FT-86 Concept Debut At Toyota Metapolis

7Tune reader Ken (aka K) was kind enough to drop us a line about the new Toyota FT-86 Concept and some high resolution photos currently flying around the internet and to be honest, we were caught sleeping! Usually the rumors slow down towards the Tokyo Motor Show which will be held later this month so it’s great to see Toyota jumping the gun and providing official images of the long awaited concept. For those who can read Japanese, Toyota Metapolis also has a debut event for the FT-86 on October 23rd.

I finally went back to my old neighborhood in Settsu-Motoyama in Kobe and sure enough, the old “abandoned” AE86 Toyota Sprinter Trueno was still there, only now in a different position! Yep, it’s the same car I saw behind my apartment way back in late 2003. Read more

Filed under Latest Articles, Odd Spot

I dread spring cleaning. As a male I can’t see the point of it really, but it does uncover some long lost treasures sometimes! I found some old photo albums from almost 10 years ago when I first came to Japan and my first visit to the Nanko area in Osaka and its now-infamous drift spot. Read more
