2013 Subaru BRZ Limited vs. Route Napoleon - Road Test - Car Reviews - Car and Driver
0 - 60 mph: 6.3 seconds
1/4 mile: 14.9 seconds
Automatic is a lot slower than the manual. Well over a full second slower.
0 à 100 km/h : 8"1 (mesure Motorsport)
TopGear's Paul Horrell has a go, apparently at the French release. Thanks to Spaceywilly for the scans.
I look forward to long term tests. Hopefully the car won't be another RX8 in fuel consumption.
I think the fuel consumption is the least of the car's concerns! Right now it has to sought entry into the 'drivers' car' club in the first place. Really want to drive one to tell for myself.
Turbo Version of Subaru's BRZ's FA-Series Engine Debuts in Japanese Legacy
We recently confirmed that we won’t be seeing a turbocharged Subaru BRZ anytime soon; however, we now have a fairly good idea of what kind of power such a model will eventually bring. Subaru has dropped the first turbocharged variant of its 2.0-liter, FA-series flat-four engine—the naturally aspirated version of which powers the BRZ and its Toyota/Scion brethren—into the refreshed Japanese-market Legacy sedan and wagon.
The turbo FA20′s output numbers are impressive: 300 PS and 400 Nm of torque. In the JDM Legacy, the engine is bolted to Subaru’s CVT, likely for fuel-economy reasons.
Whoa, look at that torque plateau (not even a curve anymore)!
Arghhhhh!!! Why does Subaru keep giving an automatic transmission BRZ to testers??
A manual transmission BRZ would be very a tight race with the Honda S2000.
Honda S2000 would kill even the manual BRZ.
I've heard of some opportunistic dealers adding a "market adjustment" of $2500-7000 on these things. Nice way to turn people off on the car and the brand. Looks like some are already racing them.
Mark Higgins tries it out on the Manx Rally stages:

Consumer Reports gets in on the sideways action LOL.
I really like this little car. I like the Subie infinitely more than the Toyota version also. All it needs is a little more power.
^Wow, that's ultra-slow for a 200-hp-car...
What did you expect ?
