Behold the Toyota FT-86 concept; if you’re a Japanese car enthusiast, you’re probably taking a trip down memory lane. For those of you who can’t find this particular lane, the Toyota FT-86 is the newest concept car from Toyota and inspired by the AE86, a much-loved lightweight sports coupe that first appeared on the market in the 80s.
What brought about this nostalgic trip into the past? According to AutoBlog.com, Toyota’s President Akio Toyoda was in “desperate need of an excitement injection.” Along with appealing to nostalgia the Toyota FT-86, as FreshnessMag.com describes, is powered by a “Subaru-derived 2.0-liter boxer engine”. Auto afficionados, I assume you know what that means.
