Toyota FT-86 / Scion FR-S specs leaked via training manual

http://www.autoblog.com/2011/10/31/t...aining-manual/



Quote:
We may have a clearer picture of what the Toyota FT-86 / Scion FR-S will bring to the table when the production version finally arrives. A few scans of a purported Toyota training manual on the vehicle have made their way into the hands of the internet via the FT86Club.com forum.

If the site's translations are accurate, the vehicle will boast a 2.0-liter flat-four producing 197 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 150 pound-feet of torque at 6,600 rpm. While not overwhelming numbers, if the handling is as good as we've been hearing, the powertrain should be enough to hustle the 2,667-pound coupe around your favorite twisty road at a respectable pace.

The sheet also reveals that the FR-S will come in two trims, at least in Japan. A higher-spec variant will come with a limited-slip rear differential in both manual and automatic-equipped vehicles, while the lower-spec model will only have the LSD when equipped with a third pedal (which is just fine by us).

Topped-out JDM versions will also have a leather-wrapped steering wheel, LED accent lighting, a six-speaker audio system, sport pedals and white-faced gauges. Models will also be differentiated by wheel size, with higher-trims wearing modest 17-inch rollers and lower models rolling on 16-inch stock.

Just a day after this is leaked:

Is this the standard production version of the Toyota FT-86 / Scion FR-S? Sure looks like it. Another set of brochure shots acquired by the FT-86 forum shows a plainer version of the new rear-drive sports car in red, in contrast to the white Modellista brochure shots from a few days ago. The interior images are the same as before, but the exteriors diverge in a few areas: the production version doesn't appear to have LED accents by the headlights, the skirting is softer around the car, a conventional whip antenna replaces the shark fin on the roof, and there's optional vent ornamentation for the front fenders.

Opinion seems to be divided on whether Toyota has gone too far with certain elements of the car or, after years of gestation, if didn't go far enough. We don't have much longer to wait until the real thing takes a deep bow at the Tokyo Motor Show, but is this what you've been waiting for?

I have loved the concepts of this car. The picture in the first post is an awesome looking car, IMO. If the pic in my second post is true, then I'll have to see it in person.

Since I will most likely be looking for a newer car next year I am really anxious to see what this car will turn out like in its' distribution stage.

I think it will be important to see some real publicity stills of the production car. There's a lot of borrowed elements from Maserati, Lexus, Nissan, Mitsubishi and others. Depending on how they're put together, you'll either have something looking new and sleek while familiar or something all too familiar.

I'm not a Toyota person but I dig that body - This may sting a little, but to my untrained eye it resembles the 370 Z

I dont like those. Kinda wish they would have just kept the concepts design instead of raising the car an extra 6 inches lol. The back of the car looks like a civic crossed with a 370z and subaru hybrid lights. The concept looks so much better. Last but not least please put some wider tires on this thing! It looks like it is getting ready to walk a tight rope or something.

Wheels and drop would be done ASAP if I got one. Then it would be sexy.

yep wheels are ok, tires need to be much wider, and about 3-4 inch drop is a must.

Still looks just like a 370 to me

The car in stock form will get laughed off the road. Hide the concept pics FT86 owners!

I like the Subaru version better. This just reminds me too much of the later generation Mitsubishi Eclipse.

This is something I wasn't expecting to see:

Both manufacturer's names? Boy will that confuse everyone!

Parts guy: "So is it a Toyota or a Subaru?"
Owner: "Both!"

lol!

I would be interested in the concept, but side by side the production looks cheap

Those taillights aren't bad, but the clear part is what ruins them. But then if they're all red, they're BMW z4 taillights.

Let's be honest, they look like ebay taillights.
