Graysgarage shares with us this great video look at visualizations of the flow structure and aerodynamics of the first generation Toyota MR2, second generation Mazda RX7, fourth generation Toyota Supra, and brand new Scion FR-S (Toyota GT86, Subaru BRZ).

A great review pitting the FR-S/BRZ vs S2000, both on the street and the track, the best we have seen to date!

The second annual 86EXPO took place this past weekend in Virginia. Just as with the first 86EXPO, the format consisted of an auto-x and car show.

Check out the photos and videos from attendees inside!

For the 2015 BRZ, Subaru has given the BRZ an updated version of the iconic World Rally Blue color (same as on 2015 WRX/STI). The new color code is 07X (versus the older “02C” version), as seen in these photos.

The 07X World Rally Blue (WRB) color is tri-color/tri-level — containing a base coat, shading coat, and clear coat (compared to the 02C WRB which was just a base coat and clear coat).

Check out more comparison photos HERE.

This recent report cites the president of Subaru’s parent, Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. and claims that Subaru plans a second generation of the BRZ. The report also says that Fuji Heavy will work on the successor with Toyota, which means we’d be seeing another generation of both the Scion FR-S (86 / GT86) and the Subaru BRZ.

The Initial D series has just concluded, and there’s a nice little bonus at the end (spoiler alert, don’t click if you are still waiting to see the conclusion yourself!).

It’s that time again folks, following the first successful 86EXPO held last year in Las Vegas, this year’s 86EXPO 2014 (details) will take place on August 9th in… Virginia Beach, VA!

We thought we’d spread the love and give our east coast members a chance to gather for some festivities and of course, autocrossing.

We’ve got all the details for you to check out in THIS THREAD, so jump on through, and we hope to see caravans galore arriving to 86EXPO on August 9th!
