Someday we'll get to see the production version of the Toyota FT-86 in dealer showrooms. Someday. That time has yet to arrive, and Toyota is trotting yet another new version of the concept out to the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. According to the automaker, this latest edition is a slightly reworked version of the FT-86 II concept that we've already seen.

The sports coupe heading to Germany, however, has reportedly been lightened up, and is also faster than the previous car. The previous car being another concept, of course. Toyota has put together a teaser video of the updated car, which you can view after the jump.

Dear Toyota... we're ready for this thing to arrive, and we're pretty sure everyone reading along is as well. Bring on the production version!

      I can't even make Duke Nukem jokes about this anymore, because that actually went into production!

      My interest in this, and unfortunately the Subaru version, is now inversly proportial to the number of teasers and concepts.

      The FT-86 was the coolest debut at the NY Auto Show. Despite being a Scion it had one of the largest most enthusiastic crowds around it. This car doesn't need more show car tweaking. It needs to be produced.

      The unicorn appears again. Even I'm sick of these changes already and I was interested in buying this car for my everyday beater. Just get the damn car out already, it's been going on far too long now, it's disgusting.

      I can't wait to see the actual car. And It just makes me sick to see the same old negative comments about Toyota/Lexus from the usual retards (rd necks) on Autoblog. They are always so negative, probably bored or sour about old age.

      The initial FT-86 concept was first shown in 2009. It's almost 2012 and they're going to show another one which means, this thing most likely wouldn't be produced before 2013. Toyota, just stop milking it and produce it already. It's bad enough that your entire line-up is bland and boring and it has been almost a decade since you produced something remotely exciting. People are asking for this(not me) so stop procrastinating and just make it.

        The Scion version should be in production in 2012... it's still less than 3 years since the thing was first revealed, so let's not throw hyperbole around like it's going out of style, shall we? ;)

          I'm with this. I am enjoying seeing the revisions and loved the interview from the Chief Engineer. If you don't like automotive news, don't read Autoblog. If you're only tired of FT-86 related news, skim over it. It's not that hard. I can't believe people are complaining about progress updates an exciting upcoming vehicle.

      This sort of reminds me of how long it took to develop GT5 and that game didn't turn out so well. While Toyota's showing off fancy footage like this, Hyundai's Genesis Coupe is selling like hotcakes (well maybe not, but they're still selling).

      Unlike others on here, I am still excited about this car. It's still a sexy car. Can't knock that.

      I think at this point it would be better to NOT show the car until it's in production trim and ready to go on sale. They've been showing the concepts for so long that it's going to look old before it ever sees a showroom floor....sort of like what happened with the Volt.
