Toyota FT-86 Could Get 305-HP Subaru WRX STI Engine


Previewed in concept form, the upcoming Toyota FT-86 was introduced as a budget sports car inspired by the Corolla AE86 and using a low-powered Subaru boxer engine capable of around 200-hp. Now, reports suggest that with increased development costs Toyota has decided to take the project further up-market, opting instead to run the WRX STI's 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, producing a significant 305-hp.

Partnership on the car, often referred to as the 'Toyobaru' may extend further however, with Toyota and Subaru also looking at ways to team-up on additional future models. In fact, the next-generation Subaru Tirbeca could share a platform with the Toyota Highlander.

Toyota is expected to debut the FT-86 at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of 2011, although some reports have suggested we could get our first glimpse of the production model, badged as the Scion FR-S, at this year's New York Auto Show in April.
