Toyota FT-86 Specs Leaked: 200 HP, 2,700 LB

Follow Nelson

Just as we expected, the Toyota FT-86 (and very likely its FR-S variant) will get a 200-horsepower boxer four-cylinder and weigh in around 2,700 pounds depending on options, according to a comparative spec sheet released today.

The comparison chart, leaked today via FT-86 Club, says as much about the car's intended target as the specs do: it's aiming for Mazda's MX-5 and RX-8, and the Honda CR-Z. While the CR-Z is certainly low-hanging fruit in performance terms, the proven chassis underpinning the MX-5 and RX-8 is a lofty goal for handling and feel, so we're eager to see the FT-86 and its related variants for ourselves.

The full specs include torque of 151 pound-feet,  a base weight of 2,667 pounds in "low-spec" trim, or 2,712 pounds with more equipment onboard. Fuel economy is claimed at 28.6 mpg though it's not clear what method is used to reach that figure. Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be offered, and stock tire sizes will be 205/55s on 16-inch wheels for the base model, upgraded to 215/45s on 17-inch wheels for the higher-spec version.

Thanks Kevin for the tip!

  1. The weight and HP are almost perfect! Kudos for keeping it well under 3000lbs. I didn't even know the NA boxer from Subaru was even capable of 200hp. Sweet!

    Bad stuff?

  2. I thought this car would be in the Nissan G37, 350z competition, I meant more powerful. 200hp is within the Nissan Altima, Acura TSX, etc. power range

  3. It's aimed at the MX-5 and, sort of, the Genesis Coupe 2.0T. It's a lightweight sports car, not a powerful GT. I think that's a good thing, but the McPherson strut front suspension worries me about its potential. On the other hand, Subaru builds very fun cars, so I have some hope.

  4. maybe Toyota is releasing this bread and butter version for everyone to start liking the brand again. Then just when everyone relaxes they smack us around the head with a GTFour variant and people start demanding a Toyota again as opposed to it currrently being a safe fall back marque.

  5. I really doubt there will be an AWD version from any of the versions, if that's what you're implying. More power is certainly possible (turbo), and that may be enough; the market is short of fun, lightweight turbo coupes at the moment.
