Never say never, but it's doubtful that uber-rivals Ford and GM would ever collaborate on anything, much less the joint development of a sports car. Too much pride, too much sacred brand identity, too much competitive drive. And that's OK, because Toyota and Subaru have no such reservations. Say hello to the twins, Scion's FR-S and Subie's BRZ. They're slightly different in looks and comfort, but in terms of greatness they're identical. No less an authority than Consumer Reports magazine labeled both cars a “Top Pick” in its April auto issue.

The drivers of a Subaru Impreza and a Chevrolet Impala darted in and out of rush-hour traffic on Route 32 in Gambrills at raceway speeds. When the Subaru driver slammed on his brakes, his vehicle spun out of control and smashed into a Mazda 626, killing him and the Mazda's passenger. Authorities said the accident Tuesday morning underscores the perils of aggressive driving, which they said is a growing problem in the county.

Firehouse Tavern was Carney's longtime watering hole, the kind of neighborhood joint that lived up to the cliche about a place where everyone knows your name. At 10:30 Monday night, with the weekly darts tournament in full swing and the two pool tables hopping, the 40 or so people who had gathered there couldn't hear the screaming whine of a Subaru Outback headed their way -- not until it burst through the wall at an estimated speed of 100 mph. "I was waiting in line for a beer and the next thing I know I was on top of a car. I didn't know it was a car until everything settled down.

MOUNT MAUNA KEA, Hawaii -- In a mountaintop ceremony bringing together a Japanese princess and members of the Hawaiian royal order wearing crimson robes, Japan inaugurated on Friday what many astronomers expect will soon prove to be the world's most powerful land-based telescope. Experts who gathered under a dazzling sun at the 13,796-foot summit of Mount Mauna Kea, Hawaii's tallest mountain, said the 26.9-foot instrument, known by the Japanese name for the constellation Pleiades, or Subaru, would help propel Japan from astronomical obscurity into the highest echelons of space-observing nations.
