Nothing wrong with RWD in a sports car. It's not like its marketing itself as a practical vehicle. What I don't get is the "STI" on the cover. There wasn't really any info about an STi version and all I've heard are rumors.

If I understand correctly what is going on, in the states this car will be marketed as a Scion, and in Japan it will be a Subaru...

Subaru, Toyota and Scion will all have their own version of the car. Subaru designed the engine, but from what I have read the heads are from Toyota and the transmission is from a Lexus IS 350 (at least the auto version will be, didnt say about the manual). The major differences will be in the body styling of all 3 cars. The biggest differences I have seen between the concepts is the rear ends, but that doesnt mean it will stay that way once the production versions are shown at the Tokyo Autoshow. Subaru did say at the LA Autoshow that they will be toning their concept down a little and Scion FR-S is expected to have more aggressive styling.

Nothing wrong with a RWD sports car.

Problem is, this car isn't one. 200hp NA? pffft don't make me laugh.

This is a glorified Celica, move along nothing to see here.

-_- i think people miss the point. they're pretty much aiming this to be like a miata. which is honestly a great little car.

^yes i wish they made more power, but from what I'm seeing, it doesn't look too bad, and I'm sure there will be plenty of space for upgrades..
