Default Toyota/Subaru FR sports car code-named 086A, will include direct injection

Toyota/Subaru FR sports car code-named 086A, will include direct injection

by Damon Lavrinc on Feb 18th 2009 at 2:27PM


Over the past few months, rumors have circulated that the joint venture between Toyota and Subaru to develop an affordable, front-engine, rear-wheel-drive coupe has been delayed. ToMoCo president, Akio Toyoda, sought to address those concerns at last month's Tokyo Auto Salon, and according to Toyota's new overlord, development is still underway.

Toyoda told the assembled masses that the new FR sports car is an essential part of the automaker's "rejuvenation" efforts to bring younger people into the fold, and a large part of that is price. The coupe is still expected to cost around 2,000,000 yen (a little over $21,000 US) and is set to go on sale in 2012. According to Toyoda, the production postponement has nothing to do with the delay in construction of the Toyota/Subaru factory, where the two-door was due to be built next year. Instead, Toyoda claims that the hold up is due to the adaption of Toyota's new D-4S direct injection system for the flat-four engine. Currently, the FR sports car is codenamed "086A," and for those of you schooled in the world of Hachirokus, that spells good things to come.

I have a feeling this is unlikely. AWD and turbo would really cannibalize WRX sales due to the low entry price of the 086A. I think it will stay FR. I am hoping on turbo though, I don't think a NA direct injection flat 4 will be very quick.

:O I want the direct injection engine! Just think of how much fuel saving that can provide us.

hopefully the design will have wheel wells that can tuck 295s with minimal to no effort.

18x10 yes please!

Direct Injection on a turbo boxer must be a good thing, but I suspect everything is going throttle-by-wire so this will not be an exception? DI will allow the compression ratio to be closer to NA boxer range (10:1)?

Nice looking car. It should do well if they keep it in the low 20s.
Looks like it would be a blast to drive.

The real question is will it say "Toyota" or "Toyoda" on the back?
If it looks anything like that drawing It's got my vote.

Very true. By the time it comes out AMS would have a pretty nice built up 4B11 for it

Yeah, that's about right.

How is this thing a Subaru again? Other than being built by the same Brazilians in the same factory?
