Subaru BRZ

Video: Driving A 430-Horsepower Subaru BRZ

We love the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S. We enjoy a 200-horsepower, rear-drive car that can mix it up on back roads or at the track, with the sense that you could never really do anything to overpower it. We like the challenge of wringing every last drop of power out of its 2.0-liter flat-four.

Subaru Has Announced The Ultimate BRZ

Look, we like the Subaru BRZ. We like its brother from another mother, the Scion FR-S. We haven’t driven it, but hell, we like the Toyota GT 86. But somehow, these sportscars just aren’t quirky enough. The flat-four is a boring choice for an engine, at least in today’s world.

Comparison Test: 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec vs. 2013 Scion FR-S vs. 2013 Subaru BRZ

Essentially, a lot of what this comparison comes down to is how you, as a driver, get your kicks. If you’re the type of person who needs power and outright speed, the Genesis Coupe 2.0T R-Spec will probably win your dollars. And, it still won’t let you down in other aspects of driving, especially when it comes to livability. If you draw pleasure from magical, telepathic handling, and from the challenge of keeping momentum, you’ll likely prefer either the Subaru BRZ or the Scion FR-S (and which of those you’d prefer likely depends own your suspension philosophy or brand loyalty).

Driven: 2013 Scion FR-S

And we should add that—after experiencing a bevy of canyon, track and highway miles—we’re pretty confident the Scion FR-S is not for every sports car buyer, despite its excellence. If you’re seriously interested in this car, you’ll want to stay tuned and understand why.

First Look: 2013 Subaru BRZ

Unlike the Toyota GT 86 that we posted earlier (which could, but probably won’t, be tweaked when it gets its Scion badge), this is most certainly what the Subaru BRZ will look like when it hits North American shores.

First Look: 2013 Toyota GT 86

This is, maybe, possibly, hopefully the car that will be known as the Scion FR-S when it appears in the United States. Of course, we probably won’t see the Scion badged version until January’s Detroit Auto Show. In the mean time though, the world debut of the Toyota GT 86 offers quite a bit of information about the car that will debut in about six weeks.

LA 2011: Subaru BRZ Concept – STI

We’re getting closer and closer to the start of the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, and with it, the official unveiling of the hotly anticipated rear-wheel-drive Subaru BRZ (and its platform mate, the Scion FR-S/Toyota FT-86). In the mean time, Subaru has released this teaser of an STI-ified version of the BRZ.
