Although Toyota has refused to confirm the credibility of these photos, internal sources suggested the pictured vehicle is real. Furthermore, the rear-wheel-drive coupé stays faithful to the recent FT-86 II Concept.
The FT-86 harks back to the rear-wheel-drive '80's Corolla AE86, so expect a 200bhp (203PS/149kW) 2.0 litre flat-four Boxer petrol engine with a limited slip-differential. To aid fuel economy and make the car fun to drive, the FT-86 will weight 200kg (441lbs) less than the Scirocco, at 1,100kg (2,526lbs).
When European sales start next Summer, prices will kick-off at £20k (€22,768).
