    New Toyota/Subaru Coupe

     A couple years back Toyota and Subaru got toguether to design a coupe, heres the product of that. the car is set to hit showrooms on 2011 and will have a Subaru 2.0 boxer engine. there will of course be a Subaru badged version that will look kindda diferent but not that much. other faster and turbo versions are sure to follow. IMO it looks good, lets hope it stays good after it gets the concept coolness knocked out of it and hits production. The good thing is that its a toyota so it wont break down on you and besides they plan to keep the cost very low. so its be a good option for low budget people or younger kids getting first cars. Smiley

     Not bad.  This would be the first RWD Subaru ever, right?

    Re: New Toyota/Subaru Coupe

    Maybe.. but this would be strange move for Subaru given how much they market their AWD focus, the only maker that does so to the same degree as Audi.   If it really will use a flat-4, then these engines are already mated to AWD drivetrains as Subaru uses them, and perhaps they could do an AWD Subaru version, and a RWD Toyota version (a la IS 250-350). 

    I wonder  if Subaru had a coupe platform for WRC in mind (before they pulled the rally plug this year   Smiley ).    At the time this project was started, coupe bodies were killing Subaru's sedan platforms in WRC...

    Quit good!

    I like the seat design! Car looks like a prototype.... great to see something new!


    Re: New Toyota/Subaru Coupe

    Meh im not a believer on the looks. the front looks very Honda. The rear looks very lexus and the A pillar very Nissan GT-R. Not a awardwinning car design by any means IMO. But it does look very modern, and with some good engines it could be lots of fun! i spot a nice interior and good old 6speed shifter!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

     I wonder how low the weight can go - I'm hoping for 2,600 to 2,700 lbs, but maybe that's optimistic?

    This will probably be marketed under the Scion brand here in the U.S.

    Offering a Boxer engine is unique and interesting. Is this going to be Toyota's first in a passenger car?

    No way.  I think I read before that this car's target audiences are middle age man instead of 20 something, which means the price will be at around high 20K to low 30K in US, at best.

     If they're smart, they'll make several versions with different performance and luxury tiers at different prices.  Maybe even a Lexus version too...
