That's exciting news, considering that many automakers, including Nissan and Infiniti (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/11/24/nissan-pulls-out-of-detroit-and-chicago-auto-shows/), have announced they will have no official presence at the largest auto show of the year in the U.S. We're not sure what the new concept will be, but our best guesstimate would be the boxer-powered rear-wheel drive sportscar (http://www.autoblog.com/2007/08/10/report-toyota-fuji-heavy-looking-to-team-on-ae86-revival-ta/) that we've been expecting for the last year or so. That coupe has been jointly developed with Toyota, which owns a large stake (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/06/27/toyota-buys-another-chunk-of-fhi-subaru/) in Subaru and has been developing its own version of the platform, as well. Does this mean that Toyota (or its subsidiary Scion) will also be showing off its concept version of the upcoming RWD sports car? We have no idea, but it wouldn't be all that surprising. Stay tuned.
