When it comes to the production version of the Toyota FT-86, we have heard all kinds of rumors. The latest rumor going around the mill reports that the officially unveiling has been delayed to 2013.
Today, we found new details on the future car. Get this, the production version might not be called the FT-86. Instead it seems Toyota has marked the FR-S name, with FR standing for front-rear (as in, front-engine, rear-wheel drive) and the S will stand for sports car. Frankly, we don’t care what they call it as long as they get it done already.
The FT-86 is a compact, rear wheel drive sports concept powered by a 2.0 Liter horizontally opposed, naturally aspirated four cylinder gasoline burning engine supplied by Subaru. In its non boosted form, the flat four make a maximum output of 150 HP, but the automaker is toying around with the idea of a more powerful super charged version depending on consumer demands.
