The future Subaru FT-86 sports car has been caught testing again, this time at the Nurburgring in Germany. Even though the driver was aggresively avoiding the camera of our spy photographer he was able to get these shots.
Rumour has it, 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 rumoured. The engine will still produce 280hp 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, it is hinted that the Subaru sports coupe will take its design features from the hatchback, in particular at the front end, but with a more aggressive detailing. Both cars will be unique in styling due to their own bumpers, front grilles, and wheels, but they will, however, share similar body panels and obviously the chassis.
It is difficult to speculate on the detailing differences as it is still under heavy camouflage.
Expect some more photos trackside later on today….
