This bright blue backside belongs to the Subaru BRZ, Subie's variant of the Scion FR-S — or Toyota FT-86, depending on where you live. It's the right end to show given it's Subaru's first modern RWD sports car.
Here's the first shots AutoGuide took of a semi-translucent FT-86-based Subieyota coupe — which we've been told repeatedly is the "Rear-Wheel Drive Sports Car Technology Concept." It's not stopping some from saying it's All-Wheel-Drive. It's not. But here's why some think it is.
The "Subaru Rear-Wheel Drive Sports Car Technology Concept" a.k.a. the Subieyota a.k.a. the Toyobaru a.k.a FT-86 (speculatively sketched here) will be unveiled with a "horizontally-opposed Subaru boxer engine" in early March at the Geneva Auto Show.
The upcoming rear-wheel-drive Toyota FT-86 was developed in collaboration with Subaru, and it's been said all along the car would sport a 2.0-liter flat-four. We guess if this purported FT-86 logo is accurate, doubters should put those worries to rest.
The Toyota FT-86 may not be the vehicle to save Toyota from itself, as sources report the vehicle will be branded in the U.S. as the Scion FR-S, cost $25,000, and get a boring redesign. But wait, it's worse!
