So there's good news and bad. First with the good: Subaru's BRZ (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/brz/) configurator has gone live (http://www.subaru.com/vehicles/brz/build.html?s_kpi=hero_image). As we've already reported, the base model starts from $25,495 (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/05/2013-subaru-brz-priced-from-25-495-w-poll/) including destination. Now with the bad: We hope you have fun with the configurator, Scooby fans, because that may be all you'll have for quite some time. According to FT-86Club, demand for the rear-drive-sports-car-for-the-everyman (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/03/26/2013-subaru-brz-first-drive-review-video/) has been so high that Japanese market deliveries have been delayed until January 2013.

While the report says it's "unclear" whether this will affect the U.S.-market BRZ or its Scion FR-S (http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/) twin, with demand reportedly four times higher than Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/) parent Fuji Heavy Industries forecast, it's a good bet that neither brand's dealers will have a surfeit of cars.Strong early demand pushes JDM BRZ deliveries into 2013 (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/13/strong-early-demand-pushes-jdm-brz-deliveries-into-2013/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Fri, 13 Apr 2012 18:15:00 EST.
