The first video of the Toyota/ Subaru 2+2 Coupe undergoing mandatory testing at the Nurburgring.

Development of a production version of the Toyota FT-86 Concept is coming along nicely. These spy pictures show the car testing with a chassis platform mule for the first time. Toyota will apparently rely on Subaru's boxer power to get it going.

The FT-86 Concept was announced with a 2.0-litre boxer motor making 118kW (160hp). It is speculated the engine could be tuned as high as 200 hp, a 25% increase over its normal output.

A couple of sporting concepts from Toyota have been flung upon the public's face over the past two years or so. Most notable was the FT-HS Concept of 2007 which had a 3.5-litre V6 Hybrid powertrain, a projected power figure of 294kW (400hp) and a 0 - 100km/h acceleration time of around 4 seconds. We highly recommend close conformity to that model.
