Subaru RWD Coupe at the Nurburgring - Click above for high-res image gallery

We see a lot of spy shots here at Autoblog. But few vehicles have popped up quite as much as the Toyobaru (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/toyobaru) FT-86 (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/ft-86). The rear-wheel drive sportscar that may very well spawn Toyota (http://www.autoblog.com/make/toyota), Scion (http://www.autoblog.com/make/scion) and Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/make/subaru) versions has popped up on roads around the world. And now it's taken to the Nürburgring.

The legendary German road course is a favorite among chassis development engineers for the variety of corners and surfaces around its undulating distance. Most German and many Japanese and American sportscars undergo at least part of their shakedown there, with many manufacturers maintaining on-site workshops.

While the Subaru coupe and its FT-86 sibling may not be up to the task of chasing LFAs (http://www.autoblog.com/model/lfa) and GTRs (http://www.autoblog.com/model/gtr), its appearance at the notorious Green Hell may be our best indication yet of the car's sporting potential.

Subaru has announced the introduction at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show with U.S. deliveries shortly thereafter. Until we actually see the exterior and interior (aside from the fact that we know it has a boxster engine and RWD) it is hard to actually judge the vehicle.
