2013 Subaru BRZ

So there's good news and bad. First with the good: Subaru's BRZ configurator has gone live. As we've already reported, the base model starts from $25,495 including destination. Now with the bad: We hope you have fun with the configurator, Scooby fans, because that may be all you'll have for quite some time. According to FT-86Club, demand for the rear-drive-sports-car-for-the-everyman has been so high that Japanese market deliveries have been delayed until January 2013.

While the report says it's "unclear" whether this will affect the U.S.-market BRZ or its Scion FR-S twin, with demand reportedly four times higher than Subaru parent Fuji Heavy Industries forecast, it's a good bet that neither brand's dealers will have a surfeit of cars.
