Spy photographers have captured a few images of Subaru’s version of Toyota FT-86. The prototype is reportedly undergoing hot-weather testing in an American desert.
And what has been glimpsed right now is a curious mix of camouflage and spare parts patched in with duct tape.
Understandably, this visual makes it quite impossible to zone in on what the production model will finally look like, but based on previous renderings, this model is likely to be a striking offering from Subaru.
As per previous information, the coupe will inhabit a shortened frame of the Legacy platform, and will have the rear suspension of the Impreza.
The FT-86 will feature a 2.0-liter boxer engine – naturally aspirated; and reports say the Subaru model will be using a 2.0-liter turbo with 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS).
This will be paired to a six-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive. The model will be on sale by 2013 and reports say the base price will be at a minimum of $25,000.
