However, the Sultan RS and [[Korean Mob]] Sultan are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on a Lexus (luxury subsidiary owned by Toyota) combined with a Mitsubishi; and the Intruder is based on Infiniti. But it should be noted that Toyota owns a small part of Subaru and the companies have made certain vehicles together ([[wp:Toyota_86#Subaru_BRZ|Toyota 86 & Subaru BRZ]]). It can also be implied that Karin is a Japanese luxury car manufacturer.

However, the Sultan RS and [[Korean Mob]] Sultan, including the original Sultan, are modified like Subarus even though they are both based on the Toyota Altezza (also known as the Lexus IS300); and the Intruder is based on an Infiniti model, though it has design cues from the Toyota MarkII and the Lexus LS430 (third gen). The Kuruma resembles more of a fusion between a Mitsubishi and a Subaru model, resembling nothing like any Toyota vehicles would.
 
The name might be a parody of [[wp:Kia|Kia]] as Kia and Karin are spelt similarly and are both girls' names; the logo also bears resemblance to their corporate logo (mainly the top left tip of the "''K''"). The name might also be a reference to Toyota's [[wp:Toyota Carina|Carina]] series.
