I feel like there's a little too much red going on in that interior. I realize the badges are covered up, and that the final production version will probably look slightly different, but that black and red steering wheel looks like an AutoZone purchase.

The bottom one looks much better IMO.

The engineers assured him that there will be two manual gearbox options with different ratios
The Toyota will be the most affordable of the trio
The test unit was wearing Michelin Primacy HPs in 215/45 size on 17" wheels
They have freed car's electronics (ECU) so aftermarket industry can tune it at its will
It's going to be on sale on June of 2012
Those 2 have me excited. They're putting a pretty decent summer tire on the thing, and you know someone will figure out a turbo placement and develop a kit before the year's end.

At the weight this car has, getting it up to something around 250whp would make it tons of fun

From what I've been reading, the BRZ is going to be more powerful and so far, more appealing. The rear end is way sexier and sleeker than the FRS. Interesting what is going to play out in two weeks at the Tokyo Show to see what the production version of the FRS is going to be. Really the deciding factor on my purchase plans. So far, BRZ is looking like the better option.

FR-S would've been sexier than the brz if they kept the concept


they'll prob end up changing the brz's looks as well...looks a bit too much similar to the fr-s. dont think they would want that.

good thing this is a concept judging by the blacked out windows because the door proportion looks like ass compared the rest of the car.

and here's your watered down production version of a tight concept scion delivered. Looks like the BMW 335i (xi) is my next car. Not this heavy, ugly, pos. What a disappointment.

are you on some new mutated form of crack? that thing is pure buttsecks minus the tails

its also 2601lbs

how do you call a 2600lb $25000 car heavy and then say you are gonna buy a 4000lb $50,000 car instead...seriously one of the most idiotic posts that has ever graced this fourm...and that is saying a lot



so epic

I wouldn't say buying a BMW 335i or xi to be an idiotic post. 302 hp and 295 ft lbs and the option of having either AWD or RWD. It being only 900 lbs heavier, it's obviously a bigger car than the GT-86, with more luxury option in the car. I guess with me getting older, I want more of that with a semi fast production car and good looks. The GT-86 looks too much like a Saturn Ion




The interior is great in the GT-86. Don't get me wrong, they nailed it on that. I think the engine could have produced a little bit more hp and definitely more tq. They are only producing 1000 of these a year and each one is going to be by hand. The new estimated price is looking at $35k. I can find a slightly used, low mileage BMW for a lot less, without it having a terrible looking rear end.

I see similarities with the two. Not the same exactly, but similar enough.


The rear is still ugly as hell. /story


As for the $35k price range. I've been reading it all over the ft86 forums threads. Prices starting around $28k.

I'm just trying to really figure out what would make this car look better



The obvious

Rear
- Tail Lights (Red Vinyls, Paint)
- Different type of "Diffuser"




This already looks much better.


Misc

- Different hood to give the front a more aggressive feeling
- Lip kit of some sort
- Definite need of a 3-4 inch drop. Holy RSX wheel gap!
- Obviously wheels. Something staggered and aggressive to suit the car. Existing wheels are way too thin, especially with the rear being so "bulky"
- Debadging the fender emblem
- Side mirrors!!!
- Painted to match front bumper reflector markers (like BMW e90/92/93's)

Everyone will have their own taste to modding. I'm sure with the right amount of money and aftermarket materials showing up, you could make this look stunning. I'm just not completely sold on it in it's stock form. The 02-04 RSX is fugly until modified. Just ranting I guess. Was expecting more sleekness like the concept.

Got to admit I was really hopeful for this car but once it was announced it would be a Scion over here I knew it was going all down-hill from there. And now with these production version photos, my fears have truly been realized. Way to fuck up an awesome concept Toyota
