Why performance fans are disappointed in the 2015 Subaru BRZ
The 2015 Subaru BRZ has been introduced and it’s a sports car that was built for sheer driving pleasure. But why are BRZ fans disappointed in the 2015 model? Performance fans wanted the BRZ to be updated with a more powerful engine, but it still comes with the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated 200 horsepower boxer engine. BRZ fans are looking for turbocharged version of the the 2.0-liter engine with more power.
2015 special edition models
The U.S. market gets the 2015 Subaru BRZ Series.Blue, Canada gets the BRZ Sport-Tech Aozora Edition. But these cars are just BRZ models with STI trim and some minor upgrades to the body and suspension. These BRZ sports cars look good and will be fun to drive, but they still don’t meet performance buyers expectations.
When Subaru and Toyota first began to dream about collaborating in building a new rear-drive two-door sports coupe, the wanted an affordable car that would have a mantra of “sheer driving pleasure.” Subaru and Toyota accomplished this in a big way. The BRZ/GT86/FR-S are great drivers cars.
Subaru BRZ prototypes
They first built a prototype which was based on a modified Legacy. The first prototype was built to prove the low center of gravity concept. The front driveshafts were removed and the engine placed as low and as far back as possible, both of which to ensure the weight was in exactly the right place.
