I think this gives you a much better idea of how much both Toyota and Subaru were involved in this. This is an inspiring story and it makes you realize that this car is truly something special.

So Subaru make a top video and Toyota spill this out. Come on Toyota wheres the video

Did anyone count how many times Subaru mentioned "Low Center of Gravity"

It was in every second or third sentence almost, to the point i was bored of reading it.

This should make it clear to people who are choosing sides and saying that their company contributed more etc. Toyota and Subaru put a lot of effort into this project. They both had strengths and weakness and were there for each other to compensate for each other's weakness.

Also, I didn't realize how much time they spent on the auto. Man if I knew they spent that much time and effort into the auto, I would not have changed my order to a manual.

I don't think I have ever read such an inspiring story about the development of a car. Just like the Subaru video this is great marketing.

Kind of. I've gotten a few dealership brochures from japan that are really nicely laid out as opposed just a print and staple.
