The most exciting new model to wear a Toyota badge in nearly ten years will make its debut later this year, alongside its Subaru twin, according to Japanese newspaper Tokyo.

Developed in partnership by Toyota and Subaru, the upcoming FT-86 sports car wowed audiences in concept form at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show, but its path to production has been marred by an 'on-and-off-and-on-again' battle.

Speaking with the paper this week, the President of Subaru's parent company Fuji Heavy Industries, Mori Ikuo, reportedly confirmed that both models are nearing the end of testing.

Ikuo added that the production FT-86 (which reports suggest may be dubbed 'FR-S' in Toyota form) will be "very comfortable and fuel-efficient", benefiting from a low centre of gravity for proper sports-car handling.

Exact technical details remain unclear, although it is known that both models will be powered by a Subaru-developed 2.0 litre turbo-charged boxer engine. Reports overseas claim power figures of around 200kW.
