The rumors have been going around for a while that Toyota and Subaru are going to team up to build a small Celica-sized coupe. It seems this may actually come together next month at the Detroit Auto Show. While some manufacturers are pulling out of Detroit, Subaru may be using this show to unveil its version of the small sports car.
It would be unlikely that Subaru would deviate from its current theme of offering all cars with all-wheel drive, so this one should follow suit. Plus, by making the Subaru version all-wheel drive and the Toyota’s car rear-wheel drive it will help differentiate the cars. But that should all be confirmed when the car comes closer to production in 2010 or 2011.
By Subaru deciding to unveil this car at the North American International Auto Show, this may be a signal that the new coupe will be sold in the U.S.
