Oh this is very exciting! I love the profile of the car!

In that first photo from Subaru, I hope that vent actually works and isn't there for show. Also, those taillights wrap around the side way more than I expected.

Awesome! I'm loving the vents behind the front wheels. Pretty aggressive!

I really like the looks from what we can see. Looks very good and looks to have enough of the old car but with a much needed refresh. Definitely excited to see what it fully looks like upon reveal.

I like that the BRZ is finally getting some spotlight instead of the 86. I really like that it has a more pointed front end than the first gen BRZ.

I'm really curious to see that rear spoiler better. It looks like the car swoops right up in the rear, but I wonder if it's just a small lip spoiler or a part of the trunk

Like stated above the lines on the car are beautiful, at least from what we can see.
Love the side profile and what we can see of the front end, the car looks very good and I'm glad they went with a lighter camo, makes seeing the lines easier.

Do you guys get the current BRZ?

And I haven't heard about timing. Last time I think Toyota debuted the car first, but Subaru seems to be taking the lead here.
I suspect they'll look almost identical regardless.

The wheels do look the same as the GR Yaris. However when I look at these photos the profile of this new BRZ is slightly different than the current one. I'm not just talking about the new front and rear ends. That's easy to see with the new headlights and grill and new tail lights. But looking at the profile some things stand out. The distance from the rear of the door to the rear wheel looks bigger than the current car. There is more overhang behind the rear wheel. There is more overhang in front of the front wheel. The door seems to be about the same length as the current car but now seems taller. The greenhouse is the same general shape but seems a little shallower. The rear deck behind the c pillar is longer and flatter. The gap between the edge of the front door and front wheel is a little shorter. overall this may indicate a slightly longer wheelbase with more emphasis towards increased rear room seating. The overall height might be about the same or slightly taller by an inch. With the longer deck, longer overhangs both front and rear we are looking at a longer car overall. My guess overall height 51 inches. Overall length 173 inches. Based on previous photos with that Mustang I would say width is up by about an inch or so. This looks to be a bigger car than the current BRZ. The front hood seems to sit higher but is more rounded than the current car while not sloping down as much as the current cur until you get past the front wheels. Dare I say in profile the front reminds me a little of a 944.

That's some crazy detailed analysis. time will tell I guess. I'm open to it being slightly bigger.... I just hope they keep the weight down.
