After incessant pressure from the automotive media, Subaru says they have decided to do the right thing and build an all-wheel drive twin-turbocharged diesel hybrid convertible.
In a prepared statement a Subaru spokesman said: “Having just launched the current model to widespread critical acclaim, we are tired of fighting off the constant speculation about what’s “next” and so we are just giving in and delivering all the speculation in one vehicle.”
Though Subaru hasn’t definitively outlined the new powertrain, it’s sure to be based upon the system powering the Viziv concept shown in Geneva last month.
The already highly acclaimed BRZ will be available in only one paint color: “noseeum.” Subaru plans to build the new BRZ at its Brigadoon facility.
Despite its technological features, the new BRZ will not feature a backup camera – but for good reason. “After shoehorning two convertible switches (up and down) onto the fascia there just wasn’t room for any more instruments.”
Though automotive enthusiasts have been overjoyed by the announcement, the virtually unanimous automotive media response could be summarized thusly, “What, no wagon variant with metallic brown paint?”
