The Subaru SVX was a mid-size GT coupe that was sold by Subaru from 1991 to 1997. It was the brand’s first major attempt to enter the luxury/performance car market but its styling failed to excite most buyers in the segment and the performance from its naturally-aspired engine was nothing special either.
Total sales of the car topped a little over 25,000 units worldwide before the model was pulled. While not quite the success Subaru was hoping for, a successor to the car is reportedly in the works.
According to Auto Express, Subaru is working on a new sports coupe based on the recently revealed Hybrid Tourer Concept. The production version will likely share the concept’s hybrid drivetrain and possibly even its gullwing door design.
A Subaru insider said the car would target high-end performance vehicles and could be priced as high £40,000 (approximately $63,196).
This latest model is in addition to the new sports coupe Subaru is developing jointly with Toyota and due next year. For more information on this model, check out our previous story by clicking here.
