Toyota FT-86: famous soon Celica?

Toyota FT-86For marketing, in the first quarter of 2012, the Toyota FT-86 looks set to regain the title Celica.

Presented several times in the last two years, the concept Toyota FT-86 (pictured) is similar to increasing production. Remember, this is a tribute to the coupe AE86 Corolla which will offer a 4-cylinder 200 horsepower and about a 6-speed manual transmission.

Marketing should occur during the first quarter of 2012, after a formal presentation scheduled for the end of this year. And one thing is certain, the model will not retain the “FT-86”. Already launched in the past, the rumor of the takeover of the name “Celica” is therefore in force.

Toyota FT-86Especially because Toyota really seems to want to revive the name of its former flagship model which generated seven different generations from 1971 to 2005. The FT-86, produced in partnership with Subaru , Celica could be named for its commercialization in Europe and Japan. In contrast, the United States, it will not be the distributor but Toyota’s Scion subsidiary. Suddenly, the future model will be sold under another name.
