Spy shots (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/09/19/why-subaru-went-with-rear-wheel-drive-for-its-brz-coupe/) and see-through body treatments (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/03/01/geneva-2011-subarus-rwd-sports-car-getting-2-0-liter-non-turbo/) are all we have to go on when it comes to the upcoming Subaru BRZ (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/subaru+brz/). We've had enough of that, however, and it seems Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/) is finally ready to show us a bit more of what's in store for the future sports coupe. The automaker will unveil a concept version of the BRZ at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show (http://www.autoblog.com/la-auto-show/), and it will be wearing real sheetmetal this time.

The BRZ will make its official debut later on at the Tokyo Motor Show (http://www.autoblog.com/tokyo-motor-show/), where it will join its FT-86 (http://autoblog.com/tag/ft86)/FRS (http://autoblog.com/tag/frs) siblings. All three versions of the car will wear similar body panels with the exception of the face. Subaru will apply its own mug, while the Toyota and Scion versions will be identical minus the badging.

Subaru will be responsible for production of all three versions, and the sporty coupe will be built at the Japanese automaker's Gunma, Japan facility. There the cars will be fitted with 2.0-liter boxer motors, and paired with either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox.Subaru BRZ concept headed for Los Angeles as new details leak out (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/09/21/subaru-brz-concept-headed-for-los-angeles-as-new-details-leak-ou/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Wed, 21 Sep 2011 14:00:00 EST.
