    Anybody Know about the Subaru FR-S/Toyota FT-86

    I've been hearing about this joint venture between Subaru and Toyota on a car that is supposed to be inspired by the classic 80's era AE86 Toyota Levin/Sprinter Trueno or Corolla GTS here in the USA (84-87). Subaru is responsible for the engine/drive-train and Toyota is doing all the other stuff. Talking with the Scion guys, it's supposed to be released here in the US as the Scion FR-S. Anyway... just find it interesting since it is a coupe and RWD and is supposed to have three base levels with the mid-to-upper levels having turbocharged Subaru boxer engines

    nope, not quite.

    The plan for MY12: rwd coupe with the N/A FB20 engine.

    There will not be a turbo FB engine until AT LEAST MY13. This particular car *may* get an awd system some time in the future (it's been hinted), but not yet.
