2011 Toyota FT-86 - Intel

Back From The Dead, Due To Drop In November 2011

Nov 16, 2010

The fate of Toyota's FT-86 is as hard to track as an Alex Ovechkin slap shot. With all the back and forth hoopla of it's coming, it's in limbo and it's cancelled Toyota held a pow-wow regarding its G Sports performance line-up of tuner cars and the subject of the FT-86 was a natural progression of the proceedings. The pendulum has swung and a November 2011 deliver date is the new gold standard.

The meeting also shed light, or fed the rumor mill depending on how you look at it, on other aspects of the car. There will be three model trims and two engines which leads us to wonder, will the second one be a STI EJ25 variant? The top-of-the-line model is said to be turbocharged, which bodes well as Toyota has no turbocharged offering of its own at present. But would Subaru let it's iconic powerplant sit under a hood with a Toyota badge? How far is this 'cooperative project' going? The middle brother, aspiration unknown, is slated to check in around $28,000. A price point that is not so favorable for the U.S. tuning scene, which likes under $25k and hopes for under $20k. There is much yet to be revealed with the FT-86 and we will keep our noses to the grindstone.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
