Under the hood, engine choices are expected to mirror the Camry: a 158-horsepower 2.4 liter four-cylinder, a 268-horsepower 3.5 liter V6 and a 147-horsepower 2.4 liter four-cylinder hybrid.
Rumor has it that the FSC will enter production this coming September, but there has been no official word on pricing or availability. The original FSC show car was right-hand-drive as it was shown initially in Japan.
