    Post Trademarked: Toyota FT-86 Official Name Could be the Number "86"?

    Thanks to tipster and fellow member "lookitschloe", we now have a twist to the plot of the FT-86's future name. Toyota has officially filed for the trademark name "86". Yes, thats a number. Just three weeks ago we reported the FR-S trademark filing by Toyota.

    Oddly enough the use of 86 is more commonly known as "to leave, or getting rid of something". We will see where this leaves us now that both patents were filed back to back. Will the car be FR-S or 86, or maybe FR-86? As always we must sit back and wait for Toyota. However official word from Toyota has to be imminent.

    They are just convering all their bases. When word comes of it's official name then the car would have to be production ready... Don't hold your breathe.

    I don't think they would be dumb enough to name the car just 86. FR-s > FR-86

    Just something interesting, Toyota's other trademarks of actual cars are identical to recent filings, FR-S and 86.

    "Automobiles and structural parts thereof."
