While there’s been speculation and rumors of Toyota expanding its GT86 (known as the Scion FR-S in North America) lineup to include a sedan model, there’s reason to believe just such a car will debut soon.

A Facebook post and photo from the Dubai International Motor Show is touting the brands new “Wave design” stand set up, as well as the unveiling of a new GT86 based sedan, suggesting that the concept would make its debut at the Dubai Motor Show. The post is accompanied by a photoshop of a GT86 sedan.

Earlier reports of the GT86 based sedan stated that the car wouldn’t make its debut at an international motor show until the next Geneva show, making this Facebook post even harder to believe. Attempts to contact both Toyota or the Dubai Motor Show have been unsuccessful.

A new hybrid drivetrain is rumored to power the rear-wheel drive sedan, in addition to the same 200 hp 2.0L boxer motor that’s currently found in the coupe.

The Dubai Motor Show opens November 5th.
