  • 2019 Subaru BRZ

Buyers will also have a new BRZ Series.Gray Edition model to choose from, but the higher performance tS model does not return. We'll start with the Series.Gray Edition since it's the major change for the 2019 BRZ lineup. The special edition is priced at $31,025 and begins life as a BRZ Limited model. Subaru adds the optional Performance package as standard equipment for the Series.Gray and finishes the car in Cool Gray Khaki paint. Additionally, the...

    2018 Subaru BRZ tS first drive review: less sideways, more stick

    The Subaru BRZ has been focused on handling and fun since its introduction in 2011. Dynamic drivability comes naturally in a lightweight sports car, after all. For 2018, the STI-tuned Subaru BRZ tS sharpens its handling further—nearly to the point of leaving bare the car’s power...

  • 2018 Subaru BRZ tS

    Subaru is set to unveil two new models on June 8, and both of them are headed to the United States. One of these will be a WRX STI Type RA, essentially a more hardcore version of the already hardcore sport sedan. The other will be a new BRZ tS. Previously offered in Japan, the BRZ tS isn’t a dedicated performance model like we’re used to seeing from STI but a milder “tuned by STI” model fitted with bolt-on parts. Look for upgrades to chassis, though don’t hold your breath for any extra power. The current BRZ is powered by a 2.0-liter flat-4 delivering 205...

    If you're still complaining about the Subaru BRZ's lack of turbo, you probably don't quite understand how Subaru--with help from Toyota--developed this sports car.

  • 2017 Toyota 86

For those of you interested in buying the affordable rear driver, perhaps you should hold off for a while as it seems a successor is in the works. Toyota Europe boss Karl Schlicht confirmed to Autocar that an 86 successor was coming. The British publication suggests the car will arrive on the market around 2019. Schlicht's comments follow those of Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, the boss of Subaru parent company Fuji Heavy Industries, who in 2014 said a redesigned BRZ would be...

  • 2014 Subaru BRZ tS

    Stunt driver Alastair Moffatt has set the Guinness World Record for the tightest 360-degree spin in a Subaru BRZ. At 2.25 meters, or 7 feet, 4.6 inches, longer than the 13.9-foot BRZ, the new record beats the old record by 9.84 inches. The attempt took place over the weekend at the Autosport International Show's Live Action Arena in Birmingham, England. The Englishman performed the stunt by driving the rear-wheel-drive BRZ ("BR Zed" in English-speak) between two rows of parked cars 2.25 meters apart. To make the stunt official, he had to repeat it, which took several attempts. The previous...
