In Toyota’s new ad, diecast Celicas and 2000GTs inspire the FT-86

What are you thankful for this holiday season? We, for one, are grateful that after teasing us with years of speculation and countless concept iterations, Toyota is finally ready to reveal the production FT-86 at the Tokyo Motor Show on December 3rd. In advance of that unveiling, it has released a new ad called “Devoted to Innovation.” This trailer for the FT-86 is one of those inspired-kids-playing-with-toy-cars-grow-up-to-design-real-cars stories, but interestingly every single one of those toy cars is a classic Toyota of some sort. Does anyone know where we get our hands on one of those Celicas or hachirokus? That’s something we’d be thankful for. Also, check out the FT-86 “Live Website” installment at Shinjuku Station.

    I have seen this, my question is… Did anyone see an AE86 in the background ?
    It is a cool ad however.
