Subaru BRZ Launch Date Revealed
We’ve already reported that a new Subaru BRZ is on the way. Now we have a date for the unveil.
It’s two weeks from today, on Nov. 18, according to this forum report.
We have a good idea what’s new — vents aft of the front wheels and new taillamps — and the rest will be revealed that Wednesday.
We did get some speculation in our earlier report, suggesting a spring 2021 production start date, power from a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated boxer four-cylinder engine with direct and port dual-injection, and power numbers of217 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. We don’t know about drivetrain or transmission or a potential Toyota version.
We will soon, though.
Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.
