Subaru BRZ STI Concept Promises Handling Delight

Subaru is promising many things with the BRZ - low weight, good handling, pure driving feel - but the only thing we want to know right now is if the BRZ STI Concept we see in the video above has a big intercooler on top and a turbo.
The full production version of the BRZ sportscar will look much like this with the exception of the go-faster bits when it debuts at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, but we’re really hoping STI will get in on the action and see that demand is there for a 300 hp version.

Right now, the bet thing you can expect from the BRZ is a bit over 210 hp from the brand new 2.0-liter flat-four that comes with Toyota’s D-4S port and direct injection technology. A six-speed manual powers the rear wheels, but it’s not clear right now if they’re also going to fit an automatic.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
