These are very first spy shots of the Subaru and Toyota joint-developed rear-wheel-drive coupe. The test mule seen in the pictures looks like it’s sporting many body parts from the Legacy, albeit it’s apparent that coupe is much more compact in dimensions. We’re not so sure about the platform but in a previous official statement issued by the two Japanese carmakers, the yet unnamed coupes will be based on an all-new platform with power coming from Subaru’s range of boxer engines.
Judging by our experience that could translate to a modified version of the existing Impreza platform and 2.0 / 2.5-liter naturally aspirated and turbocharged engines. Needless to say that we can’t make any assumptions about the coupe’s appearance from the test mule pics. However, since both coupes are slated to enter production in 2011, expect a Toyota and Subaru concept version to appear sometime in 2009 with the production version making its official appearance in a major car show in 2010.
