Ever wonder what it would look like if Subaru made a big brother to the BRZ, maybe to take on the Nissan GT-R or Japan's Super GT series? (Well, the BRZ already competes in the GT300 class, but we're talking about the GT500 major leagues here.) Wonder no more, car fans, because it'd probably look something like this. Show More Summary

FR-S Targa Headlines Scion's SEMA Show Act

There's been a lot of speculation about a convertible version of the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ twins, but what about a targa? Scion will unveil a targa-topped FR-S at the 2014 SEMA show next week.

Subaru BRZ Special Edition

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : TopSpeed

Subaru has another special-edition model for the BRZ. Raise your hand if you think it’s becoming a tad too much.

Subaru BRZ SE

3 months agoVehicles / Cars : TopSpeed

The Subaru BRZ isn’t getting a facelift anytime soon, but over in the UK, the BRZ is getting — or at least getting back — the entry level SE trim. It doesn’t sound that sexy, that much I think we can all agree on. But it does give customers in the UK a cheaper BRZ alternative than the ones they’re currently getting. Show More Summary

Subaru BRZ "Albino Rhino"

4 months agoVehicles / Cars : TopSpeed

I don’t think I’m the only one who has been disappointed with the underwhelming aftermarket programs given to the Subaru BRZ.
