It is produced at Subaru's factory in Gunma, Japan. Worldwide, it is sold under differing model names and brands such as the Subaru BRZ and the North America-only Scion FR-S, although each model is sold with slight differences between each. The GT86 is only sold in Europe.
The GT86 was primarily designed to feature outstanding handling capabilities, much like the highly regarded Toyota Corolla sport compacts of the 1980s. It is built on a light RWD platform with a low-sitting Subaru flat-four engine to allow for a low center of gravity.
Inspirations for the exterior design were taken from the side profile of the Toyota 2000GT, a highly sought-after grand tourer of the 1960s.
