Toyota FT-86 competition / track model in the works!

EVO magazine’s most recent issue (the “EVO Car Of The Year Issue”) has coverage on the Toyota FT-86 and Subaru 216a, including an article with the following enticing title:

“TWO FOR THE TRACK — NEW JAPANESE COUPES BOTH SET TO GO RACING”

The article makes reference to a special low-frills competition version which will sell for less than $22,000! The source close to Toyota told EVO that such a version will be tweaked for racing with special stiffer suspension and larger, more powerful brakes. This competition/track FT-86 will also be used for drifting competitions. This is the first time we have heard mention of a competition/track version of the FT-86 and while we’re completely thrilled at the prospect of a competition model, it makes the wait for it that much harder!!
