Subaru is getting us all ready for the reveal of the next BRZ coupe. It all started with a super pixelated image posted to Subaru’s official Instagram page followed by a few teaser clips posted to their Instagram Stories.
In the end of those story clips a pole was posted challenging followers to guess if the car they were teasing was the new WRX or the next BRZ.
A quick click reveals a very clear image of half the front bumper underneath which is the announcement that the 2022 Subaru BRZ will be revealed on November 18th, 2020.
So, in about two weeks, we’ll all know more about the next BRZ. Though, a few lucky Subaru fans already got to see the car a month ago during the 2020 Subiefest world record attempt and charity drive.
It looks like those fans are die-hard brand loyalist or signed pretty hefty NDAs as it seems like nothing leaked from that event at all.
If I’m being honest, I haven’t been following the BRZ rumor-mill all that closely in recent months. All to say that I’m not sure what insiders and pundits say that we should expect from the 2022 BRZ or what items off the BRZ wish list will be checked off.
In fact, I have so little to go on that I don’t even think I could play my favorite game “let’s irresponsibly speculate”. Which is a bummer because I like I said, it’s my favorite game.
Anyway, looking at the teaser image from Instagram is pretty useless. The picture looks like it was taken from a gameboy camera. The best I can take away from it is that it appears that the side skirts and duck tail spoiler are a little more pronounced.
The real pay dirt is in the front end image posted on Subaru’s site. It really looks like the 2022 BRZ will have lines that are a touch softer and the headlights give off a strong Porsche Panamera vibe.
One of Jalopnik’s magic photoshop gnomes mirrored the photo to try and create a better look at what the front end will look like and they did a pretty good job.
Beyond some hints at the styling, I have no idea what to expect from the new BRZ but there are a few things I am hoping for.
First, I want it to have a turbo, because it’s a Subaru sports car and it should have a freakin’ turbo.
Second, I want Subaru to stop fussing around and actually produce a proper STi version. Not some variant color, bronze wheeled, badge job; but an legit snarling road-weapon worthy of the STi moniker.
Who knows if any of that will happen though. Either way, I’m going to tune on on November 18th to find out!
