Default Toyota FT-86 spied testing at Nurburgring

Not sure how many people here are interested in the Toyota FT-86, after all this is a Toyota Prius forum and clearly the FT-86 is a world different than a Prius. Just like the Prius the FT-86 is another milestone for Toyota and the auto world. Check out these FT-86 spy pictures when it was spotted at the Nurburgring.

Our spies have caught the Toyota FT-86 testing in Europe for the first time, proving that the rear-drive coupe is well on the way to production.

Spotted undergoing a handling shake-down at Germany’s Nurbürgring, the finished exterior design (heavily concealed beneath the camouflage paintjob) was overseen by Toyota, while Subaru took care of the rest – including the signature boxer engine, transmission, suspension and brakes.

They’ll both be built on the same Subaru production line, but have slight variations in grilles, wheels, some cabin details and marginally different suspension tuning, but apart from that the cars will be the same.

Sitting on an all-new platform that borrows strongly from the new Impreza and the current Legacy, the FT-86 is powered by a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated boxer engine, and is expected to produce around 200bhp. The unit will sit much lower and closer to the centre of the car than on the current Impreza, “which leads to inspired handling” claims our source.

Channeling the power straight to the rear wheels – a first for Subaru – will be either a six-speed manual or 5-speed automatic gearbox, the newcomer should manage the sprint from zero to 60mph in under 7 seconds, but a quicker turbo version will not be offered.

I cannot wait for this Toyota.. scion.. Subaru... car to be released. Subaru's flat 4 motor + Toyota's handling should equal to some crazy results!
