Hmm, this article from Motortrend on the new Subaru BRZ (click the picture for the link) is pretty interesting. Definatley a new venture for Subaru producing a RWD performance coupe. Seems like a lot of their aim is for it to be like a Miata.
Would I buy one? Well that depends, from the very little info out there now it seems like a car that would be a fun to track or auto-x, but in terms of practicality I'm not so sure. I love the room that the STi has and feel its the perfect "do anything" car. Then again this is just a prototype first of all, and second it doesn't seem practicality is their goal for this particular model. We'll have to wait and see, but what I like is Subaru and Toyota working together to further both companies. I do want to see a boosted FA engine if the NA version is putting out around 200 hp.
