Subaru BRZ Concept: Upcoming Sports Coupe?

Previous BRZ-themed concepts didn’t include bodywork, so now you know–kinda sorta–what this highly anticipated coupe will look like.

Underneath the taut WR Blue Pearl II paint is a new normally aspirated 2.0-liter boxer engine fueled by Toyota‘s gasoline direct injection. No output figures from the engine were released.

Subaru said the chassis has an STI-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes and BRZ-specific 18-inch wheels. Inside is a 2+2 seating layout.

The engine sits 4.7 inches lower and 9.4 inches further rearward than the engine in an Impreza. All of which suggests that the production BRZ will be pretty fun to drive. But we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find that out.
