Subaru BRZ will get more power than the Toyota FT-86, maybe a convertible version too

Slated to start selling next summer, the new Subaru BRZ coupé is expected to have the lowest centre of gravity of any production car. The BRZ has a rear-wheel-drive configuration. This indicates that Subaru's compact 2.0-litre Boxer engine could be mounted even lower in the chassis than what’s typically possible in the conventional four-wheel-drive layout of the manufacturer. The vehicle is co-developed with Toyota but Subaru did the most of its engineering.

Nonetheless, the BRZ's flat-four unit will make use of a Toyota direct fuel-injection system. Its power outputs are different.

It has a Subaru-spec ECU that results to an output of “less than 300bhp,” compared with the 200bhp output of the FT-86. Subaru hasn’t released many details about the car’s final specs.

Leaked: Toyota FT-86 shows up in Modellista catalogue

Once again, the debut of a new car has been ruined thanks to some leaked photos. This time we are talking about the Toyota FT-86 as the first photos with the car emerged today and made quite a buzz. Thanks to a catalog from Modellista, Toyota’s in-house tuning arm, the car has been unveiled. We have to admit that the front end has something from the concept version but the rear is completely different and this is a good thing.

Although we have no details, we do know that the FT-86 will be powered by a flat four unit featuring a Toyota direct fuel-injection system delivering around 200 hp.

There are no details regarding the performances of the vehicle but we expect to see a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 6 seconds.

Toyota FT-86 may receive the Celica name

Early next year, Toyota’s new FT-86 rear-drive coupe will start selling but it won’t have a single global identity since it’s likely to get a name change. For the U.S. market, it will be offered under Toyota’s Scion sub-brand. This means that it can be named Celica in Europe and Japan. According to a source, the “86” in the name is expected to be retained since the model was designed to pay homage to Toyota’s classic AE86 Corolla. Toyota and Subaru collaborated to produce this rear-drive coupe.

To make the car as light as possible, it will feature a version of Subaru’s flat-four ‘boxer’ engine. Toyota wanted this layout to enable it to keep the super-low nose of the FT-86 but reportedly, the design team has had a difficult time of getting the early styling to meet pedestrian impact standards.

Later this year, the final production version of the FT-86 will publicly debut at the Tokyo motor show. It will go on sale in the UK sometime in the first half of 2012.

Toyota FT-86 will carry Subaru’s 2.0-liter 4-cylinder boxer engine

There’s a significant amount of interest and excitement surrounding Toyota’s FT-86 sports coupe. Fans won’t be in for a long wait as Toyota has revealed that the model will start selling in 2012. The production car is powered by a Subaru’s new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder boxer engine that uses Toyota's D-4S technology.

It features both direct injection and port injection. While Toyota has yet to reveal its performance figures, it claims that the D4-S technology leads to a boost in horsepower and torque without compromising fuel consumption and environmental performance.

The latest version of the 2.0-liter unit is seen in the newest Impreza models, where it has an output of 148 hp and 145 lb-ft (197 Nm), which is 22 hp lower than the outgoing 2.5-liter.

Toyota announced today that it will bring the second version of the FT-86 sports concept, in March at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. Dubbed Toyota FT-86 II Concept, the new car will give the clearest indication yet of the final design for Toyota's next sports car. As you may know already, Toyota has a tradition of over 50 years in creating exciting sports cars, and this new concept embodies the company's reborn passion for sports car driving.

Regarding the first version of the concept, the FT-86, this car was inspired by old sports cars, including the Celica, MR2, Supra and Corolla AE86 models. The FT-86 was powered by a 2.0-liter petrol unit with a six-speed manual gearbox.

Although we didn’t have any details regarding the total output of the engine, Toyota says that the small powerplant is capable to deliver accessible performance and enhanced driving pleasure.
