Default Subaru BRZ


Subaru announces the name of their upcoming rear-wheel-drive, boxer engine coupe.

While Toyota and Scion announced several months ago the names of their version of the upcoming rear-wheel-drive coupe (the FT-86/FR-S), Subaru remained quiet on the matter for their version. There have even been three combined concepts shown of the FT-86/FR-S, but there's only been a brief display of the Subaru at last spring's Geneva show, although that was just a plexiglass concept showing off its boxer engine.

But now, Subaru has caught up to their fellow Japanese partners as they've officially released the name: BRZ. The letters stand for Boxer engine, Rear-wheel drive, and Zenith, which, according to their press release "embodies ultimate passion for the new sports car and confidence in its distinctive trademark and core technology: the 'Horizontally-Opposed' Subaru Boxer engine." Subaru has also announced they'll be unveiling a "technology concept," called the BRZ Prologue, at the Frankfurt Auto Show next month. No pictures of the concept were released, only this brief logo teaser.
Not sure if anyone has read about this yet. I thought the FT-86 was a Toyota/Subaru thing, but it appears Subaru is gonna have it's own name for theirs.

The only pics it shows are a see through teaser logo. I don't think it looks too bad. But, that's just me.

Ah my bad...that's why I normally don't start threads lol. I just saw it this morning on my CarBuzz app...figured it was fairly new.

This can be closed if need be.

My apologies again.
