OFFERING THE BEST look yet at Toyota's plans for its upcoming entry-level rear-wheel-drive sportscar, the Japanese carmaker has revealed the FT-86 concept ahead of its Tokyo Motor Show debut.

Borrowing styling cues from both the FT-HS concept and the upcoming Lexus LF-A, the FT-86 is likely powered by the same Subaru-sourced 2.0 litre four-cylinder boxer engine expected to power the upcoming 'O86A'.

Toyota has released very little information for the FT-86, but a brief press release issued today points to a lightweight body and a low centre of gravity as specific focus points for the concept's development.

The FT-86 measures 4160mm long, 1760mm wide and 1260mm tall, riding on a 2570mm wheelbase.

Whether the FT-86 is a near-production look at the upcoming entry-level sportscar or yet another Toyota concept destined for the company's museum remains to be seen.

One stand-out line from the release - "The FT-86 ("86" pronounced "hachi roku"), a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car, provides driving joy and excitement" - points to new Toyota President Akio Toyoda's eagerness to revive Toyota's sporting history.

More information will be revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show this month, which runs from October 24 to November 4, with the car likely to be unveiled at the event's October 21 press day.

The production version of the Lexus LF-A is expected to join the FT-86 at Tokyo.
