More rumors are trickling out about a purported hopped-up STI version of everyone's current favorite rear-wheel-drive Subaru, the BRZ.
The graphics look like something out of an old version of Grand Theft Auto. There are no sexy babes, or dancing hamsters, or dubstep. And yet the newest Subieyota ad is the best we've seen in years.
Toyota's long-missing sports car was just revealed moments ago in Los Angeles for a crowd of journalists and enthusiasts. But they're not calling it a Toyota, they're calling it the Scion FR-S and they just announced it's going on sale next spring. UPDATED!
The Scion FR-S / Toyota FT-86 gets talked about as a Mustang Killer and competition for the Hyundai Genesis and other muscle cars. It really isn't, although maybe the Subaru BRZ will be. But new specs from FT86club make it clear this car will actually compete directly with the Mazda Miata/MX-5, even if it's never…
It's official. The Subieyota has a name. Subaru's new rear-wheel drive sports car, currently under joint development with Toyota Motor Corporation, will be named "SUBARU BRZ". "BRZ" stands for "Boxer engine", "Rear-wheel drive" and "Zenith."
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.
You can just make out the details of this Imprezaish Subaru concept under a sheet. It looks a little like the Hybrid Tourer Concept.
W thought the still photos of the Subaru Coupe on the Nürburgring were pretty cool, and now the folks over at ft86club have grabbed some video of the car in action.
The Toyota FT-86 Concept is an exciting step forward for the vanilla automaker, blending cues from the past (the Toyota AE86) with hints of ToMoCo future. We dissect the design below to see how they've accomplished this delicate feat.
