Subaru BRZ Wears an STI Wing in New Teaser

What is Subie up to?

Subaru posted a picture of an STI-branded rear wing mounted to the trunk of a BRZ on Instagram today. Very few details were given other than the date June 8, 2017, which we assume is when the new product or whatever is being teased will be revealed.

The wing is made of carbon fiber and is joined to the BRZ's trunk via two stanchions. On the end plate you can see the STI logo. Camouflaged prototypes have been caught wearing this exact wing, though it's unclear whether it's part of a new performance package or an all-new STI variant. At the 2015 New York auto show, Subaru debuted a BRZ STI Performance concept, which featured a similar double-stanchion rear wing among other goodies. That car previewed the BRZ tS, which stood for "tuned by STI." A BRZ STI could be an evolution of the limited-edition tS, which got chassis and aero upgrades but no additional power. Although Subaru's top executives told us that a forced-induction-flavor BRZ wasn't in the works, we continue to hold out hope that a turbocharged or supercharged model will one day emerge.

It's worth noting that June 8 coincides with the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, an event primarily for motorcycles but one that Subaru has been involved with for some time. What do you think Subaru is teasing? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.

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
