The news about the product of the Toyota-Subaru collaboration has been creating some buzz for quite a while now. Finally, the theories have been confirmed and the questions answered as Toyota unveils the FT86 concept which takes shape as the soul under a modified chassis of a Subaru Impreza.
The FT86 is still on the drawing boards but it will take the spotlight in a concept form at the Tokyo Auto show later this month. The lines of the FT86 will be very similar to the Lexus IS-F and will take shape as a 2+2 sports car.
Toyota has decided to use a four cylinder 2.0L engine from Subaru. The configuration of the powerplant will be for a rear drive vehicle instead of the usual Subaru all wheel drive configuration. The engine will be coupled with a six-speed transmission on manual.
