More details on Subaru’s FT-86 sports car
The future Subaru FT-86 sports car has been caught testing again, this time in Death Valley. And, thankfully, newspy shots always come with new details so every shot we can get is well worth investigation.
Turns out, the future Subaru sports car will be powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter engine, a variation of the engine used in the Impreza WRX STI, and not the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat four engine previously reported. The engine will still produce 260hp which is much more powerful than its Toyota sibling that will only deliver 200 HP. Both models, however, will be offered with a six-speed manual gearbox.
As for its design language, it is rumored that the Subaru sports coupe will take its inspiration from the hatchback, in particular at the front end, but with a more aggressive touch. Both cars will be individualized with their own bumpers, front grilles, and wheels, but they will, however, share similar body panels.
When it does go on sale, prices will range from $30k to $40k.
