Cool New Subaru 216a / FT-86 Spy Photos Reveals Hatchback Coupe

It's been a while since we've seen a test car for the new Toyota/Subaru coupe, but a new mule has just surfaced here in the United States and for the first time ever we can confirm its hatchback configuration!

Look for the Subaru version of the FT-86 to debut at the Geneva Motor Show early next month!

Is that dual exhaust or just dual pipes? Or is it just the same thing?

I believe that what we see is single exhaust with 2 exits.

Perhaps that's how they'll separate the Subaru and Toyota models. Subaru gets hatch and Toyota gets saloon. It could be the most distinguishing features outside the front end branding (headlights, grill, badge etc)

This is great news.

I'm curious to why it still looks so much like the old monster mule made of old impreza and legacy parts.
Being so close to production, don't manufacturers usually move onto a closer-to-production test car?

Maybe they knew what it was going to look like for all this time. Or, more likely, they're still just testing components.

1: I really hope its a hatch
2: This doesn't look like a hatch at all
3: This is still a mule..so its probably not even close to what its going to be

Yup, we all want it. The hatch looks more practical too.

They might have just left the moldings/striping of the rear window, so it might not be a hatch just cus there is a gap around the rear window. That being said it does look like the rear window comes up with the boot so who knows
Purely for strength vs weight I'd prefer a coupe

Is there firm proof yet that the Toyo version will actually be Scion badged?

Also, in the comments people are talking about a 2013 model, it got pushed back AGAIN?

I have a feeling the subaru version will be quirky and unnatractive.

Which is exactly what I like about Subarus. Just as long as the car isn't HIDEOUS!

I hope it means the car comes stateside.

But it isn't definitive just b/c they're testing it here. The VW Scirocco was tested in the states but those b@stards didn't bring it over.

That's what makes a Subaru Subaru, uniqueness. Like our buddy said, as long as it's not ugly, I can accept that.

Yeah I honestly think Subaru execs despise good looking cars. I've never seen a Subie that makes me go "WOW!!!" that's a gorgeous looking car. I believe Scion/Toyota will be the sleek,sexy, low slunger that will make me go WOW!!!

Sleek/Sharp/Low slung>>>Quirky.
