I saw a version of this post years ago when researching for this forum. I see it has been updated and mentions the Chinese connection. I keep meaning to insert a section for the Chinese made Yungue Called a Wow along with its a numbered model designation. Yungue purchased the used dies to stamp out a copy of the 2nd gen Rex which is the 1st model that is front wheel drive. However they installed the 4 cylinder 660 cc engine instead of the EK42 2 cylinder. they made lots of nice racy looking lower body moldings and rear spoilers too!
Here is a copy and paste from that post you linked.
Then in September, 1981 the second generation Subaru Rex switched to front-wheel-drive with a wheelbase of 225.5 cm. Suspension was now coil springs in front and at the rear (independent). The engine remained the same. There were a 3-door and a 5-door sedan, the more commercial versions being called Subaru Rex Combi. By October, 1983 a four-wheel-drive version (with independent rear suspension) was added, the first in the kei car industry (although competitors would follow in the same month) and in December of the same year a turbo arrived. In the export the car was called again Subaru 600 with a length of 324.5 cm (5-door 328.5 cm) and renamed Subaru 700 by September, 1982 when the engine was enlarged to 665 cc. In Europe the car was called Subaru mini Jumbo, in Australia Subaru Sherpa and in China the 5-door sedan is built as Yunque GHK 7060 (544 cc engine), which was widened at the end of 1998 to 146.2 cm (length 336.7 cm) and renamed Yunque GHK 7060A.
