It's a Subaru SVX...while it is somewhat awkward looking (especially from thata ngle), it's quite an interesting car...I found this link which has pretty much all the info on it you'll ever want...

A dude around my neighbourhood has one. I'm afraid to touch it...

Honestly, I always get the feeling that it's "nukular" fission powered...

It's actually a very awesome luxury coupe that Subaru put out. The dash is covered in suede leather and the center stack hides behind a real wood door panel. The window-in-window design was very unique... but made drive-thru windows a pain in the ass. Friends of mine rated it best interior for luxury coupes two years in a row while it was out (when I was a teenager, we’d go to the Dallas Auto Show and rate the cars.)

Its actually very cool aside from those tollboth windows. Its a lousy, cluttered look that almost ruins an otherwise slick design.

Weird-ass cars these things are, especially for those damn half windows which I never ever got. There's a guy around here that comes by my work in one every now and again; a white '93 model if I remember. There's also a guy around here still driving his silver '86 XT coupe; another weird offering by Subaru. The car looks like a giant wedge!

Print yourself one out, cut it, and fold it up if you don't believe me! :lol:

The half-window design was made so when the windows were fully down, it wouldn't hurt the aerodynaimc properties of the car (no drag). I think it was to reduce wind noise as well but I'm not sure about that.

Subaru SVX=awesome. I want one, they have boxer 6 engines and AWD, but are automatic only.

Agreed... too bad they're auto only. My buddy Alex almost bought one

back in the late 90s.... I was telling him to do it but he went wiht a

used Blazer instead.

XP: Speaking of the XT Coupe remember how the

chick in BIG (Tom Hanks) drives one? :D

The exterior is sorta interesting...teh windows are like what you'd find on a DeLorean

The interior looks very good, especially for it's time!

Hell, throw some "newer" guages on there and a newer steering wheel and I bet that interior would still be pretty decent even by today's standards...

EDIT: and the shifter, and radio...well, you get the point

The designer behind both the Delorean and this Subaru was Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign. :)
