The 2017 Subaru BRZ Series.Yellow Edition Will Make Porsche Owners Weep Uncontrollably

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.


We have already made you aware of the extensive engine work Subaru put in to increase the power on the 2017 Subaru BRZ by five—that’s right, five— horsepower. You also know about the chassis and suspension upgrades that elevate the previous “sport” mode to “track” mode.

The new 911 RSR better watch its back!

With the limited edition Series.Yellow, Subaru aims to raise the BRZ to performance heights you couldn’t imagine in your wildest dreams, you peasant.


The brakes have been upgraded to Brembo four-piston calipers and rotors on the front and dual-piston calipers and rotors on the rear. For extreme handling, SACHS Performance shock absorbers have been added to get maximum grip.

Actually, all those performance upgrades are no different than the 2017 BRZ with the Performance Package, but the super exclusive Series.Yellow that is limited to 500 units will get you some yellow paint, trim and contrast stitching.


All that yellow is going to make you a fucking blur on the track.

As you’ll see in this Facebook Live video, one of our Creative Video Editors and Shooters, Jared Auslander, went to Wicked Big Meet this past Sunday at Stafford Motor Speedway to capture an exclusive look at the Series.Yellow BRZ. It turns out he, as well as our audience, was more interested in the other surprises that were in the trailer.


Did you just pay over sticker on a Cayman GT4? Fool. You better sell it before you get taken to task by some college kid in a yellow Subaru.
