    Newbie with a perplexing question...

    I've been a Subaru admirer for a long time although I've never been fortunate (or smart?) enough to own one.

    In mid-Dec 2011, I was at the 2011 Bangkok Motor Show at Impact, Muang Thong Thani, see here...

    Thai motor show kicks off today with lower sales target

    One display that caught my eye was this --

    A Subaru chassis with big rear-mounted DOHC boxer engine. Problem is -- I was so mesmerized by the beauty
    of this set-up, I took photos, but did not take note of the model designation of the vehicle.

    Does anyone here know the identity of this super cool Subaru?

    Thanks.

    I don't think that's rear mounted...unless they didn't take into account the direction the tires are supposed to roll...
