The long awaited Toyota FT-86 sports coupé took another step towards hitting the road at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The sleek 2+2 uses a Subaru developed rear-wheel drive chassis and boxer engine and will be built at Subaru's Gunma factory in Japan.
Christened the FT-86 II in reference to the fact that this is the second evolution of the concept, first shown back in 2009, the car gets revised detailing front and rear, particularly around the front bumper and lights.
It also gets a new bronzed paint job. The full production version is expected to make its debut, almost unchanged at Japan's Tokyo Motor Show in December.
Under the bonnet, there's a 2-litre flat-four offering around 200bhp, while the car is expected to offer drivers a choice between six-speed manual, and six-speed automatic gearboxes.
The concept has a 2570mm wheelbase and measures 4235mm in length. It's also 1795mm wide and 1270mm high - making it about the same size as a Volkswagen Scirocco.
While Toyota is remaining tight lipped about it's exact plans for the model, a spokesperson did tell us that the car will be "lively, and offer accessible performance that is easy to harness and enjoy."
Expected to go on sale in early 2012, it's expected that the car will cost from around £18,000
