Report: Baby Toyota FT-86 also in the works

According to R&T, Toyota is currently working on a “baby FT-86″ sports coupe to slot in under the Toyota FT-86. The baby FT-86 is expected to be priced at $5000 less than the FT-86, which makes some sense since it’s been recently reported that the FT-86 will come to market at a price tag slightly higher than Toyota’s original $20,000 target.

Hence, the baby FT-86 sports car will fill Toyota’s sub-$20k sports car slot. The rumor is that the car will measure 150 inches overall length and be powered by Toyota’s 1.5L inline 4-cylinder 3SZ-VE engine, good for 109bhp. The drivetrain will feature a front engine and rear wheel drive. Rumored debut date is 2012.
