HERE are some fresh photos from the Nurburgring where the Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 production prototype is being tested. But this particular test mule loses some camouflage and bares some aggressive bodywork – the front lower bumper, sideskirts, and rear valence. There’s also a high wing spoiler attached, which we had not seen on the previous spied test prototype.
We thought the high wing spoiler might indicate that this is the Subaru 216a (Subaru’s version of the FR-S / FT-86), but the FT-86 nameplate logo still appears on the front quarter panel of the car (cropped zoom on this is below). So the high wing could simply hark back to the days of the Toyota Supra. Despite that, this could possibly still end up being the Subaru version we’re looking at. [Full Set of Photos]
