Subaru BRZ STI Sport Concept Heads to Tokyo Auto Salon 2017

Subaru is debuting one good-looking BRZ at the Tokyo Auto Salon next month. The coupe, dubbed the Subaru BRZ STI Sport Concept, delivers a host of cosmetic upgrades and, according to the automaker, "STI-tuned driving performance."

The model is based on the BRZ GT that's sold outside of the U.S. Here, that model will be known as the BRZ with the Performance package when it arrives in late 2017. On top of special touches afforded by the Performance model, the concept adds unique bodywork, special 18-inch wheels, and STI badging. Open the doors, and you're greeted with a rich wine-colored interior.

Along with the special BRZ, the automaker will also showcase four race models, including the WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016 that won two consecutive championships in the SP3T class at the 24 Hours of Nrburgring race. The other three race-going models include the BRZ GT300 2016, WRX STI for Japan Rally Championship, and BRZ CG Robot Racing 2017. Also look for a WRX S4 STI Sport Concept as well as special STI versions of the Levorg and Impreza G4.

Inspiration in car building can come from just about any direction and, more often than not, thrives when influence from outside the norm works its way into a builder’s final product, and this 1991 Honda Civic is a prime example of that notion. Borrowing from multiple styles helped create a one-of-a-kind ED chassis Civic that

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent
