    I'm not sure SFR will be coming to LAAS. If it's a big hit in TAS, it might hit NYIAS next year... but not sure it's gonna be displaying this year.
    Balance is everything

    I just hope that they don't show us like 3 very different concepts before the production model like they did with the FT86 I/II and FR-S concepts. It was a constant guessing game what the FR-S was actually going to end up looking like.

    The version teased already looks very close to a production ready model. They're showing a lot more detail than most early iterations of a concept, and it looks far too tame to be such either. I have a feeling not much will have changed once these start rolling off the assembly lines.

    Hm... personally, I liked that they had MkI, Mk1.5, MkII & MkIII FT-86 Concepts, but that's just me.

    Totally cool with that.

    My local (Norway) Toyota insider reports that this will most likely be an Asia only car and not designed with EU regulations in mind at all.
    He also concedes that those decisions are not made firmly yet.

    The South Africa section of FT86 Club is large so I would have to presume they have sold many there. Now central or north Africa probably not so many.

    Ok, yeah, my experiences are from north and central Africa only. It's a huge continent.
    - I've crossed the equator on foot twice in Africa, btw :-)

    If I was you, I would take that info as a grain of salt. Not til all the official ppl announce it at the auto show.

    If they even make an actual commitment beyond the whole "we might", "if we do" or "there is a possibility" statements. This concept has been around for a while so I would expect to see a strong statement if it is indeed coming to N.A. and Europe. If the statement is wishy washy or double talk then it may not be a good sign.

    Oh sure. I've been around the block enough times to regard anything but a signed contract as rumors ;-)
