The Subaru BRZ STI is under development, according to some cryptic teaser images on Subaru’s Japanese STI website. 

The images show a BRZ displaying the iconic pink STI badge on the front grille, and a second logo on a chrome fin across the front wing vents.

Subaru has provided no further information on the BRZ STI, but Tetsuya Tada, programme chief previously told Autocar that supercharging was a possibility. However, he ruled out a turbocharged version due to packaging difficulties. Internet reports suggest his team is also investigating a KERS-type feature.

A raft of chassis modifications are also likely to be offered. A number of TRD-developed modifications are already available, and Subaru UK has already indicated it will offer approved upgrades through tuning company Pro-R.

Subaru is likely to tweak the BRZ’s styling, with a more aggressive bodykit and wing inspired by the original Subaru BRZ STI Concept, which was shown at the 2011 Los Angeles motor show.

I mean, there were a number of comments yesterday morning, and they all vanished since.

Sure it's not that nobody is interested?   We know that Subaru UK won't import it.

...someone at Autocar saw sense and finally implemented some sort of censorship to rid the comments section of the usual load of utter drivel.
