The car is seen here with the head of research and development for Subaru in California. While at the R&D center for Subaru, he took a few picture of some interesting cars. This is a hatchback, not much said about it.
This is a picture of BART #1, the hood scoop is just sitting there, engineers got to have fun, remember it was 1986.
This was an experimental car that Subaru was testing, if you look at the front, it says, SUBARU X100
And this is the only factory turbo hatchback, note the Washington plates
At the time Dr. Seal was working on a prototype engine for Subaru, it was a 2 liter quad cam (two cams per side), uummm, I wonder what engine that turned out to be?? The EJ20T?? Could it be that the EJ20T was desiged in the USA at Western Washington University?? I have writen Dr Seal an e-mail, waiting his reply.

That first Hatchback looks ALOT like the one that Jackie Chan drove in "Cannonball Run" (with the window tint and the fact that it has the corner lights of a pre-'82 model). It almost seems like the one in the movie had round headlights though (like a 4wd STD model).
Does the Hatchback in the last picture have a spoiler on the rear??

Yep, that sure looks like a spoiler to me too.
Note the styling polyester bell bottoms also.

I picked up on the same stuff Qman. Seems to have that Subaru rust spot on the rear left corner also.

The X100 looks like a 3-wheeled batmobile.
