Subaru & Toyota develop RWD sports car
16th January, 2011
A Subaru rear-wheel drive sports car is currently under
joint development as part of the business alliance with Toyota Motor Corporation. Based on an all-new
platform, the vehicle will offer Subaru’s distinctive trademark and core technology: the
“Horizontally-Opposed Subaru Boxer engine”.
This new concept car, currently named “Subaru Rear-Wheel Drive Sports Car Technology Concept” will
debut in March at Switzerland's Geneva Motor Show.
The concept car embodies Subaru’s established know-how in manufacturing boxer-powered passenger cars;
it shows how Subaru proposes to integrate this expertise into a rear-wheel drive car to offer a new and
highly enjoyable, Subaru-like driving experience. The technology concept will demonstrate how the
all-new car platform makes full use of Subaru’s engineering and Boxer technology.
Stay tuned to Next Car for further news on this new model which, in production form, is due
sooner rather than later.
