Exclamation Subaru Coupe (version of FR-S/FT-86) Spotted Inside and Out! + New Interior Pic

Here's are the best photos yet of the Subaru Coupe version of the FR-S / FT-86 and the first interior photo! It appears very similar to the Scion/Toyota model but apparently with a different front-end design (as it's almost nearly covered for a reason).

The interior is also partially covered but it's clear that there's red stitching on the steering wheel and paddle shifters.

A great sign is that it's following the STI for testing / evaluation purposes

The Subaru coupe is expected to be RWD with 2+2 seating.


Updated with better look at interior:

FR-S / FT-86 photos for comparison

Sweet, thanks for posting Hachi! :happy0180:

So the black wheel version is the Subie and the one with the body kit is the Toyota version? Now we have both varients testing... very interesting!

Also I totally was right on the door handle! Before the spy pics of these test cars I made a door handle just like that (just different position).


Toyota/Subaru, you own me more info

Following an STI? Hmmm could it mean that we're getting an STI version of the FT86? YES!

Am I missing something?

What confirmation is there to this that it is the Subaru version?

No flat bottom steering wheel? Flappy paddles? Bah.

I dig their antenna topper though.

It's following an STI? Would Toyota make it follow that?

So from these pictures we can assume the Subaru version will be automatic and the FR-S will be manual?

Sorry, I had to.
