    Post Subaru confirms 'Toyobaru' sports coupe for Geneva



    While Toyota has been happy to supply the world with glimpses of and whispers about its version of the FT-86 sports coupe, Subaru has been suspiciously quiet about its planned version of the car. But it looks like that's about to change. The Pleiades has announced the vehicles that it plans to show off at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March, and tucked amongst the already-revealed Impreza Concept and the new Trezia econobox is word that the Subaru Rear-Wheel Drive Sports Car Technology Concept will also make an appearance. The news answers the question of whether or not the Subaru end of the venture would boast the company's trademark all-wheel drive when it debuts. All signs point to no at least in concept form.

    Other than the fact that the RWD Subaru will bow in Geneva, there's no indication as to what the car will look like or whether or not it will ever show up in American showrooms. We do know that the vehicle will boast a Subaru boxer four-cylinder under its hood, though it's unclear whether the engine will be a next-generation interpretation of the engine it currently markets or if Subaru will stick the old turbo lump out front. We'll probably find out soon enough.

    Looks pretty sweet. Maybe IF we get this in the U.S. people will stop trying to make their wrx's into RWD.

    "American pricing hasn’t been announced, but in Japan, Fuji Heavy Industries’s president Mori Ikuo says the car will go for about 70 percent of the price of an STI. If that pricing structure translates over here, the 216a should start at less than $24,000. [via Subaru]"

    taking into account the camo "body panels" it just looks like a 2011 wrx with the back door cut in half...idk, im not sure i like it...would have to see it when done. Besides, then its just a rwd sports car, and I feel like subaru isnt the best brand to get into that, seeing as they are always awd.

    i agree with spirited09wrx^..it looks like a smaller impreza and thats fine but dont add half doors, also i think it should keep subarus awd presence even if it may cause more understeer than rwd
