Last week, we saw leaked images of a tricked out Toyota FT-86 thanks to a leaked brochure of the company’s in-house tuning arm Modellista. Over the weekend, another brochure was leaked showing the production version of the Toyota FT-86. We now have another leak – a training manual that gives us more information on the specs and options that will be available on/with the FT-86 and Scion FR-S (as it will be sold in the United States).
If the document is to be believed, the Toyota FT-86 will weigh in at 2,662 pounds (with manual) and will be powered by a 2.0 liter flat 4-cylinder engine making 197-hp at 7,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 150 lb-ft at 6,600 rpm. Transmission choices will include a 6-speed manual as standard and an optional 6-speed automatic.
The document also shows that the FT-86 and FR-S will be available in two trim levels. The base will be a lower-spec model that has only the limited-slip diff with the manual transmission. The higher-spec model will get a limited-slip rear differential in both manual and automatic versions. Higher-spec models will also get leather-wrapped steering, ‘high-quality’ seats, LED accent lighting, a 6-speaker audio system, sport pedals and white-lighted gauges and larger wheels.
