Arrow Toyota FT-86 shows at Beijing Auto Show

The original Toyota FT-86 concept is being shown by Toyota at the 2010 Beijing Auto Show currently underway in China. Although the FT-86 has not yet been shown at any North American auto shows, this move by Toyota goes to show the increased importance placed on the Chinese market by the world's car manufacturers.

Not much new is shown since this appears to be the same original concept car first debuted at the past Tokyo Motor Show. The only new element seen is the trunk being opened during prep for the show, which is likely a fuel cell (placed there just for concept use purposes). The open trunk also shows that the FT-86 does not feature a hatch (as some speculated) but a standard trunk.

I find it weird that a stingray comes to mind when I look at this photo. I'm loving this car more and more. Anyone know when the next auto show is in North America? That may solidify my hope that this WILL be coming here.

Well there goes the fastback idea. Was hoping for a hatch version

Makes sense having a fuel cell for now. I doubt it has any internal characteristics of a production car, spare tire, tire jack, main fuel tank etc.
