As manufacturers pull out of the Detroit Motor Show left, right, and centre, Subaru has announced that not only will it be appearing, but that Detroit will be home to the world debut of "a" concept vehicle.
While there's not been confirmation of what the vehicle will be, we are all well aware that Toyota and Subaru are busily working away on a lightweight RWD coupe to be released in 2010/2011 - which is about due for a concept version we reckon...
The RWD Coupe is said to utilise a Subaru Impreza platform, with the front drive components removed, and a 2.0 litre boxer engine providing somewhere in the vicinity of 140kWs. Rear-wheel drive and light kerb-weight should make for a lively little coupe, you'd reckon, when it eventually gets to market.
Subaru and Toyota have done a bang-up job of keeping a tight lid on this one so we'll be watching Subaru's movements at Detroit in Janaury very closely. If we can glean any new information, you'll be first to know. Stay tuned.
