Almost one month ago, Toyota released a teaser image for its upcoming FT-86 rear-wheel-drive sports coupe, set to debut at Geneva next month in 'pre-production' form.

Today, Subaru has revealed a telling teaser image of its own rear-wheel-drive offering, developed in partnership with Toyota and built on the same underpinnings.

Power for both cars will come from a Subaru-developed boxer engine, but both companies remain tight-lipped on the specifics.

"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," the company said when announcing its Geneva plans last month.

While Toyota's Geneva concept is expected to offer a look at the almost production-ready car, it is unknown if Subaru's offering will be little more than a showcar concept, or a preview of the 'real deal'.

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.
