2013 Subaru BRZ to Bow at LA Auto Show



Quote:
The Subaru version of Toyota's FT-86 sports car has been overshadowed for its entire pre-existence with the big T showing sexy concepts at international auto shows while Subie was left with displaying significantly less-sexy bits like the chassis and engine. That, however, will change at the LA Auto Show, where Subaru is tipped to reveal its rear-drive sports car, the BRZ, in all of its glorious sheetmetal.

But wait, no..... it won't be the production car, just a concept. And if the reports prove to be accurate it will be an over-the-top STI-inspired model.

As for the production car, we expect it to finally see the light of day, along with its Toyota sibling, at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show.

Like it's Scion FR-S sibling, the BRZ is expected to hit production with a direct-injection boxer 4-cylinder making around 200-hp.

Look for more info in the run-up to the 2011 LA Auto Show, which takes place November 16-17.

One can only hope the concept looks sporty as how Toyota has stolen all of the thunder at this point. I will look forward to seeing some actual sheetmetal on this car.

Bah I'm sticking with the FFR 818. The wife gave me the okay to have a project car, so I figure that will be where I go. Mice looking car, but it's N/A
