The G Sports concepts are aimed at customers who have a strong desire to own a unique vehicle by offering them both personalized interior and exterior pieces that is designed to give the driver a sports car experience. As opposed to traditional manufacturers who might have outsourced a job like this, Toyota has kept the G Sports line an in house project.

On the inside the FT-86 G Sports Concept gets a pair of Recaro racing buckets while a sport tuned suspension places a special focus on “driving seasoning” in order to make the new FT-86 as fun to drive as the old Hachi Roku.
