Toyota FT-86 Concept: It’s Brand New!

Toyota FT-86 Concept

We all know that sports car fans are constantly looking for the next bright and shiny sports car that they can bow down to.  Well – the Toyota FT-86 Concept is going to be it, if it makes it through the testing mind you.  This beautiful car is actually looking pretty chic in this picture and while it might just be a concept car right now, Toyota is seriously considering putting the Toyota FT-86 Concept together.

The engine – well, it is certainly something to be proud of.  It is going to be a 2.0-liter engine with about 250HP to it.  While that might not seem all that fast or that big, the smaller the engine, the better the quality is the rule that I go by.

If you happen to be looking for a new sports car – the Toyota FT-86 Concept is going to be awesome!
