By now you have probably heard all about the upcoming rear wheel drive coupe that will be made as collaboration between Subaru and Toyota. You have probably also heard that only Japan will be getting the Toyota version while the Subaru version will be sold worldwide. Nonetheless, the introduction of this car could have a big impact on the tuning market and the motorsports world.
I know a lot of hardcore Toyota enthusiasts were hoping this car would be a revival of the AE86, but it appears it will not quite be a modern day hachi roku. The car is supposed weigh in at around 2,700lbs which is still pretty light by today's standards. The car will also use Subaru's proven flat four engine in naturally aspirated form. Looking at the current Subaru lineup, I imagine there will be a lot of potential for aftermarket turbocharger applications. Maybe Subaru will even come out with factory turbocharged STI version?
What do you think of this new car? Will it be a mediocre sports coupe or the next big thing?
