Toyota FT-86 named one of 25 Cars Worth Waiting For in 2011-2014 by Car and Driver

The Toyota FT-86 is on the list of “25 Cars Worth Waiting For” in years 2011-2014 says Car and Driver Magazine in their May 2010 issue (tell us something we don’t know! ;))

The article doesn’t provide any information that we haven’t already discussed on our forums, but C&D predicts that the car may revive the Celica nameplate for the production version of the FT-86. The author also recognizes that although a rumored 170hp 2.0L engine may sound underpowered, it may still provide plenty of thrills if paired with a lightweight nimble and dynamic chassis (using the 167hp Mazda Miata as a good example). And if 170hp isn’t adequate, C&D predicts a 230hp turbo version will follow. Finallly, they peg the price point at just above $20,000 USD.
