Toyota to Get ‘G’ Performance Division

Toyota to Get ‘G’ Performance Division

Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept AutoTribute
With so many recalls, Toyota has had a rough start to the new year. But it’s not all bad news for the word’s number one automaker. Following up on a range of sporty looking models with a G logo (such as the Toyota FT-86 G Sports Concept) that were shown at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Show, a report by Straightline claims those concept models hint at a feature sub-brand from Toyota.

The G department, which will start operations in mid-2010, will be Toyota’s in-house tuning division. It will be responsible for enhancing Toyota vehicle’s exterior, interior, mechanical components and the suspension. It’s probably safe to assume that the first Toyota to get the G treatment will be the upcoming FT-86, which will launch in the later part of next year.

You know what’s has been an oxymoron? Sporty and Toyota. With the G lineup, that will no longer be the case.
