2013 Toyota FT-86 Coupe

Published July 19, 2012

When Toyota revealed their concept FT-86 Coupe in the 2009 Motor Show, only a few eyes could keep it unnoticed. Since then followed a hoard of speculations and expectations over what the reality of what Toyota’s version of this sports car would be. After 2 years went by, the concept got painted into reality with the 2013 Toyota FT 86.

Named as the FT-86 to pay homage to both the prestigious Toyota’s FT car lineage as well as the superb driving experience offered by the Corolla AE86, the Toyota FT-86 is all set to be the next star in the wide range of vehicles from the Japanese automobile manufacturer.

The Toyota FT-86 features an absolutely stunning exterior. It is one that displays both the encroaching look of a sports car as well as the class of a sedan. The design hasn’t changed by much from the concept displayed in 2009, and this has come out as a total boon for the FT-86. With headlights that look very much like the eyes of an angry monster to a perfectly aerodynamic arrangement, there is little one can find to be faulty in the FT-86’s designing.

The interior doesn’t lag the exteriors in the beauty pageant in any way. In fact, with an interior as sport and supreme as its exterior, the 2013 Toyota FT-86 is a complete eye-candy in and out. A GPS navigation system is integral to the designing, featuring as a panel over the radial controls next to the six-speed gearbox on offer.

The FT-86 carries a 2.0 liter naturally aspirated engine capable of generating 200 HP at 7000 rpm. This comes as a black spot on the white wall as it definitely lesser than what many fans were expecting from the sports car on offer to them. Nonetheless, the FT-86 offers accurate shifts using its well-tuned gearbox. A nearly perfect weight division of 53:47 helps the cause for the Toyota FT-86 when it comes to handling.

A price tag of about 25000$ is estimated from the FT-86. It is a pretty justified bargain for the superb looking new coupe from Toyota with not so out-of-the-box outrageous power.

To Sum it up, the Toyota FT-86 is definitely a luxury sports car that has nearly perfect killer looks and still a decent amount of power with it at a price tag that will fit many pockets willing to get hold of a refreshing new vehicle.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
