The Toyota FT-86 is being joint developed by Toyota and Subaru, and so everyone has believed that the Toyota and Subaru variants would only have subtle styling differences. However, reports say that the differences will be much more substantial.
Toyota’s version will be powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder “boxer” engine putting out 200hp, and the power will be sent to the rear wheels. Subaru’s version will reportedly use their symmetrical all-wheel-drive system, linked to a 250hp version of the same engine. It should also have a longer wheelbase.
These differences mean that the Subaru version will likely be positioned and priced higher than the Toyota so that they don’t directly compete with each other. The Subaru should cost around $30,000 (USD), while the Toyota should cost around $25,000.
