Toyota and Subaru will jointly announce something mysterious and quick

Toyota owns 20% of Subaru, and the two Japanese carmakers are working on several joint projects. One will be unveiled online in April 2021, and the partners released a preview image that asks more questions than it answers.

Posted on a dedicated page of Subaru’s Japanese website, the photo shows the caption, “Let’s make ever-better cars together!” accompanied by an image of each company’s logo. We’re presumably looking at the front end of a car. Scrolling down reveals that it will be presented by the head of Toyota’s go-fast Gazoo Racing division.
What immediately comes to mind is the long-awaited next-generation 86. Subaru unveiled the second-generation BRZ in late 2020, and we can’t wait to drive it, but we haven’t seen Toyota’s version of the car yet. Unverified reports claim that it has been delayed until 2022 at the earliest to give engineers time to differentiate it from the Subaru model. If they’re true, the coupe isn’t what Toyota and Subaru will jointly unveil in April. It also seems slightly odd that Toyota would ask for Subaru’s help in presenting the 86 to the world, let alone underline the connection.

Something mysterious means making Toyota Ractis and slapping it with a Subaru logo and a shitty name.

Subaru used to make great cars. Nowadays ni bure kabisa
