"... Those are stock?"
"Yeah"

Yeah it seems like the FR-S is getting the lion's share of publicity, so the average Joe knows only about that one and not about the BRZ. I've heard plenty of people say "oh look that's the new FR-S"! Doesn't really bother me, they are basically the same car.

Scion has already had an advertisement out since... Super Bowl? I don't think Subaru has done any TV or radio marketing at all. That would probably explain the disparity in knowledge amongst the average Joe(s).

I stand (sit?) corrected.

I have yet to see or hear any BRZ marketing on TV or radio, though.

Subaru doesn't really advertise the WRX or STI anymore either. These niche cars kind of sell themselves.

Most of the ads I've seen here (Vancouver) are for the Forester. Most of the radio ads are also for the Forester, but there have also been some "general" Subaru radio ads as well, ie. no specific model, just advertising cash incentives and financing rates.

Oh, wait - when the Crosstrek XV first came out, they had a bit of a marketing push as well. Almost forgot about that one.

That guy was so stupid that I can only assume he was related to the op.
