In the end, there can be only one. Which would you choose?

But it's only a concept, for now.

Designed in Australia and built in Japan, the GT86 Shooting Brake is fully functional. Toyota says there are no plans for production for now.

Toyota's tuning division GRMN has done up a special version of the sports car we know as the Scion FR-S with a number of key enhancements. Shame it's only a limited edition exclusively for sale in Japan.

43

Subaru and Toyota now have a patent on the design for the STI Performance Concept in Japan, and that may suggest a more thrilling road car on the way.

Auto Express takes the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata and the Toyota GT86 (aka Scion FR-S) to the track to see which can clock the faster lap time in this latest head-to-head battle for bragging rights.

Toyota looks to be prepping a mid-cycle refresh for the GT86, known here in the US as the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ.

Felix Baumgartner pilots a helicopter startlingly close to a drifting Toyota GT86 in this latest visual spectacle from Red Bull, filmed at an event in Poland.

At the Goodwood Festival of Speed this summer, Toyota will showcase six GT86s done up with throwback liveries reminiscent of famous racing cars from the company's considerable motorsport history.

The Scion FR-S is rumored to get a refresh next year with updated styling, an improved suspension, and slightly more power from its 2.0-liter engine.

Toyota readies rally-going version of the Scion FR-S for the R3 class, available for privateer teams for less than $95,000 to field in national and international events including the HJS TMG CS-R3 Trophy starting this summer.

Ever since Toyota and Subaru released the sports car alternatively known as the GT86, 86, BRZ and Scion FR-S a couple of years ago, rumors have circulated that even more exciting variants could be in store. But at least as far as Scion is concerned, those rumors are apparently nothing more than wishful thinking.

Toyota is finally making good on its Griffon concept from last year with this limited-edition 14R-60 that basically hops through the Toyota Racing Development catalog to imagine the ultimate lightweight GT86 (the continental relative to the Scion FR-S/Subaru BR-Z). Unfortunately, it's not coming stateside, and even if this modded Toyobaru were coming here, you might not want to pay the rather steep price.

Rallying may enjoy a very strong association with all-wheel drive, but it wasn't so long ago that the World Rally Championship was populated by cars that slipped and slid across gravel and tarmac using rear-wheel drive. One of those was the Toyota Celica. While the little Celica eventually joined the gravel-spewing masses with an all-wheel-drive rally car, Toyota is returning to its rear-drive rally roots with a modified version of the critically acclaimed GT86.

We have entered a drifting arms race. Last year, BMW smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest drift by hanging the tail out for 51.3 miles around a wet skid pad in an M5 at the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina. That beat the previous milestone of nearly seven miles. Now, Bimmer's record is up in smoke as well and is in the possession of a Toyota.

Hallelujah friends, hallelujah. One of the highest voices in Subaru's parent company, Fuji Heavy Industries, has just said that the boxer-obsessed automaker will release a second generation of the lovable BRZ.

We've seen (and frankly reported on) so many rumors of more powerful and performance-focused versions of the Subaru BRZ, Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S at this point that haven't materialized that, at this point, we're almost tired of them. Almost. But what we have here was enough to pique our jaded interests as only a carbon-bodied sports car on the Nürburgring could do.

Cosworth stands on the list of the most famous engine tuners in the world with its DFV engine engine dominating Formula One for a time in the '70s. So when it teases plans to take on the FA20 engine from Subaru and Toyota found in the BRZ, Scion FR-S and Toyota GT86 abroad, our interest is indeed piqued. Cosworth is promising to take the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder boxer engine from its current 200 horsepower all the way to 325 hp and even 380 hp in a future track version through a series of staged

Subaru may or may not produce an STI version of the BRZ. Things seem to go back and forth on the subject. But Subaru Tecnica International isn't the only company with a history of tuning Subies. So does Cosworth, and now the British racing firm appears to be turning its attention to the BRZ and its Toyota- and Scion-badged siblings.
