Yet another special-edition Subaru has quietly arrived in recent weeks, with the 2017 BRZ Sports Pack special edition on sale from $36,694 before on-road costs. Like other BRZ specials before it, the Sports Pack doesn’t add any engine upgrades over the standard car, though there are several visual and equipment upgrades to give the Toyota 86 twin a little […]

birthing twins is no easy feat. surprise or shock, perhaps both, might follow a doctor’s announcement to a couple that suddenly twice the expected number of fresh entrants to the world will soon be crying, spewing and definitely not sleeping. Show More Summary
It’s a good problem to have. You want to buy a new sports car, but you want more poke than either a Mazda MX-5 or Subaru BRZ/Toyota 86 can offer. It can’t be front-wheel drive, and your budget rules out more expensive Euros from the likes of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz. So, what are your […]
The 2017 Toyota 860 Special Edition is, as the name suggests, a special version of the Toyota/Scion/Subaru FR-S/BRZ sports coupe. They’re pretty wonderful cars to begin with. They’re light; nice low center of gravity thanks to that Subbie-sourced boxer-4 engine, good braking, all that stuff. Think of them as a coupe version of a Miata, […]
While I was more than happy with the amount of power in the latest Toyota-badged Toyobaru, the 2017 Toyota 86, I realize that its continued existence relies on the approval of the masses who aren’t me. Those masses would really appreciate it if Subaru’s STi branch slapped a turbo on that lil’ 205 horsepower flat-four.… Read more...

Now that the old Scion FR-S has been inherited back into the Toyota lineup as the GT 86, the Japanese brand has finally realized it needs to offer people more than just one trim level, which Subaru has been doing with the BRZ for awhile. Enter the new Toyota GT 860 Special Edition. Read more...
The Subaru BRZ (also produced for Toyota as the GT86) is a snappy sportster but [megahercas6]’s old US version had many navigation and entertainment system features which weren’t useful or wouldn’t work in his native Lithuania. He could have swapped out the built in screen for a large 4G Android tablet/phone, but there’s limited adventure in that. Show More Summary
Finally, something new from Subaru, I was beginning to wonder about them. The new 2017 Subaru BRZ is a modernized, better looking model that will bring Subaru its old flame. More power, more speed, more of everything if you would like will make a change in the market. A fans of tunning shows will love … The post 2017 Subaru BRZ appeared first on CarsFeatured.
Power up front, drive to the back, a stick-shift in the middle – it’s how nature intended sports cars to be. And these two purist offerings – the 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF and the updated 2017 Subaru BRZ – are true to that formula. Both of these Japanese, sporty, fun and affordable cars may follow […]
That the 2017 Subaru BRZ will be a precise, well-balanced, enthusiast-focused, affordable sportscar, is a given. We’ve been impressed by the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ twins since we first sampled them. It’s hard to believe that was already five years ago though (2012), and with the release of the updated 2017 model, both have now had […]

Ah, the classic “mid-life” update. The facelift. That magical moment when a manufacturer can take stock of what’s working, what’s not, and makes a few choice changes. For cars that are already good—like the Subaru BRZ—the right improvements could make them great. Very rarely does an updated version of an already… Read more...
