As much as we wish that this new upcoming Subaru Sports Coupe (aka Toyobaru) was AWD, we have started to see Toyota’s versions everywhere. Seems like Subaru has been keeping their designs under wraps.

Enter Road and Track online. They’ve snapped some images of the Subaru coupe testing (including their Get More G’s tennis ball).

I can’t post up the pictures on the blog due to copyrights but you can go on to their website here to see images.

Seems like every week we have pictures of the Toyabaru come out from the spies out there that want more information. Autoblog has these awesome pictures!

Looks ┬álike to this test mule that this model has no turbo due to the scoop delete (well, a simple style) on its hood so this may indication that they will have a Naturally Aspirated (non turbo) or this is Toyota’s version.

From the side, it looks like the rest of the same as the other test mules. We are really excited to see more of these test mules.

Seems like it’s Test Mule Friday today as we have new photos of the Toyabaru Test Mule!

As you can see in the pictures, seems like this Test Mule will retain the “Subaru Scoop” so we’re hoping that it retains the current 2.5 Turbo power plant for the Top Mount Intercooler.

The rest of the exterior is pretty much the same but it won’t tell us much about the final production vehicle due to the fact that it’s a test mule.

Here’s the part that got me giggling like a little girl, interior shots. Although the exterior look very familiar to the current Impreza, the interior looks nothing like a current Subaru. The chassis is based off the Legacy, the interior has odd cues like the top mounted air conditioner vents and the side panels. Also the gauge cluster is different from the Legacy or Impreza so this is pretty much a new interior.

So, are we excited for this? You’re darn right we are. We look forward to the progress of the Toyabaru as it becomes closer to production! A new coupe from Subaru and it’s taken them over 10 years!
