    The FR-S would probably win the sales race based on the lower price, but that doesn't really matter because Toyota gets to bring in about three of them for every one BRZ. Even if there was equal demand, this is the sales ratio you'll see.

    A little more research would have revealed that your "finding" has no significance. Allocation of production between Subaru and Scion branded vehicles was from the start to be roughly 2.5:1. Subaru was the more reluctant partner to the joint venture and therefore was satisfied with the higher proportion of production going to Toyota. When I first decide to reserve a car two months before it was issued on June 1, 2012, I went to the Subaru dealer first as the dealership was more convenient. But, after finding that the dealer offered no set price, no month of delivery and no return of the deposit if I did not like the car, I went to a Scion dealer. Scion offered a fixed price, a day of delivery and the right of refusal and deposit return. Guess which won my business?

    Part of the joint venture agreement between Subaru and Toyota specified that production was split 2.5:1 in favor or Toyota. This reflects Subaru's qualms about selling a lot of cars that didn't fit into its 4wd lineup. A little more digging by your estimable reporters would have revealed this.

    And Peter, you got the facts the other way round:
    Toyota handled the designing, Subaru handling the engineering.
