    Toyota S-FR Racing Concept coming to Tokyo Auto Salon 2016!

    December 3, 2015

    Toyota S-FR Becomes a Lean, Mean Racing Machine for Tokyo Auto Salon 2016


    Toyota City, Japan, December 3, 2015―With its sporty yet simple design, the Toyota S-FR turned heads when it made its global premiere at the Tokyo Motor Show in October. Now, Toyota GAZOO Racing plans to reimagine the concept as a track-ready race car at Tokyo Auto Salon 2016, a customized-car exhibition running from January 15 through 17.

    Alongside the new Toyota S-FR concept, Toyota will be exhibiting two new souped-up minivans: the Voxy G's Concept and Noah G's Concept.

    Toyota S-FR Racing Concept

    With wide flared fenders, eye-catching hood vents, and use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic canards and front/rear spoilers, this concept represents Toyota's vision of the S-FR as a performance vehicle born for the racing circuit. While the model displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show had simple, familiar styling, the Toyota S-FR Racing Concept aims for a more aggressive look.

    I like it very much. It looks like the Ginetta G40.

    I like the front. Love the hood! The rest is... meh.

    I take this as a strong sign the car will be going in to production.

    I like the hood and the channel in the roof. My overall impression with all of the "boy racer" aero bits is that this product is destined to be marketed as a Scion in the U.S.

    Most importantly, this is the first bit of real news revealed in quite a while. I was beginning to think Toyota had shelved the project.

    Just noticed the substantially wider front and rear fenders. Those give the S-FR significant additional presence.

    are you kidding me? it's only been a month since the concept reveal at TMS. it's gonna be at least 2-3 years before the car is released, i wouldn't be surprised if we go 6+ months before the next real news, even if the project isn't shelved.

    Ah~ this reminds me of dark ages with FT-86 Concept. Over an year of no solid info, just random BS auto blog articles.

    Six months between updates will extinguish the enthusiasm generated by the reveal.

    Look at FT1... Big BIG hype... Now they're almost all gone.

    what ich said. we went for over a year before we'd get concrete info for the FT-86, and look at the FT-1. we know they haven't shelved the concept, and yet there's been no news since the reveal of the prototype back in august 2014. if you're interested in this car i'd suggest you get used to waiting, even if they do release it it's gonna be a very long time in between updates.

    Begs the question why does Toyota tease for so long? Do they need that long of a period and that many concept versions to gauge the market for the cars? If not, aren't they risking more by having an overly long tease period where people are bored of the car before it even gets to market (like the NSX).
