The Japanese automaker started to confirm specifications for the production version FT-86, a coupe which will combine Toyota's D-4S injection system with Subaru's boxer engine architecture.

The horizontally opposed 2.0-litre boxer engine fitted on the 2012 Toyota FT-86 will use direct injection technology combined with port injection, and even though its output was not specified, the results promise increased horsepower without compromising fuel consumption and emission levels.

This flat four-cylinder engine will be coupled to either a 6-speed manual transmission with short gears, or a 6-speed automatic with steering wheel mounted paddles, with power being sent to the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential.

As we've mentioned before, the 2012 Toyota FT-86 has been developed around the idea that a front-engine rear-wheel drive coupe would offer stability

and manoeuvrability combined with quick response times. Also the fact that the FT-86 makes use of light weight materials and has a low centre of gravity will result in a balanced car with compact dimensions and a good power to weight ratio.
