Official (?) Sketches of Subaru's Version of the Toyota FT-86 Coupe Hit the Web

Now that the Toyota FT-86 sports coupe has caught our attention with its sleek looks, compact dimensions, rear-wheel drive configuration and the icing on the cake, its price which is said to be in $20,000 range when it goes on sale in 2011, it's time for the media to speculate on the appearance of its Subaru twin. More specifically, a series of supposedly official sketches that are said to depict numerous design proposals for Subaru's variant of the coupe made their way onto the internet today.

Even if it is confirmed that these renderings are indeed sourced from Subaru, you don't need to be designer to see that these are rough sketches drawn on a very early stage of the development of the car. Still, feel free to express your thoughts on the design proposals in the comment section below.

Details on Subaru's version of the rear-wheel drive compact sports car that is been jointly developed with Toyota, remain scarce. All we know is that both models are based on the same platform and use Subaru's horizontally-opposed four-cylinder engine.

We'll have to wait to see if Subaru's version, which is also set to hit the market in late 2011, will get a rear-wheel drive layout and/or the option of an all-wheel drive system. However, it is almost certain that Subaru will give us a taste of its proposal by unveiling a concept model at one of the next major international auto shows.
