From a recent media interview, Michael McHale, Director of Corporate Communications Subaru of America, confirmed the STI version of the BRZ will be coming in “a couple years” (quoting his original words).
There is no further information at this point. However, we guess the BRZ STI will be the production version of the STI Performance Concept, which Subaru has debuted in the 2015 New York auto show.
The Subaru STI concept car shown in the NY auto show is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0L flat-4 engine, producing 345hp. With such level of power, we believe it should satisfy buyers who want more power and are thinking the current BRZ is underpowered.
