Subaru BRZ Concept Coming to LA Auto Show

It's about time: The Subaru BRZ concept (with real body panels) will be premiering at the LA Auto Show this November.

We thought that it may never happen. After three Toyota FT-86 concepts and one Scion FR-S concept, we'll finally be seeing the concept of Subaru's version of the upcoming rear-wheel-drive sport coupe at the LA Auto Show this November. And the best part? It won't have see-through body panels. The upcoming BRZ concept, according to Car and Driver, will have full sheetmetal, but there's a catch: None of the body panels will make it to the final car.

Fortunately, the production version will be making its official debut along the Toyota FT-86 and Scion FR-S at the Tokyo Motor Show the following month. All will reportedly have very similar sheetmetal and the only major exception will be the front end design. The Toyota and Scion will be nearly identical except for badging. The coupes will be powered by a Subaru-developed 2.0-liter boxer engine that'll produce somewhere in the neighborhood of 260hp and will be mated to a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. Pricing is expected to start off at around $27,000.
