The 'Toyobaru' coupe has been spied testing at the Nurburgring.
The test mule, which is being co-developed by Toyota and Subaru, appears to have a development front and rear end for the production car, grafted on to a Subaru Impreza saloon body. This suggests that the development work is being carried out by Subaru.
The rear of the test hack is also notable for a rear wing that appears to be far from production ready and is moulded on to the car over the rear wheelarches.
Power comes from Subaru's Boxer engine. The Toyota FT-86 Concept, which will be unveiled at next week's Tokyo motor show and which will form the basis for the car, has a 158bhp 2.0-litre boxer motor, although speculation suggests the final production car could have up to 200bhp.
