TOKYO -- Does Subaru have a stealth marketing problem embedded in its BRZ sporty coupe?
The new car is the Subaru sibling of the Toyota 86/Scion FR-S. The companies developed the cars jointly, and except for some badging and front fascia differences, they are essentially clones.
Subaru engineers handled the drivetrain and chassis – mostly stuff the customer doesn't see. Toyota designers, on the other hand, took control of the overall styling.
