Subaru version of FT-86 will receive an AWD system and around 250 hp

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The collaboration has yet to issue final plans but here are several details on the powertrain and chassis of the Toyota FT-86 showcar, the joint Toyota-Subaru project that was built by Subaru.

Inside Line has discovered a Subaru variant of this car that will arrive in 2011. It will share the Toyota FT-86's naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-4, but it's likely that the output will be raised to about 250 horsepower.

On the other hand, Toyota's car is speculated to have 200 horsepower. Subaru's version is equipped with all-wheel drive, which means that it will be heavier and would require more power. Both cars will be outfitted with a six-speed manual gearbox.

Due to a stretched platform, Subaru's car will be slightly larger than the Toyota. Pricing for the Subaru is expected to start from $30,000, which is about $5,000 higher than the Toyota. That's because the Subaru is larger, has extra power, and has all-wheel drive.

This leads then to the conclusion that the two coupes are unlikely to directly compete with each other. Encroaching onto the market of the Subaru Impreza WRX also won't be a problem.
