The Subaru BRZ Concept STI is the second FR car from Subaru - the first
being Subaru's first car ever, the Subaru 1500. BRZ stands for "Boxer,
Rear-wheel drive, Zenith," or "Boxer Renaissance Zenith." The Toyota 86 is
a sports car developed jointly by Japanese automobile manufacturers Toyota
and Subaru. It has 2+2 seats, a 2-door coupé body style and a
front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout.
The model will be sold under three different brands: Toyota (Toyota 86 in
Japan and Australia and Toyota GT-86 in Europe), Subaru (Subaru BRZ) and
Scion (Scion FR-S).
"86" (pronounced "eight-six" or Hachi-Roku (ハチロク)) refers to the
Toyota Corolla Levin series AE86 and the Toyota Sprinter Trueno series
AE86, a particular series of cars sold between 1983 and 1987 (The Trueno
was a hatchback, and the Levin had a trunk ). As such, the Toyota 86 has
been named as the spiritual successor of the original AE86 during the press
release of the 86.
The signifigance of the reference to the series AE86 was that both the
Trueno and Levin of this series were the last with rear wheel drive; the
following Sprinter Trueno and Corolla Levin series AE92 were released with
front wheel drive thereafter.
The Toyota and Scion have little distinguishing elements - the latter has
cheaper pieces to reduce base price in the United States. The Subaru BRZ
differs mainly in its front end, where the grille has an hexagonal shape
versus an inverted trapezoid in the Toyota and Scion, along with the
placement of the BRZ as the most luxurious variant of the platform, with
more standard features and a higher suggested price than the
Toyota-marketed versions.
In Japan, it will be exclusive to Toyota Japan dealerships called Netz
Store locations, which uses the same sales approach used at North American
sales channel called Scion.
It was first presented as a concept car at the October 2009 Tokyo Motor
Show under the name Toyota FT-86, FT being shorthand for "Future Toyota".
Later, a high-performance version was launched at the January 2010 Tokyo
Auto Salon as the Toyota FT-86 G Sports. At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, a
third concept car was shown, the Toyota FT-86 II. The BRZ and FR-S also had
their concept cars, the Subaru BRZ Concept STI and the Scion FR-S Concept.
The production version of the 86, BRZ and FR-S were unveiled at the 2011
Tokyo Motor Show.
Initially, the 86 and sister models will feature a Subaru-sourced naturally
aspirated 2.0 L flat-4 boxer gasoline engine (Toyota engine code 4U-GSE,
Subaru engine code FA20) that will deliver 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp) that
includes a direct injection system from Toyota. The model will be offered
with two six-speed transmissions: a manual and an automatic with paddle
shifters. The weight of the 86 is 1,180 to 1,250 kilograms (2,600 to 2,760
lb) depending on specification and equipment.
