A Sedan (Saloon) GT86 must be the New Impreza, isn't it?

I think a sedan 86 is a great idea! Small, light and Rwd. What's not to like?

It's not an Impreza though, the 86/BRZ architecture places the engine too low and too far back for that!

Despite that I really Like the Idea of a Subaru BRZ Saloon, I dislike the Idea that Toyota could start selling the Impreza WRX under the Toyota Badge, Because I saw Photos of the New (2014) impreza WRX prototype and it really looks to me that it is Based on the BRZ Chassis...

I've been looking at that there saloon the past week.

 

Still not quite sure how I feel about it.

 

-For one, can't wrap my brain around convertibles. (Flipping a car'll do that to you)

-Two, all that hearing "86" makes me think of is an AE86. -Different, in every way.

-Three, very BReeZy. Very, BReeZy.

 

Four, who knows what contractual partnerships have been made between Subaru and Toyota?

 

The day a WRX is badged by Toyota'll be the death of me.

In my opinion though, the WRX lost touch in '08.

'02 Bugeyes - Forever in my heart.

The BRZ/86 platform as it is currently cannot use AWD so there is no need to worry about a Toyota badged WRX.

Subaru is also unlikely to 'give' Toyota its flagship, 'hero' model. Also, while Subaru is on a sales 'wave' I doubt they will care what Toyota wants! After all, Toyota's shares are in Fuji Heavy Industries not Subaru.

As a committed sedan owner, I don't think a sedan version of the BRZ "platform" would appeal to me. Convertable BRZ-definitely.

Yeah I would love to see a rag top BRZ' but all hopes of there were dashed a few weeks ago when the president of Subaru, basically said....not in a million years! I was bummed...
