First Look: Subaru BRZ Concept to debut at 2011 LA Auto Show

Subaru confirmed today that it will finally show the first completed concept version of its rear-wheel-drive sports coupe known a the BRZ. The Subaru BRZ is built alongside the Toyota FT-86 and both coupes will be making their production debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show later this year.

“Dubbed the Subaru BRZ Concept- STI, the concept car represents the next step in lightweight performance sports cars combined with the race-bred tuning of Subaru Technica International (STI),” Subaru said in a statement. “The first BRZ concept car to be shown with bodywork, the Concept – STI strongly hints at the styling of the production BRZ and features unique STI performance features.”

Power for the Subaru BRZ comes from a 2.0 liter naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder boxer engine that has been designed with a square bore and stroke of 86 x 86 mm. The engine is mated to a direct injection fuel system, which further improves combustion efficiency, running smoothness up to high rpm and high environmental standards.

The Subaru BRZ Concept also undergoes a lot of STI touches with an STI-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes and 18-inch wheels and tires.

We’ll have more details for you live from the 2011 LA Auto Show starting Nov. 16.
