What the Japan? Toyota GT 86Q Midget Compact [Video]
At the recent Toyota Engineering Society Festival 2012, an interesting new version of the Toyobaru turned up. No it’s not a hybrid or turbocharged version, it’s a strange little concept called the Toyota 86Q.
Built for no other reason other than to be funny, the 86Q looks like a sportscar that suffers from dwarfism. In fact, the title of the story is half correct, since this is a light commercial truck called the Daihatsu Midget III.
The engineers at TES 2012 strip the old body and engine off the Midget in a well under a minute and rapidly cage it into a fake sportscar.
