Looks like Toyota/Subaru passed up a golden opportunity with their new front engine RWD sports coupe.

Toyota picked up a proven all aluminum, over square, 4 cylinder boxer engine that could have been placed in a mid-engine location like the Porsche Cayman that would have blown away its competition! Although it would not be as fast as a Cayman, it could potentially have had the same handling and braking characteristics! The mid engine Toyota/Subaru coupe would end up several inches shorter and a couple of hundred pounds lighter than the Cayman. Best of all, they could probably sell it for one-half the cost of a Cayman! Don
