Arrow Toyota Officially Registers "86" Trademark

Here is the latest installment in the FT-86 naming saga. The question all along has been "What will Toyota call the production version of the FT-86?" Will it retain the FT-86 badge? Will it even be badged as a Toyota (rather than a Scion)?

If this trademark is to be any indication, it shows that the car's production name may retain the "86" portion of the concept car's name. Filed by Toyota on December 23, 2010, the trademark shows that Toyota was or is serious enough about retaining "86" in the name to trademark a logo.

This is the same stylized 86 which we saw in the center of a bigger logo late last year. That larger logo showed a cross section of a boxer engine, featuring one horizontally opposed piston on each side and the now trademarked number 86 logo inserted in the center where the crankshaft would be.

Toyota's "86" trademark filing: http://www.ipo.gov.uk/types/tm/t-os/...demark=2567820

It could still be called the Scion 86. It fits with the rest of their 2 character naming scheme.

Autoblog also said the Subaru version was going to be AWD...

They're months behind.

Maybe I missed it, but did someone see this?

http://www.ipo.gov.uk/types/tm/t-os/...demark=2550743

Trademark for "Toyota 86" for "Automobiles and structural parts thereof."

Interesting....

Send a message via AIM to jay4prez Send a message via Yahoo to jay4prez
quick google search for "structural parts thereof, automobile" turned up the below page.


http://www.trademarkia.com/company-t...51320-page-1-2

And LOOK its TOYOTA.

Scroll down about 1 page and you'll also see the "Supra" name, so all is pointing towards 86 in the name of the vehicle, or at least some kind of designation

So being that now, they can choose to mix and match, say a "86 FR-S(Sport?)

But the 86 newly trademarked is definitely a Logo Toyota wants to lock down.

I wouldn't mind seeing that logo in the steering wheel, of course darkened, and or possibly etched in black leather or similar.

Agree^ I like the new one a bit more than the one with the pistons. The first one is too big
