i totally agree with the toyota front look better than the subbie, but i kinda like the subbie's back kinda looks like a cross between subaru and genisis coupe.
cant wait for final product

Can't wait for this to actually come out. when the FT86 does come out, I'd be hard pressed to figure out which to buy. Toyota or Subaru version???

i remember reading a few months back that the subaru version may not make it to north america because cost restraints make awd too expensive, and a 2wd subaru dosen't fit in the awd profile subaru promotes here?

If it comes, the Subaru. Why would you buy a Toyota with a Subaru engine when you can get a Subaru with a Subaru engine?

I don't get this car. The AE86 was amazing in every right. Simple, light, peppy and cheap. When ever these come out (Subaru and/or Toyota) will not be remotely similar at all. I have only driven (gave it the beans, cornered hard, braked hard etc = driven) a Subaru once, and while fast, it didn't seem peppy. Ranting a bit I guess but I think Toyota is going to drop the ball. How hard is it to make a reasonable powered I6 like before or a high reving 4cly like Honda?

Image under a RWD set up and 3000 lb chassis with a STi engine which is capable of 300 hp stock. I can see a 500+ hp FT86 in the near future !
here's the news feed from ft-86 forum...rumours are rumours but here they are:

Subaru FT-86 Version Could Have 60hp More Than Toyota FT-86

A new report coming from Autocar claims that the Subaru version of the FT-86 version could be powered by up to 60 horsepowers more than the Toyota FT-86. How does this compute?

Well, the Subaru version is speculated to feature a version of the Impreza STi’s turbocharged motor with approximately 260hp, compared to the FT-86’s retuned Subaru 2.0L flat four motor good for approximately 200hp.

See INSIDE for the full details of this bit of news/rumor, and to discuss.

a flat four in a toyota... seriously guys.


why not a high revving 4cyl. its not like toyota doesnt have the resourses to develop one. they do have yamaha after all...

2.0, DOHC, VVTi, 16V or even 20V, four throttle set up w/ drive by wire.

how hard is that..?

It's not hard, just not as cost-efficient as using a motor that's already there. Plus they can have a lower-priced coupe from Toyota and more premium coupe with the Subaru version. Obviously if there is not a huge price difference then the Subaru will pillage sales.
