I like it, but I wonder what the weight distribution is going to be like. Not sure about the spoiler design as well.

Ricer rear wing. Hate the wheels. They needed some 5 spokes with concavity. Brembos and suspension are nice touch. Ruined the STI badge for this one though.

concept looks amazing! a little out of subarus element but i think they can do something with it. seems a little underpowered compared to other recent 2 door coupes, but im interested to see where this goes

edit: and dboz its just a concept man relax lol.

I read somewhere that this car will have close to 300bhp likely for a heftier price-tag if I'm not mistaken. The Scion model (FR-S) will be sporting 200bhp. Very cool car though, I can't wait to see what actually rolls off the production line.

0-60 in 6 sec? Needs better specs to keep up with the sporty looks.

although it does look nice, it doesn't look like subaru, no turbo no all wheel drive, i'm not sure i like this as a subaru, as long as they keep the original sti as well i'll be okay with this

Here is a link to Motortrend's 1st drive of the BRZ

Sounds like fun, needs more power. I'll be waiting until the mid life cycle refresh or possibly the next full model update.
