FT-86 TO Raise The Roof - On Its Price Tag
There's little debate that the FT-86 is a much-needed blast of adrenaline for a tuning industry in need of a jolt. The Toyotaru sports a sleek, sculpted coupe body, Subaru Boxer engine and RWD. But the car isn't even on the road and a rumor has the price going up. The previous best-case-scenario target of $20,000 has been raised to $23,000.
The reasons for this include development costs, production costs, Toyota upping the target age demographic from 30 to 40 to who knows what. Will $3,000 make a difference to struggling enthusiasts? Probably to some degree, but the bottom line is the FT-86 is the only all-new rear-drive platform we have anywhere near the pipeline, so let's get this show on the road.
