Subaru teases new coupé

Subaru teases new coupé

So now we know what the underneath of Subaru's new coupé looks like...

What is it?

It's no secret that Subaru has joined forces with Toyota to create a rear-wheel drive sports car - and this is the first glimpse at Subaru's version. Toyota has also unveiled its FT-86 concept, which does without the cutaway looks of the Subaru and promises to be a replacement for Celica.

Why's it here?

The Boxer Sports Car concept in the pictures features a clear plastic body, but that's just to display the latest generation of boxer engine and the suspension and chassis.

It rides on a new platform and the bodywork on the production version will be inspired by Subaru's recent Impreza concept car that paved the way for a new design language.

Show stopper or floor filler?

Displaying the innards of the car as the showpiece rather than the bodywork is a bold move and sure to turn plenty of heads. The tie-up with Toyota is likely to be the talk of the town, though.
