BRZ AWD Option
 
I'm new to this board so this may have already been asked. But is there any chance Subaru has plans to offer an AWD version of the BRZ? The current RWD only option would be a big purchase barrier for me so I'm wondering if there are plans to add AWD soon.

The position of the engine/transmission is all wrong for AWD.

Minor TT rival? That sounds interesting.

All signs are currently pointing to no.

you are looking for the wrong car

BRZ doesn't need it. It needs to stay lightweight and RWD.

Agreed. Subaru already makes an AWD version of the BRZ. It's called the Impreza. :lol:

This again?

You should not even consider a BRZ as you apparently just don't get it.

The WRX may come in coupe form. That'll perform the same function an AWD BRZ would perform.

Now they just need to make STI versions of everything (yes, even the Legacy and Forester), and sell them in the US!!!

Not likely. Too expensive to federalize for not enough buyers. Subaru will stick with the profitable stuff.

out of curiosity, why does the car you drive have to be AWD?
