Subaru unveiled the long-windedly named Subaru BRZ PROLOGUE—BOXER Sports Car Architecture II concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. And beyond the three-letter B-R-Z identifier, which translates into “Boxer engine.” “Rear-wheel drive” and “Zenith,” the company also dropped some production info and a few basic specs. Expect the BRZ assembly line to spark to life in the spring of 2012.
Subaru also announced the swoopy coupe will be 165 inches long, 69.7 inches wide, 50 inches tall and flex a 101-inch wheelbase. Before you bust out the measuring tape 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 will be running the show and output is expected to be in the 200-horse range but these details are still conjecture. Either way, get those STI swaps ready!
