Toyota FT-86 underpins the 2014 Lexus IS

The dealerships have not received the long-waited Toyota FT-86 yet, but we heard some rumours that speak about the sports car lending its chassis to the next-generation Lexus IS. The details released so far are not many, but according to Road&Track, a stretched version of the FT-86 will be the base, the platform for the Lexus and its debut is expected to happen in 2013.
It also appears that the more traditional 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 3.6-liter six-cylinder will replace the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.
Although nothing was confirmed, inside sources claim that Toyota has green-lighted an FT-86 sedan and Lexus have also specified their intention of developing a sportier lineup as previewed by the LFA and upcoming GS-F.
