2013 Subaru BRZ
The BRZ’s spec sheet starts with rear-wheel drive (a shocker coming from Subaru), 200 horses/155 pounds-feet of torque, and a 6 speed transmission of either manual or automatic variety. The car is planned to weigh about 2500 pounds and has a 0-60 time in the range of 6 seconds – further adding to the fun-to-drive factor.
Gotta say, it’s pretty easy on the eyes, too. Available in spring 2012 for a surprisingly reasonable 35 000$.
