Subaru “Clears” the Air About New Boxer Sports Car

Maker delivers some surprises with model under development with Toyota.

I can see clearly Subaru brings a transparent version of its new sports car to Geneva.

There’s been plenty of smog in the air when it comes to the new Subaru sports car the Japanese maker is developing with its Japanese affiliate, Toyota, so the smaller carmaker wisely brought a transparent prototype to the Geneva Motor Show, this week, to help clear things up.

A variety of Subaru insiders provided some insight into what we can expect when the as yet-unnamed sports car goes into production in the spring of 2012.  The biggest news is that it will, indeed, be offered in the U.S., something that had been long undecided.

Equally significant, has learned, Subaru’s Boxer Sports Car – as it is currently referred to – will come only in rear-wheel-drive configuration.  It will, in fact, be the only model in the Subaru of America line-up that won’t be sold exclusively with all-wheel-drive.
