Toyobaru still on track for 2012, Direct Injection


It appears that the joint effort between Toyota and Subaru is still up and running. Their latest concept, codenamed “086A” is the creation of a FR (front engine, rear wheel drive) sports coupe. The car is set to feature a rear wheel drive conversion, powered by Subaru’s infamous 2.0 liter turbocharged boxer engine.

Many speculations have pointed out that this appears to be Toyota’s move to get back into the performance industry, and perhaps building upon the success of the AE86 Corolla.

Many rumors blamed the production delay on the current economic crisis. Although according to Subaru, this is not affecting any production runs. Although what we have learned in recent weeks is that Subaru is going to build the new Toyobaru in their existing Gunma plant in Japan. Apparently, recent plans to construct a new assembly facility have fallen through.

Sources also tell us that the Toyobaru is going to adopt Toyota’s new D-4S direct injection system. As you can imagine, we’re curious to see how this plays out with Subaru 2.0 liter, and if Subaru will eventually adopt direct injection themselves.
