This was in a thread on the toyobaru forum:

Quote:
Let me end on a different note. From the Celica, MR2 and the Supra, Toyota has created over time a heritage of exciting sports model. Now with this distinctive front engine FT-86 concept is ready to introduce the next generation of Toyota sports cars. It’s extremely light with a low center of gravity and this delivering instant precise response with even the slightest of steering input. When we introduce FT-86 in early in 2012 it will bring real joy into the Toyota showrooms.
Still not really sure what that means.

I think we can really believe now that the ED2 design (with small mods) will trump the other two designs! I wonder how long before 7Tune retracts their crap rumor that it was rejected? They'll probably ride that piece of attention for as long as they can!
