    Rumorpile: Mid-Engine Coupe Currently Being Tested By Subaru

      Something is lurking at Subaru's proving grounds

    Subaru and mid-engine sports car? It seems like a fantasy that someone has dreamed up, but a report says such a thing does exist.


    Car and Driver has learned that Subaru is playing around with an experimental mid-engine coupe prototype. It is said to be a modified BRZ with a different all-wheel system - electric motors powering the front wheels and a turbocharged Boxer engine powering the rear wheels. The prototype is also said to use Subaru's new modular platform.


    “Whether the end result will be a two-door sports coupe or some kind of sports crossover/CUV is still in the evaluation stage,” the source said.


    “A coupe seems more likely, though.”


    Why is Subaru working on this? Word has it that Subaru dealers in the U.S. - the company's biggest market - want something special. The home office listened and is working on this.


    The report goes on to say that a concept of this mid-engine vehicle will debut in about two years to gauge reaction from the press and public.
