    FT-86 to be named FR-S...

    Holiday Auto mag in Japan reckons the FT-86 will be named "FR-S" at its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in December. Also they have a leaked image of the emblem which will appear on the engine cover, the numbers "86" between flat 4 conrods and pistons where the crank would be. The FR-S naming would be in line with the LFA and IS F, also the restyling of the front end will be more in line with current models just released like the Vitz and Ractis, not completely but subtle cues to give it more of a family connection than the previous FT-86 concept had. Donk is still the FB20 with D4-S and 200ps (some say as low as 180ps) with 200Nm or torque. Not sure how heavy it'll be but the NA version is more for the AE86 purists so won't be quick at all, but there's also the G's turbo version which will probably get the most attention.

    In North America it'll be sold as a Scion and the turbo kit will be available as a TRD option, not as a complete car from G's (G's complete will be only available in Japan). Pricing starts at 2,000,000 yen which they reckon Toyota is completely adamant about sticking to as a base price as they've been saying all along. There's also rumours of a 4-door but there's not been much talk of it in any certain terms but for now, restyled FT-86 to debut in December at the TMS for 2,000,000 yen base price.

    The pic below is just CG art, but the engine cover emblem is on the money apparently...

                    2,000,000 / 85 = $23,500aud

                    $23,500aud + (Toyota Aus. markup) =


                    $60,000

                    GREAT SUCCESS

                          Yep... sad. It's not the type of car you can wack a ridiculous price on either but I know they will.

                            What models does 2'million yen put it under and over in the Toyota lineup in the Japanese market?

                            Any equivalents to the Aussie market?

                              The Blade and Mark X would come in above the FT-86 and both start at around 2,300,000 yen, and under would be the Allion, Vitz, Ractis... so many models cross paths with pricing it's hard to say where it would sit as opposed to the Aussie line up consisting of a sedan, hatch, 27 SUV shite wagons and a ute.
