Subota to appear at L.A. auto show

Subaru’s worst kept secret over the past couple of years has finally been confirmed.

Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI) today announced the world premiere of the “Subaru BRZ Concept – STI” will happen at the L.A. Auto Show in mid November, ending years of speculation that Subaru would build a rear-wheel drive performance car.

The Subaru BRZ Concept STI is a concept car based on the Subaru BRZ, an all-new RWD compact sports car developed from an ongoing joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation. Built with Subaru’s core technology of the horizontally-opposed boxer engine, this model has a low centre of gravity that realizes a “Pure Handling Delight” driving experience. Combined with motifs of Subaru’s iconic performance brand “STI,” the concept car embodies ultimate performance.
