The Subaru BRZ: Affordable Performance

The Subaru BRZ's History

The Subaru BRZ's origins extend back to humble origins - the Toyota Corolla. The Toyota AE86 remains an icon of the automotive industry worldwide, showing the world that four-cylinder, two-door, small and nimble vehicles can deliver an exhilarating driving experience, and essentially created the drifting subculture. Eventually, Subaru and Toyota partnered in 2009, nearly two-decades after producing the last AE86, to release the FT-86 concept. Holding true to the original layout, the FT-86 was sold in the United States by Subaru under a different name in the following years: the Subaru BRZ. The name "BRZ" comes from the construction of the vehicle itself: "Boxer engine", "Rear-wheel drive", "Zenith".
