The Subaru BRZ is a collaboration with Toyota to bring a cheap lightweight RWD sports car to market. it's got a Subaru Boxer 200hp engine, weighs 2750lbs, and is supposed to handle like a miata/s2000/cayman. It costs $24,900 and should be arriving on our shores any day now. Subaru supplied the engine and the tuning, Toyota did the design. It will arrive in the US as a Scion FR-S, and the Subaru BRZ.. while everyone else in the world gets it as a Toyota GT86 as well as the Subaru version.

There is an STi version already confirmed, although it won't have a turbo nor will it have AWD. It will be a tweaked NA version offering 250hp, even lighter weight, and plenty of STi go fast parts. No sure if the STi version will be the same 2.0L engine, or if they'll upgrade it to the 2.5L.. but in any case, 250hp in a 2750lb package is going to be an awesome little car.

I drive that car already. it's called an rx-8. just went out of production though.

no car on that list has tq either. that's the downside to small high revving engines.

Subaru already confirmed that while a higher-performance model of the BR-Z will join the fold sometime in the future; there will never be an STI version.
