Geneva 11': Subaru RWD Sports Car to Get 2.0L Boxer Engine
Although every model that is currently available in the US with a Subaru badge, has all-wheel-drive, the upcoming coupe will be rear-wheel-drive. Will Subaru fans scream in disgust? Subaru claims that its first mass-produced front-engine, rear-wheel-drive model will deliver a new level of driving excitement thanks to its lower center of gravity and compact and lightweight body. The 2.0L boxer engine sits even lower and further back in the coupe since there isn't a front differential or driveshafts to get in the way.
Production of the rear-wheel-drive sports car is expected to begin in spring 2012 at a Subaru production plant in Japan.
