In a recent interview with a Tokyo-based newspaper, the president of Fuji Heavy Industries (Subaru's parent company) announced Toyota and Subaru will launch their jointly-developed sport coupes in late 2011.

Mori Ikuo went on to say that testing is almost complete and the design team is making their final adjustments. He also stated the vehicle will be "very comfortable and fuel-efficient" with a low center of gravity that will instill driver confidence.

As we have previously reported, the unnamed car will likely be outfitted with a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer engine with 260 hp (194 kW / 264 PS). It will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, which will send power to the rear-wheels.

Thanks for the tip Jason!
