Subaru’s RWD Coupe Platform

Many people were expecting to see a concept of the Subaru flavored version of the RWD Toyota FT-86 at Geneva, but the automaker only displayed the car’s chassis in a clear plastic body. The company did not comment on exterior wrap, though there are some solid chances that the shape may hint at the styling of the upcoming production coupe.

Subaru named the rear-wheel drive platform “Boxer Sports Car Architecture” and in comparison to the company’s production all-wheel-drive models, the new boxer engine in the coupe is installed lower and further back.

As a reminder, Subaru and Toyota have teamed up in order to develop the boxer-powered and rear-wheel drive sports car architecture and each of the automakers will introduce their own version in about one year, give or take a couple of months.
