Arrow More proof of FT-86 Boxer engine appears in logo

The upcoming FT-86 has always been speculated with a Boxer engine, but Car and Driver has now uncovered even more proof -- this logo for the Toyota version.

The logo shows a cross section of a boxer engine, featuring one horizontally opposed piston on each side and a highly stylized number 86 inserted in the center where the crankshaft would be. It also gives an indication that Toyota is planning to use "86" in the production car’s name in some capacity.

At first, I was like "WTH is that?", then I went like "Eight-Six?". This Logo looks badass, hope the report and the logo are true.

So am I the only one surprised to hear this part of the article more than that emblem?

Both the Subie and Toyota will feature aluminum body panels hung on a steel structure...
Where they got that info... or am I the only one that didn't know that?

Could be in the model designation and not necessarily the name. Either way, I think it looks badass.

Doubt it will be in the name in the U.S., after all it is going to be a Scion.

In which case the only proper name would be be Scion aE.

Love the logo though.
