Toyota + Subaru Compact FR Car

Weight and power go up, as does the but it#8217;s still expected to be than the new Nissan FR sports

In April Toyota and Subaru a formal declaration confirming intentions of putting their new FR car on the market by the end of 2011. Subaru initially existence, but we can confirm that not is there an FR sports car development but that Subaru will its own derivative that will different from the Toyota The dimensions will place the FR sports car in between the S15 Nissan and the AE86 Toyota Sprinter Levin, with product planning handled by Toyota and development handled by Subaru.

At the recent Toyota, Subaru and joint meeting on April 10, the theme of the talks centered the synergy between the 3 companies and how it affect Subaru#8217;s line up. The important aspect though was how the FR sports car development would be between Toyota and Subaru. will control product and guide the project while will donate the platform and and also take on development

It#8217;s a little surprising how the team have cited the Integra Type R as a benchmark to with. The Integra has almost the dimensions as the compact FR sports car influencing the styling) and will similar performance with its aspirated engine.

The dimensions of the Integra are (length) (width) 1725mm and (height) with a wheelbase of 2570mm. The FR sports car will have dimensions so it will be one size than the Subaru Impreza. You say that these dimensions image below) will make the new FR sports car the perfect size for its purpose: a fun, easy to sports car experience.

Subaru will be aiming for and 21.0kg/m for the 2.0L NA boxer cylinder engine, but we whether this will be to go up against the power and torque the new Nissan FR sports car is aiming to Subaru 2.0L engine be non-turbo so emphasis will be on a flowing intake and exhaust and throttle response and mated to manual and automatic gearboxes.

 The layout of the platform enable the engine to be placed low in a midship#8217; configuration with the placed behind the front which is unusual considering the layout of models. There will be a 2+2 seating arrangement inside the rear seats are described as good for #8220;occasional use#8221;

The specifications have changed since we last reported on the compact sports car. the car is to weigh around 1300kg now and capacity as well as power been icreased which is than likely in response to of Nissan#8217;s involvement in their own FR sports car program. This of will have an effect on the price which is now rumored to be yen.
