Toyota Makes FT-86 Details Official

We've had a pretty good idea of what Toyota has planned for the FT-86 for a while now, but the latest report in one of the more excruciatingly long roll-outs in history is that Toyota has official decided on some key details of the car. The 2.0-liter boxer engine will be provided by Subaru, but the D-4S injection system will be Toyota-sourced. The transmission will have six speeds and you will have the option of either paddle shifters or a traditional three-pedal setup.

Power will be sent to the back wheels by way of a limited-slip differential. The Scion-badged concept which was recently shown at the New York Auto Show will most likely be the form that the US model takes, but it is as yet unclear whether the rest of the world will simply get the same car with a Toyota badge, or if their model will look more like the FT-86 II concept which was shown in Geneva.
