    As long as they aren't on that 10+ years schedule I think it's ok, I still expect to see this thing like 2018 maybe.

    It took the Toyobaru only 3 years from FT-86 Concept I to GT86 Production.

    ^I think it was closer to two years.

    FT-86 debut at the 2009 Tokyo Motor in October of 2009. The first production debuted at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show in November.

    I think we might see it in late 2016 as a 2017 model year.

    Toyota Aims to Deliver FT-1′s Virtual Performance for Real



    Toyota might be making serious moves toward a production version of the FT-1 concept that set Detroit ablaze last January.

    In what look like scanned pages of MotorTrend’s July issue, the magazine reports that Toyota Motor Sales – the company’s U.S. arm – is rumored to have ordered a second copy of the FT-1 concept in a different color following overwhelmingly positive feedback on the auto show circuit. The same report suggests that Toyota is working on a wide-body race car version in a video game tie-up, possibly with the Gran Turismo racing franchise.

    MotorTrend opines that a second concept car being ordered signals Toyota taking a more serous look at building what was originally meant to be a design study because that would mean the company greenlit additional spending on the project. Word is, Toyota wants to shoot for the 2,900-lb weight and 485-hp output rating that the FT-1 Concept claims in Gran Turismo 6.

    There still isn’t any word on what might power the car, but Toyota is currently working with BMW to co-develop a sports car. Bavarian Motor Works is currently using a turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine to power its newM3 and M4 siblings, so it isn’t outlandish to imagine that engine showing up in Toyota’s yet-unnamed sports car. In the BMW application, the engine pushes out 425 hp, which would put the FT-1 in spitting distance of that goal before any sort of enhancements.

    A Toyota spokesman was not available to comment on the rumor.

    Don't want any BMW engine, especially not the BMW M4 engine, when Toyota own Lexus RC F has a better engine.

    Just a wild guess, but maybe they will use the V6 TT that is rumored for the next gen IS-F?

    I hope the second concept will be closer to the size of the production car. Toyota did stated that the red FT-1 concept was made 10% larger to give it greater stage presence.

    Really? Then I'm even more eager to see it come. What would be its lenght is the car is to be 10% smaller? If so, there are even more reasons to think it might get a V6, being a shorter engine. But 485 PS from a NA V8 in 1300 kg? That is supercar car performance.

    Yup! Thats a hard one. Because Toyota officially never gave us any specs for the actually red FT-1 concept. The specs that everyone has been going by is from GT6. So we don't really know if that is the same specs as the actual concept itself.

    Anyways, I posted it on SupraForums awhile back. 10% less than the GT6 spec would make this car shorter than the 86/FR-S.

    Representatives from other automakers shouldn't take the FT-1's dimensions seriously. To make the car more imposing on stage, Toyota designers made the concept car 10 percent larger than what a real-world vehicle would be, Hunter said. What's more, there was little involvement or input from Toyota's engineering department. The "engine" under the hood is a prop, not an actual powertrain.
