Subaru never made clever use of that technical USP.
Don't know about "clever" but they certainly made robust, and almost terminally ugly, machines. A buddy bought a 4-wheel drive Subby wagon (Leone) in the summer of 1977 (the first year offered in the US). He immediately tested it by moving his family from Rantoul, Illinois to Anchorage, Alaska in it; he made the trip twice that summer pulling a small cargo trailer. His was forest green and was factory-equipped with front crash bar a (seen here ( we fitted an electric winch to it)), engine skid plate, and roof rack. The morning they left, fully loaded, it was hard to believe it would even move.

I really liked the initial concept posted. It reminded me slightly of the Zenvo ST1 in the front end.
I knew the concept would be dulled down, and I'm not completely against it now. Although I did really like the original aggressive look.

There will be body kits for it, so that can add some spice.

Why add some spice to something that already shows signs of too much
flavour?

I'd like mine with less, please.

There is a whole category of super sweet '80s Japanese car styling. Thanks for digging up that Subaru!

Wow, I never saw the interior of that car. The steering wheel is so rad! I remember the car well though. I remember the TV commercial even.

The FR-S should have been the next coming of the Toyota Celica. The Scion brand is confusing while Toyota is quickly losing any remaining sporting appeal...while Lexus forgot that it was the Mercedes-competing price leader. It's as if the Lexus / Toyota / Scion Brand Managers had a meeting and arm wrestled for the FR-S.

This one is almost as interesting as the Bentley / Scion joint project.
