More units of the Subaru BRZ will be offered in the United States in order to keep up with the high demand.
After initially requesting a total of 6,000 units of the Subaru BRZ annually, the Japanese based automaker has managed to sell 3,120 through October only and now, in order to keep up with the high demand, a total of 2,000 units of the sports car will be delivered there over the next four months. The demand has surpassed the automaker’s expectations of approximately 500 units a month.
“We are selling all the BRZs we can get. We have been sold out since the car was introduced”, said COO Tom Doll.
As a quick reminder, the Subaru BRZ is available in two trim levels, the SE and the SE Lux, and the base version is getting standard features like the push-button start, dual-zone air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, electrically folding mirrors, leather gearlever, leather handbrake, ESP, iPod connectivity, six-speaker steror system, torque-sensing limited slip differential and 17-inch alloy wheels. Power to the Subaru BRZ is provided by the same engine found on the Toyota GT 86 and on the Scion FR-S, the Subaru developed 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, which is producing a total output of 197 BHP, sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission in standard or through a six-speed automatic, available as an option.
