Illustration for article titled Subaru Admits Defeat, Launches All-Wheel-Drive Turbo Diesel Hybrid Convertible BRZ On Monday

Apparently fed up with critics who say that the Subaru BRZ isn't getting the job done for enthusiasts on its own merits, the folks at Fuji Heavy will announce on Monday, April 1 that the next Subaru BRZ will have an all-wheel-drive turbo diesel convertible version in 2015.


There have been a ton of rumors about the next BRZ, so Subaru decided to just confirm all of them. Here's what they say about the car in a press release that came out a few days early:

A spokesman for the company said: “Having just launched the current model to widespread critical acclaim, we are tired of fighting off the constant speculation about what’s “next” and so we are just giving in and delivering all the speculation in one vehicle.”

The new model, which is expected to have a starting price, will however NOT come with a much anticipated rear back-up camera. The spokesman confirmed that after shoehorning two convertible switches (up and down) onto the fascia there just wasn’t room for any more instruments. The AWD Turbo Convertible two-seater Diesel Hybrid BRZ will come in a single color, noseeum black and will be hand produced at Subaru’s Brigadoon facility.


What more could you want in a pure sports car than all of those things? We can't wait to drive this bad boy, which is almost certainly legit and not a joke.
