New Details Emerge of the Subaru BRZ

Industry News

As unveiling day approaches, more details are starting to emerge of the Subaru BRZ and Toyota FT-86.

As the date for the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show draws ever nearer, we are gradually discovering more about the Subaru BRZ and Toyota FT-86; the latter of which will be known stateside as the Scion FR-S. Thus far we know that they will share the bulk of their body panels, will have a common rear-wheel drive platform, and a 2.0-liter Boxer engine. We now know that power outputs will differentiate the BRZ from its Toyota-badged cousin, with the BRZ's at around 300hp and the FT-86's closer to the 200hp mark.

The BRZ coupe is also set to have the lowest center of gravity of any production car when it hits the market next summer. Although details about the final specs remain under wraps, insiders suggest that the differences will come in the form of unique grilles, bumpers and interior appointments. A convertible version of the Subaru also remains a consideration and has been engineered to work as one but no solid plans currently exist for this. Even without an image of the production car or a price indication, Subaru fans are continuing to pester dealerships, which must be music to the ears of the Japanese manufacturer.
