Toyota FT-86 to be renamed as FR-S? | Rpmgo.com



The Toyota FT-86 is definitely one of our favorite recent concepts, largely because it promises to revive the heritage of the AE-86, the Celica or the Supra, and will bring back some fun-to-drive action in the Toyota lineup.

Still, all of the rumors we heard up until now haven’t been that joyful, with news of price increases and delays appearing on the web.

Now, we can speculate on another piece of information, as the Japanese company has just registered a new trademark: FR-S.

Voices are already saying that this might be the new and production-ready name for the FT-86. As you may remember, fans were hoping that the Celica badge might be revived when the concept was launched, but Toyota execs were reserved.

Could this be the new name for the Toyota’s rear-wheel drive coupe concept? We can’t say for sure, but at least it doesn’t sound all that bad.
