Official: Subaru BRZ Coupe (FT-86/FR-S) Will Be Released in Spring 2012

And now for some confirmation from Subaru regarding the release date of its upcoming sports coupe. The company has recently released an official press release promising four new models by 2016.

One of the models mentioned was their “jointly developed rear-wheel drive sports car” (the Subaru sports coupe version of the Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86), which “will be launched in spring 2012.” This represents the first official date confirmation from Subaru.

Although several iterations of the Toyota FT-86 concepts have been shown, and the Scion FR-S concept has made its show debut, Subaru has only shown a skeletal/chassis/internals concept – the Subaru Boxer Sports Car Architecture at the Geneva show in Feb.

Both the Toyota FT-86 and the Subaru model are expected to make their debuts in December at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.
