Before Subaru, there was the Aircraft Research Laboratory.
The company, founded in 1915 by Japanese industrialist, politician, and cabinet minister Chikuhei Nakajima, takes off. In 1932, it gets reorganized, becoming the Nakajima Aircraft Company, and after World War II, it becomes Fuji Sangyo Co, Ltd.
That firm would, in 1946, manufacture the first Fuji Rabbit, the iconic motor scooter, from spare aircraft parts. By 1950, it would split into 12 smaller corporations, and soon after, between 1953 and 1955, five of them -- an engine maker, a chassis builder, the scooter manufacturer, a coachbuilder, and a trading company -- plus a newly formed company, would merge. They would form Fuji Heavy Industries, under CEO Kenji Kita, and quickly enter the car manufacturing fray.
Said division would become Subaru, named after the Pleiades star cluster, the brand's contemporary and now-unmistakable logo, and its heritage would become legend in the auto industry.
It's a story that, indeed, continues today, with the automaker now one of the most popular producers of cars and SUVs out there. Its offerings have ranged widely, from celebrated crossovers like Forester and Outback to sedans and hatchbacks such as the highly recognizable Legacy and Impreza. There have even been a few classics along the way as well, like Baja and Brat. Subaru even manufactures some of the most sought-after sports cars available these days, like WRX and the rear-wheel-drive BRZ. Moreover, the brand's also known worldwide for its innovations -- among them, its permanent AWD system, Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and its flat-four engine, the SUBARU BOXER.
