Subaru FT-86 Version Still Alive and Coming Confirms Automotive News

Subaru continues to maintain that their version of the FT-86 is still in the works and will come to market. The following just came from Automotive News.

Here are Subaru’s product plans:

Sporty coupe: The lightweight two-door being developed with Toyota will give Subaru a needed image vehicle. The exterior of Subaru’s version will differ from the Toyota. The rear-drive coupe is expected to be available with either Subaru’s 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine or the 2.5-liter turbocharged engine from the Impreza STI. It is unclear whether the car will be a 2012 or 2013 model.

Currently, all Subarus have all-wheel drive. It isn’t known whether the new sports car will have that feature.

So it’s not new info, but like the recent spy photos, it’s more support that the Subaru FT-86 model equivalent continues development towards eventual production.  [DISCUSS HERE]
