Gotta love those leaked documents! Whether this document was actually leaked by a stealth insider or Toyota is trying to get ahead of Subaru in the FT-86 game, the new Toyota FT-86’s (or Scion FR-S as it will be sold in the US market) specifications have been secretly released to the world. This comes about two months ahead of the official Subaru and Toyota/Scion debuts in December at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The new FT-86 will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a total output of 197 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 150 lb-ft of torque at 6,600 rpm, as well as a fuel economy of 31.52 mpg. The numbers are a bit disappointing, but what’s impressive is the car’s total weight: only 2,662 lbs.
The FT-86/FRS will be offered in two versions: High Spec and Low Spec. The top version has front LED lights, a leather steering wheel, 6 audio speakers (low spec has 2 speakers), a white rev counter with shift light, and sport pedals. The High Spec model also has "smart entry and start" and 17" wheels. The Low spec model gets 16" wheels.
That’s all she wrote for now, but stay tuned as the official debut in Tokyo gets closer and Subaru and Toyota get more anxious to reveal their secrets!
