Subaru’s version of the Scion FR-S RWD sports car, which is currently under joint development with Toyota Motor Corporation, will be named the Subaru BRZ. BRZ stands for “Boxer engine,” “Rear-wheel drive,” and “Zenith.” Get it?

But the big news is Subaru indicated production is planned to start in spring 2012.

The company also released some specs, namely the key dimensions. The BRZ will be 165 inches long, 69.7 inches wide, 50 inches tall and sport a 101-inch wheelbase. For comparison, the current WRX hatch is 173.8 inches long, 70.7 inches wide, 58.1 inches tall and runs a 103.3-inch wheelbase. A 2.0-liter, direct-injected boxer-4 rated somewhere in the 200hp neighborhood will power the proceedings.
