Golden-wheel manufacturer has finally made their fifteen millionth boxer engine

Subaru has passed an unusual milestone after 49 years of keeping its boxers really flat and rolled out the fifteen millionth boxer engines for its golden-wheeled WRX crossover. Legacy and Outback  models will also use this newly born monster.

The Japanese automaker has been using the flat boxers in their cars. These engines allow flatter working operations by sitting the car more aerodynamic and give better position for lower centre of gravity. Today’s Subaru engines are prevailing and very balanced to give an uncommon acoustic signature.

Subaru is one of the just few automakers who still utilise boxer engines, just because of a joint venture with Toyota Motors. Toyota also uses the boxer engine in its prevailing GT86 and Scion FR-S. The FB25, a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine is the most tuned-up version of the boxer engines and will be used in the Legacy and Outback with different state of tunes.

Other boxer engines like the 2.0 litre units are retuned for the BRZ models and a 3.6 litre flat six engine which Porsche uses in its 911, Boxster and Cayman sports model line-ups.

Subaru and STI have attained this high-performance from its 2.0-litre and 2.5-litre boxer engines after their involvement in motorsports spanning over decades. Subaru so far has not only achieved the milestone of building fifteen millionth boxer engine, but it has also manufactured their fourteen millionth symmetrical all-wheel drive system.
