A hybrid variant of the GT86 sounds very likely. But would be nice if it had a real gearbox, basically like a scaled-down version of the setup used in some Hino hybrid trucks fitted with an AMT with the electric motor between the transmission and the ICE instead of a clutch.

I don't recall any hybrid swaps in a classic car. But it seems like there were a few swapped into newer car bodies.
There was at least one Lincoln Continental from the 60's converted into serial hybrid.
