The official unveiling of the production FT-86 sportscar will take place at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show in December, but Toyota must want a global unveiling somehow, because they’ve just announced the FT-86 World Report App, which allows you to snap a few shots or the car as you spot it and then upload them.
The application is available for download for free at the Apple iTunes Store, and here’s what Toyota has to say: “Let’s shoot the images of FT-86 driving around the world and post them to “FT-86 World Report” with this APP! FT-86 is now driving around you! Please shoot cool images and keep on posting! Your image will be introduced as a “report” in the program on the interactive movie web site, “FT-86 World Report”.”
Th app can be downloaded in English, Japanese and Chinese and is good for the iPhone4 and iPodTouch4.
A very short video of what they had in mid when they introduced the app has also been uploaded to Toyotaglobal Youtube page, featuring a young rasta-haired man and his surprise at the FT-86... that’s not really the target audience for the car, is it Toyota?
Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
