At long last, Subaru has confirmed this week that a concept version of its upcoming rear-wheel-drive sports car will debut at March's Geneva Motor Show.

Developed in partnership with Toyota, "Rear-Wheel Drive Sports Car Technology Concept" will preview Subaru's version of the car that Toyota will launch as the FT-86.

"The concept embodies Subaru's established know-how in manufacturing boxer-powered passenger cars; it shows how Subaru proposes to integrate this expertise into a rear-wheel drive car to offer a new and highly enjoyable, Subaru-like driving experience," a Subaru statement reads.

Subaru has confirmed that its concept will be driven by its own boxer engine technology. There are scant other details and for now it remains unclear how far away is the sports car's production debut.

The news follows sightings of a camouflaged and heavily modified WRX STI hatch last year, considered then to be a sign of progress in the development of Subaru's new coupe.
