A brand new electric sports car is about to be launched as fans delight in its familiar ’90s look.
Subaru showed what a potential electric car under the brand could look like at the 2023 Tokyo Auto Show.
The design bears striking similarities to the beloved SVX from the 1990s.
The car features body panels designed to allow air to circulate more easily, and the use of sleek, lightweight materials such as forged carbon ensures the car always remains at top speed.
Inside the concept car, the driver sat in a low seat and faced a unique square steering wheel.
Like most modern cars, it will have touchscreens that show the driver a whole range of information, from directions to music playback.
Although a variation of the Subaru brand, it uses side-mounted cameras instead of the traditional side mirrors that most other brands use to display information.
Last year, Subaru announced the STI E-RA sports car concept as a test car for high-performance EV technology.
The potential car featured four electric motors that combined to produce a whopping 1,072 horsepower.
By independently controlling each motor, the setup was also able to provide fast and precise torque vectoring.
Subaru used the Tokyo Auto Show to really show off all the impressive things they’ve been working on.
They presented a high-riding version of the Levorg compact car, sold only in Japan in a new version called the Levorg Layback.
The manufacturer also presented a crazy concept for an air taxi that got people talking.
Dubbed the Air Mobility Concept, the design resembles a giant drone large enough to carry a driver and a passenger.
Subaru says engineers in its aerospace division are currently working on a version that will soon be able to conduct practice flights.
These new cars represent a change after Subaru announced it would discontinue its WRX STI due to difficulties in complying with manufacturing regulations.
The company’s dealer in early 2023 Marines said these regulations are tied to fuel economy and emissions as the world becomes more electric.
Japanese automaker Honda has also brought back the once-popular Prelude model after it was discontinued in 2001.

The redesigned two-seat coupé is characterized by a long front section, a short distance between the dashboard and the axle and a forward-positioned cabin.
The pointed nose, flowing curves and wide fenders give the Prelude a sporty look.
