Cool cars from the Tokyo Motor Show

From sporty coupes you'll soon see on the highway, to wild concept cars featuring augmented reality, Japan's big car show has something for everybody.

Toyota GT-86

Japan's big car show opens this week and, as usual, a few interesting new models and some of the world's strangest concept cars are on display.

The Toyota GT-86 is one model that will actually go into production. This rear-wheel-drive coupe, developed in conjunction with Subaru, will be sold in the U.S. as the Scion FR-S.

Despite its aggressive looks, the GT-86 isn't all about power. By today's standards, the car's 197 horsepower is relatively modest. Instead, Toyota boasts of the GT-86's light weight and good balance.
