Toyota FR-S : Official Name for the FT-86 Concept?

Toyota FR-S: Official Name for the FT-86 Concept?
Wednesday June 16 2010 | By Colum Wood



The biggest question surrounding Toyota’s awesome FT-86 concept isn’t if the car will make it to production, but what it will be called. That mystery may have just been solved, with word that Toyota Motor Corporation has just filed a trademark for the “FR-S” name in both the U.S. and Canada.

The name certainly makes a lot of sense, with “FR” standing for front-engine, rear-wheel drive, while the “S” presumably being used to indicate that this is in fact a sports car. Like the FT-86 Concept’s name, it’s also a throwback to the Corolla AE-86 that inspired it.

First MR & MR-S and now, FR-S? I guess, Toyota love Engine & Tranny layout in their name

Again, it doesn't matter what's the name of this car gonna be. If they name this car Toyota *** & made it damn good fun car, I'll still buy it.

I like it, the name has purpose and it dosnt sound weak. I wonder how much truth there is to this and if it is actually for it....

Also wonder if the name will be the same world wide or different in each market
hhhmmmmmmmm????????????

They pretty much did. If it gets "FR" in the name, all the haters are gonna call this car the "*** Rocket"

FR-S = *** Rocket Special

If this is indeed the 'intended' name for the car, then would this reflect the fact that Toyota will be giving us new tid bits (not really give us, someone had to stalk their trademark activities) about the car that we have been worshiping ever since Oct of 2009. Or does this mean that Toyota will give news once every eight months.

Anyways I'm fine with the name. Good Job Toyota!

That's not a problem. I rather take feather weight *** Rocket Special than 3300lbs fat-ass car any day.

I went in my.IS forums, and I see a guy in the forums claims that Toyota filed FR-S trademark in both the US and Canada. If what he said is true, FR-S is the official name.

Toyota Motor Corporation has filed for the trademark FR-S in U.S. and Canada.

U.S. Trademark Application No. 85049145 filed May 27, 2010 for "Automobiles and structural parts thereof".

Canadian Trade-Mark Application No. 1482643 filed May 27, 2010 for "Automobiles and structural parts thereof".

Will this be the official name for the Toyota version of the Toyota/Subaru collaboration car, a.k.a. FT-86 or 086A?
