The FT-86 ("86" pronounced "hachi roku"), a compact rear-wheel-drive sports car, provides driving joy and excitement.

* Compact design gives driver greater control, while body's lightness and low center of gravity allow racecar-like handling
* Both power and environmental performance provided by 2-liter boxer engine and light body
* Flash Red body color contains hint of blue; interior expresses modern feel with minimal coverage of the highly refined structural components evoking enthusiasm for cruising

I like this thing. The interior is kinda meh, but that's a concept anyways.
Subaru's version should be even better.

Lol what?

Should've taken the Camry V6, turned it 90 deg and shoved it in that thing.

Any guesses on curb weight of this "compact design"?

the celica had a great suspension and no chrome. unfortunately the drivetrain wasn't all that great, but they could get it right this time around.

mid-20s is crazy for this, especially considering how small this is and how simple the drivetrain is. should be under 20

Fuel economy should be pretty good, with a light body and direct-injected 2.0 na motor (yes, that's right the first gas subie motor with direct injection)

I agree! There is NO way a 2-liter boxer engine can be any fun at all!

DI should boost the hp of the 2.0 (but not the torque)
