Subaru is allegedly plotting a special edition BRZ but don't get your hopes up too high as it won't feature turbocharging.

Our colleagues from Car & Driver have obtained information about an upcoming Subaru BRZ special edition that will be revealed later this year. While many are waiting for Subaru to finally turbocharge the BRZ, it seems the special edition will come only with cosmetic changes such as a front lip spoiler, STI badging and bespoke alloy wheels. The kit will also include a rear wing and different side skirts to complete the exterior look.

Don't expect to find the handling tweaks implemented in the Japan-exclusive BRZ tS which also comes with a few upgrades in the braking and suspension departments. For those who can't wait anymore for a factory turbo for the BRZ, there are many aftermarket specialist willing to apply forced induction on the 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter boxer engine of the BRZ which in naturally aspirated form delivers 200 HP (147 kW).
