2011 Toyota FT-86 G (European debut)

The Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept is a modification of the Toyota FT-86 Concept manufactured jointly by Toyota and Subaru and shown at the January 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon as part of the Toyota G Sports range. The FT-86 G Sports Concept differs from the original FT-86 in the use of carbon fibre panels, a vented bonnet, a large rear spoiler, new 19 inch wheels and a custom exhaust.[1][2] The interior features Recaro bucket seats and a rollcage. The horizontally opposed engine is upgraded with a turbocharger.[3] Tyres are Potenza RE050 245/40R19
at the front and 275/35R19 at the rear.[2] The FT-86 G Sports concept has reappeared at Toyota's showroom in Amlux, Ikebukuro[4] and Osaka Auto Messe 2010 car tuning exhibition.[5]

The Toyota FT-CH (Future Toyota Compact Hybrid) is a concept vehicle built by Toyota and first shown at the January 2010 North American International Auto Show.[7] Compared to the Toyota Prius, the FT-CH is 22 inches shorter in overall length and less than an inch narrower in overall width. It is lighter in weight and more fuel efficient than the Prius. This concept is targeting a lower price range than the Prius line-up, thus "appealing to a younger, less-affluent buyer demographic."[8]
The FT-CH was designed at Toyota European Design and Development. The NiMH batteries are made by Panasonic EV Energy Co - a joint venture between Toyota and Panasonic.[8]
