Commemorating 50 years on roads in New Jersey and all over the US, Subaru releases a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition lineup. Follow us through 50 years of Subaru.

Subaru Rabbit S-1
Starts with a Scooter
Built under the Fuji nameplate, the Rabbit S-1 Scooter production kicked off in June 1946 –that’s even before the introduction of the Vespa.
Subaru 360
Subaru 360
From scooter to coupe, Subaru transitioned from the Rabbit S-1 with 150cc engine to the Subaru 360 coupe that was powered by a two-stroke engine – claiming up to 66.3 miles per gallon. An inexpensive yet distinctive economy coupe, the Subaru 360 was Subaru’s first automobile.
Subaru FF1
Subaru FF1
A first of its kind, Subaru introduced the first front-wheel drive car from Japan in 1969-1970 – the Subaru FF1. Available as a 4-door sedan, 4-door wagon & 2-door coupe, the heart of the Subaru FF1 was a water-cooled 1088-cc 4-cylinder engine paired with a 4-speed manual transmission.
Subaru Leone DL GL
Leone Series
Focusing on establishing the Subaru nameplate, the FF1 was replaced by the larger and more powerful “Leone Series”, simply marketed as either a DL or GL model – regardless of body style.
1975 Subaru DL GL Wagon
The Birth of the 4WD
In 1975, the Subaru DL/GL Wagon is the first model to offer “On-Demand” 4WD – the first 4-wheel drive passenger car sold in the US. This “first” establishes Subaru as the leader of the 4WD market.

  • Subaru DL Sedan, Motor Trend’s “1978 Import Car of the Year”
Subaru BRAT
Fun and Sun
Those looking for off-road adventures and the wind-in-their-hair experience, the Subaru BRAT (Bi-drive Recreational All-Terrain Transporter) appealed to younger consumers with its 2 bucket seats fixed to the open-bed back of this small dual-range 4WD.
Subaru ST-X
Subaru will later unveil the ST-X pickup in 2000, reminiscent of the BRAT. Built on a Legacy platform, the Subaru ST-X Concept features an extendable 55-inch bed and four full doors and is powered by a supercharged 230-horsepower SUBARU BOXER engine paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
Subaru Justy
Introduction of the CVT
The Subaru Justy came to the U.S. in 1987 and was the only car in the US sold with an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) at the time.
