Hachirok-who? New AE-86 replacement taking shape......

WOW, Toyota has been bland with their brand cars as of late but this thing is SEXY!  Apparently this is the replacement for the famed AE-86 (hence the 86 hint in the concept name) and a dual partnership with Subaru.  Subaru provides a flat-4 from under the hood, so it will be interesting to say the least!  As I said previously, the body lines scream "power over drift me!" with some clean wheel arches and sharp nose.  I see hints of the GTR in the greenhouse (black a-pillars and sloping roof to hatch) as well as the Lexus sharp headlight styling as of late.  It looks alot like the hybrid concept toyota unveiled, just with less sharp and more "real" lol.

UPDATE! - FT-86 will be on Gran Turismo 5 !!!
