Subaru has announced some changes to the 2015 BRZ. Most obvious will be the addition of a painted shark fin antenna replacing the black nub.
Mechanically, the BRZ will get tweaks to the front suspension, new rear shock absorbers, and steering adjustments to improve handling and driveability (no performance upgrades yet, I guess it will be 2016 when the BRZ Turbo finally makes it to production). Carbon fiber dashboard accents and a new key fob round out the 2015 BRZ’s upgrades. The changes, which have been confirmed for the Japanese spec 2015 BRZ, should find their way onto U.S. cars either this year or next.
Since their chums (get it?) at Toyota are adding a shark fin antenna to the Scion FR-S and Toyota FT86, Subaru is following suit. Unlike luxury cars where the antenna pods just look tacked on, the shark fin antenna actually looks good on a sports car, kind of like the roof accoutrements the WRX STI and Mitsubishi Evo have that supposedly do something magical to the air flowing over the car and add a million horsepower.
