2014 Subaru BRZ STI Release Dates and Spy Shots

2014 Subaru BRZ STI Spy Shots. The Subaru BRZ made its debut at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. Do you know, what is STI ? STI is Subaru Tecnica International. Then, at the 2012 Australian Motor Show, Subaru unveiled another BRZ Concept, this time fitted with a number of performance accessories developed by STI that were promised to be on sale in the near future. From the first concept comes an oversized rear wing, and from the second is STI’s new body kit for the BRZ consisting of a front spoiler, side sills and rear diffuser.

The 2014 Subaru BRZ STI also wears the second concept’s 17-inch light alloy wheels, and it looks to be sitting slightly lower than the regular BRZ, suggesting the suspension has been upgraded. As for powertrain mods, it’s impossible to tell from these initial shots. The exhaust tips on this prototype appear to be slightly larger than the units on the regular BRZ, which suggests better flow. Subaru has also developed a turbocharged version of the BRZ’s 2.0-liter flat-four, complete with the automaker’s own direct-injection system rather than the Toyota system normally used. However, Subie's signature turbo hood scoop is missing on this prototype so it may still be naturally aspirated.

A series of weight-saving mods is likely to have been utilized, which, unlike a turbo, is in keeping with the BRZ's puristic sports car philosophy. We’ll just have to wait until more details surface before we can be certain what STI has planned for the BRZ, but the good news is that wait may not be very long. Automakers tend to run their prototypes sans camouflage gear when the vehicle is about to be revealed, so it’s likely we’ll be seeing the new Subaru BRZ STI unveiled within the coming months, possibly at the upcoming L.A. or Detroit auto shows. 2014 Subaru BRZ STI mass production models will be officially released in the Los Angeles Auto Show.
