What can a complete stock BRZ can do?
Driver of BRZ GT300, Tetsuya Yamano answered to this question.
Yamano is one of the top drivers in Japan. He's won 3 championships in Super GT GT300 class - 3 years in a row, in 3 different teams, and 3 different cars (NSX, MR-S, RX-7). That's why when Subaru first came to race in Super GT in 2007, Yamano was picked as their driver. It hadn't been easy though - RWD modded Impreza, nor 4WD Subaru Legacy had too many natural disadvantages. But having struggled for 5 years with Subaru, Yamano (and Subaru) had surely developed a race car that could win.
In 2012, Yamano as a BRZ GT300 driver owes a huge responsibility and pressure to win the race. And as well as the race car, he's also purchased a BRZ for himself to compete in All Japan Gymkhana Championship this year. There is no doubt he is the Mr. BRZ.

Subaru BRZ STi Concept in-depth tour! First time in The Netherlands!
Facebook: fb.me/spottergijsyt Twitter: twitter.com/SpotterGijs_YT
I filmed the official Subaru BRZ STi conceptcar at Subaru dealer Zuithof in Bornerbroek, The Netherlands. This is really unique footage since this car has only been at the Tokio Motorshow and at the Los Angeles auto show. And now I filmed it in The Netherlands! It's the first time its been in Europe so I'm really glad I could catch it on camera. I can honestly say this car is going to be absolutely epic! It looks great, so I hope Subaru has the guts to bring it on the market like this!

2013 Subaru BRZ vs Porsche 911 Carrera S Mile High Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Most people certainly won't cross shop a 2013 Subaru BRZ and the all new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Yet in many ways the two cars are very similar. They both have a similar type of flat engine, they both seat 2 comfortaby but you can get 4 people into the cars in a pinch, and they are both are classic rear wheel drive sports cars. Of course the Porsche cost 4X the money and has exactly 2X the horsepower of the BRZ and yet it is currently and possibly the most desired car by twenty something year olds. The Porsche is verging on super car status and yet it is possibly the most desired car by forty something year olds. Check it out as we mashup these two cars in this Mile High review to see what makes them so similar to each other.
