Subaru’s interpretation of the Toyota/Subaru collaboration is getting polished up for its Frankfurt Auto Show debut in just a few days, but these new spy shots are giving us a glimpse as to what we can expect. Don’t expect a production model, though, Subaru is dishing out a concept before unveiling the production form later this year.

The Subaru BRZ Concept - BRZ stands for "boxer engine," "rear-wheel drive," and "zenith" - will obviously share its technology with the Toyota FT-86, but according to the two companies, each of these models will feature an independent design.

The BRZ will be powered by a newly developed 2.0 liter four-cylinder boxer engine with direct injection that will be connected to either a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox. There have been no details released as to the engine’s output, but rumors suggest it will go up to about 300 HP for the STI version.

The production BRZ/FT-86 will follow in December at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show. Its first deliveries are planned for early/mid 2012 - depending on the market. Prices will start from about $25K.

Wow, its great to see that even Subaru has join an entry for the Frankfurt Motor Show. I was captivated with the speed performance of the previous vehicle. I was thinking if they are going to reveal the whole detail on the actual show.
