It was only a matter of time before someone decided to take the Toyota FT-86 concept and give it the Subaru make over. The FT-86 concept is the basis of a small and affordable rear-wheel drive sports car being co-produced by car giant Toyota and all-wheel drive kings Subaru.
We’ve all had to ask whether or not Subaru will make at least one of the variants of their model all-wheel drive, put the EJ20T or EJ25T engine from the Impreza WRX or STI in it and if that being the case, where do we sign? We want two!
Japan’s Best Car Magazine has put up these rendered speculations of what the STI version of the car may look like and frankly we’ve been starring at them all morning trying to press the non-existent buy it now button.
The FT-86 should go on sale over the next two years in both Toyota and Subaru guise. It’s still unclear as to how the two manufacturers will differentiate their models and whether or not Australia will see the Subaru and Toyota models together. Some have suggested that Subaru Australia may not bring their version of the car here unless it comes in AWD.
