You aren’t ready for all the massive performance upgrades to the base 2017 Subaru BRZ. So unless your last name is Röhrl, there is no way you will even be able to handle the BRZ Series.Yellow, because Subaru just sent Porsche packing with this special edition.
The Subaru BRZ is such a great driver’s car, it might make you cringe when I tell you that Mississippi State University turned one into a plug-in hybrid. What won’t make you cringe, though, are the performance figures.
Hey look! Some tuners modified a Toyobaru BRZR-S with some aero bits, bigger brakes, a retuned suspension and a tiny bit more horsepower! And it won’t come to America! Outstanding!
“I’m just kind of the victim of a good deal.” Owning and driving two Toyota AE86’s can be a good deal, indeed.
The Subaru BRZ is a scalpel among sports cars, capturing the imagination of the “I learned to heel-and-toe before I walked” crowd from the moment it was announced. What do you need to know before you buy a Subaru BRZ? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you in our Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
It's probably not an STI version. Or maybe it is?
Toyota announced a redesigned version of the GT86 (which we in the states know as the Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ) with a great-looking new front end that I think gives it the classic look of an old 240Z or an E-Type. It's called the Cb, which I'm told stands for "Cool Beauty." I'm also told it's "for women." Come on,…
In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society. Her father had forced her out of her own class but could not raise her to the next. To the men of the one she had left, she had become too select to marry; to those…
Let's get this out of the way first. This is simply the most Jalop series in racing today. Perhaps nothing more needs to be said than that the two front-running teams are the Cadillac CTS-Vs and the K-Pax Volvo S60s. If that doesn't float your boat it's almost guaranteed your favorite manufacturer is represented.
Almost every racing fan and avid Jalopnik reader under the age of 37 knows who Ken Block is. Oh... you mean Ken Block the DC Shoe brand creator, GoPro slinger, Tire Slaying Hoonigan, and Gymkhana master? Yeah, I've heard of him. But do you know the man behind one of motorsport's most recognizable logos? He's just a…
I think pretty much everyone agrees the BRZ/FR-S/Toyota 86 triumvirate is a good time on four wheels, and we're just at the cusp of what will likely be a vast ocean of race-bred variations. It looks like the Monsterization machines over in Fukishima Prefecture have been working overtime, and the result is the Super…
I don't know if you guys heard about this or not, but the northeast got a teeny bit of snow the other day. Nothing too crazy, just about 30 inches in some areas. Thousands without power, people stuck on the freeways, NBD.
Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.
More rumors are trickling out about a purported hopped-up STI version of everyone's current favorite rear-wheel-drive Subaru, the BRZ.
The graphics look like something out of an old version of Grand Theft Auto. There are no sexy babes, or dancing hamsters, or dubstep. And yet the newest Subieyota ad is the best we've seen in years.
Toledo, Ohio's Accelerated Performance created a stir last month with the first turbocharged BRZ. When they popped up on the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club forum last month, John Visconti had squeezed 54.5 extra horsepower out of the Subaru BRZ's stock 2-liter engine.
Two of the most acclaimed cars of the past year have to be the Toyota/Subaru twins, the BRZ and the FR-S. While they aren't the fastest or most luxurious cars on the road, they have a fantastic chassis, great gearbox, and some sublime handling that you can drift at the flick of a wrist.
