Meanwhile the jury's still out on whether Subaru will participate in the conversion as well. If it does, a Subaru BRZ
roadster stands an equal chance of making it to American showrooms - especially if it doesn't have to compete with a cheaper Scion version. The convertible GT-86/BRZ would be prime competition for the Mazda MX-5 Miata
, a model which has an unfortunate chic-car reputation despite its standing as one of the best-handling roadsters on the market. The Toyobaru roadster, however, could emerge as the image-conscious enthusiast's choice. We just hope we get the chance to get our hands on it, too.
