Motor Trend: Toyota FT-86 to be Powered by Subaru STI Engine

Some exciting FT-86 news (if true) today. According to Motor Trend, as part an overall plan to more closely converge Toyota’s products with Subaru, the upcoming FT-86 will be powered by the 305hp / 290 lb-ft Subaru STI 2.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine, rather than the less powerful Subaru engine originally planned for the FT-86.

If true, this would mean that the FT-86 should share the same powerplant as the Subaru version of the FT-86.
