be worth every penny.

That’s all well and good, but what if you want a sporty Prius?

Meet the G Sports Series. To quote Toyota, the G Sports Series, “is designed for customers who strongly desire to own a unique vehicle, offering them a personalized interior and exterior design along with sports-driving performance.” Put another way, Toyota is bringing the aftermarket in-house.

With a total of five vehicles getting the G Sports Series treatment, Toyota is looking to offer customized sportiness to whomever wants it. Only two of the five cars however are U.S. market vehicles: the Prius and the FT-86. The Prius gets one hell of a body kit, including sleek rear-wheel skirts. While far from beautiful, we have to say that we like the G Series Prius much better than the regular one.

But, the real news is the G Sports Series FT-86. Because it’s the FT-86 is still officially a “concept” Toyota isn’t revealing any hard data beyond RWD, 2.0-liters and six-speed manual. Good enough for us. As far as the G Sports Series version goes, it’s a little busy and the rear wing is beyond unnecessary. Still, we’re quite excited.

Especially as the front of the FT-86 might just be revealing an intercooler. Which would mean a turbocharger. Or is that just a fancy radiator? Well, you know the Subaru version is going to have an intercooler… Just to add to the speculation, check out the drift-o-rific video after the jump.

HmMm, is that a fancy radiator or could it be…an intercooler? I so hope we get a boosted version of this in the states. I would love to see Toyota step up to included a turbo version if ever in the future. We all know Subaru wouldn’t hesitate. With Toyota’s small ownership in Subaru; I hope they incorporate some aspects of Subaru in their future cars and vice versa.

Imagine, an awd version of the FT-86. I would love to see the Celica be brought back as a GT-4/All-Trac!!!

More G Sports (G’s) series cars which I find useless on a Prius.

Hmm Toyota Mark X
