Turbo FT-86: The G Sports Concept

Since Tokyo Auto Salon is happening right now in Japan, we thought a special weekend update was in order!  The boys over at 7TUNE have the scoop on the latest FT-86 devleopment – the FT-86 G Sports Concept. It’s a turbocharged special tuned edition of the ‘revival hachiroku’, the FT-86 Concept. Is this the first time a concept has had its own tuner version before the actual car was released?

G’s and Toyota have been kind enough to offer me a closer look at the car so a feature is to follow but for now, let your minds wander over the huge proposition this car represents to the future of the aftermarket tuning industry.

Check the rest of the pics at 7TUNE and the live walk-around video from GT Channel after the jump.

    This is really starting to get some momentum! I hope it is not all lost by the Toyota accountants.

    And if it gets past them (they have an extra 300 million since Toyota F1 is no longer around right…..) I hope Toyota Australia don’t then fuck it all up!

    No, the Hyundai Genesis coupe had a HKS version at the 2008 SEMA show.

    Has there been any confirmation on whether the ft-86 (or what ever the production name ends up being) will actually make it to Australia? There were rumours that the Toyota version would be JDM only and Subaru Australia said they wouldn’t have a non-4wd in their line up, so fingers crossed they sort something out, or we’ll all have to get one as a grey import.
