2014 Subaru BRZ STI

2014 Subaru BRZ STI coming with power and performance upgrades

The 2014 Subaru BRZ STI is coming next year and will get engine and suspension upgrades worthy of the STI badge.

The new 2014 Subaru BRZ with STI badging has been seen testing at Germany’s famed Nurburgring track for some time now which confirmed its existence. But it hasn’t been known what upgrades the new BRZ STI would get to improve performance. Motor Authority is reporting that the new 2014 BRZ STI will get substantial upgrades over the base BRZ and will be coming here to the U.S. next spring. It looks like Subaru is wrapping up testing of the new BRZ STI and is getting ready to launch the sports car first in Japan, then in Europe and the U.S. shortly thereafter.

Power and performance upgrades

When the BRZ STI concept made its debut in Los Angeles last year, Subaru global Marketing Manager Atoshi Atake told Auto Express, “We can develop the engine’s intake system; there is certainly room for improvement there.” While we have reported here about the new 2014 BRZ getting a turbo version, it looks like the new BRZ STI will not be turbocharged. With the small engine compartment on the BRZ, there may not be enough room to fit the large intercooler. At least for now, the turbo BRZ STI will have to wait.

Yeah! I want this new version in a convertible.
I'm buying one. Called today and placing my deposit tomorrow!!! It will be a proper little bugger now with the STI performance bits and the nice power bump. I only hope the big wing is deletable. Without the wing the beautiful lines are the draw to the eye. With the wing, I feel it may look a little ricey. Seems to tower over the roof. Wing aside, this is going to be a instant classic above even the vaulted base BRZ and has started a new arms race in the auto industry for affordable sports cars. Subaru, I thank you!!!
I agree wing as option. Not everyone wants to stand out. I am 64 and want performance not flash.
I couldn't agree more, I'm 26 and don't want a stupid wing if I put the money on this, unless it were functional for downforce of course at a low speed
Massive mistake to barely up the horsepower. What *EVERYONE* wanted to see was a 300hp Turbo version. Oh well. Chalk it up to a massive mistake and move on.
I think Subaru and Toyota had this car planned from the very beginning, they could have easily gotten more power out of the 2.0l boxer with a turbo right from the start, but they chose not to in order to keep the chasis balanced. Kudos to Subaru, As soon as the ability to order one of these happens I will surely put down a deposit. I also hope to god they hike up production next year (escpecially on the STi), it was so hard to find the limited in my area, I only found two automatic brzs in a dealer near pittsburgh.
I think I would get sick if the only BRZ's I could find in my area were automatics. That sucks. I feel for you man.
