That was just speculation on our part from what I know. Don't really know of any large platform sedan.

According to this AutoWeek article about the Subaru 7-seater, originally published 10/13/03:
Quote:
[SOA Executive VP Fred] Adcock says the platform is flexible enough to use for other vehicles, possibly a premium luxury car that "would be our flagship."
The B11S is an example of a flagship-type sedan built on the larger platform.

I could have sworn that the B11S was based on the Legacy platform...
It's quite a bit bigger than any of Subaru's current cars at least.

For the umpteenth time the Saab SUV is a GM Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, etc. Subaru is building the 7-pax on their own.

The B11S is based on a new platform which in turn is originally based on the Legacy platform (kind of a modified Legacy platform if you will). The B11S is a prime example of what Adcock was talking about, but he mentioned "Premium Luxory Car", while the B11S is a "Sports coupe" so there might be differences still. When I think Luxory car, I think of a large Cadillac Seville type of thing, but hopefully that's NOT what he meant... Maybe he just worded it wrong and meant coupe all along?

It would be easier to argue that the Impreza platform was based on the Legacy than to claim the B11S platform is based on the Legacy. I think the basic dimensions of each platform show the B11S's platform is substantially wider and longer than any previous Subaru platform:
Code:
 2003   1992   2005   2004
 B11S   SVX   Legacy Impreza
----------------------------
110.2  102.8  105.1   99.4  Wheelbase
 64.0   59.1   58.9   59.5  Front Track
 63.4   58.3   58.7   58.1  Rear Track

Default HMMM.

THE B11S I THINK SHALL FORESHADOW THE NEW 7PAX BC OF THE WHEEL BASE.. NOTICE THAT THE WHEELBASE OF THE MDX IS 106.3 INCHES I THINK THE b11s's 110in should foreshadow th 7 pax definitely
sry for the caps
