Toyota and Subaru will launch their jointly-developed sport coupe in late 2011. Fuji Heavy Industries is the parent company of Subaru. Testing is almost complete and the design team is making their final adjustments. The vehicle is expected to be “very comfortable and fuel-efficient”. It features a low center of gravity that will instill driver confidence.

It was earlier said that the Toyota-Subaru joint venture model will be outfitted with a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine with 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS).  It was also previously reported to feature a six-speed manual transmission, which will send power to the rear-wheels.

The styling is expected to be virtually identical to the Toyota FT-86 but this one will have a unique grille, modified bumpers, and different wheels.
