Toyota’s FT-86 sports coupe has to be one of the most hotly anticipated cars of the last ten years. A sporty, lightweight, front-engined and rear-wheel-drive spiritual successor to the legendary AE86, brought to you by the same company that built the Celica, MR2 and Supra? Yes, please!
So far, we’ve had three iterations of the “AE86 Nouveau”. First, there’s the original, scene stealing Toyota FT-86 Concept from the2009 Tokyo Motor Show. Then there’s the much derided FT-86 II Concept from Geneva 2011. And lastly, there’s the Ferrari-emulating Scion FR-S that took the 2011 New York Auto Show by storm.
So there you have it. Three cars, three continents – but there can only be one winner – for our poll, that is. Will you choose the original, cherry red example from 2009, the butt-ugly but more production ready storm grey example from Geneva or the new hotness from New York 2011?
Ladies and gentlemen, to your polling stations!
