Toyota FT-86 IIToyota continues to tease the automotive world about the production version of its FT-86 concept car. After revealing details on what its engine configuration and transmission, Toyota has disclosed information about the FT-86's drivetrain.

According to Toyota, the production-model FT-86 will combine Subaru's newly-developed horizontally-opposed boxer engine with Toyota's combined direct injection-and-port injection technology--known as D-4S--to increase the powerplant's horsepower and torque without sacrificing fuel consumption and environmental performance.

Besides the short-throw six-speed manual transmission, the production FT-86 will also be offered with a six-speed automatic transmission that can be controlled through the steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifts. A limited-slip differential will also distribute power effectively to the rear wheels.

"The FT-86 final production model will be realized around the idea of unique balance, thanks to its compact dimensions, light weight design and low center of gravity ensuring the best possible power-to-weight ratio and resulting in an intrinsic joy of driving," Toyota said in its statement.
