With the Japanese version of the Toyota FT86 presentation scheduled for the Tokyo Motor Show later on in the year, Japanese magazines have been speculating on a lot of details about the car that could single-handedly save the entry-level sports car market in Japan. One rumor that most seem to be agreeing on is that the successor to the legendary hachiroku will be sold for ¥1.99-million. With the strength the Yen has been enjoying as of late the converted price of $26,000 might seem pricey buy we can expect the Scion version of the car to be much closer to the $20,000 mark. If this is so, that will make the FT86 more affordable than the entry level Mazda Roadster in Japan, which sells for a ¥2.33-million ($30,500). This is one car everyone is waiting for!
