The Toyota FT-86 Will Be "Best in the World" for Car Drifting?

The car FT-86 is a joint effort with Subaru, which engineered the car to Toyota’s performance targets, and will be building both the Toyota and its own version. Subaru didn’t reveal its version during the Tokyo show but instead leaving all the glory to the Toyota. Subaru’s version is expected to have debut release next year.

It is a proper sports-car platform, though the suspension fundamentals are familiar from the Legacy. The engine is a Subaru boxer 2.0-liter four with a Toyota head unit, normally aspirated to keep the price low but with direct gas injection. The expected 160-180 horsepower, which should be able to provide decent performance because the car is light thanks to its compactness which is just 164 inches long and has sub-Audi TT, but with a comparatively stretchy 101-inch wheelbase. It’s also possible it will use aluminum in its creation.
