Grip : GRIP November 2012
BRZ NEWS GRIP EXTRA BRZ ALLOCATION TO CUT WAIT SUBARU has managed to source extra production of its high-demand BRZ spor ts car in February and March next year. The extra allocation of 140 vehicles means customers due to receive cars from May onwards will achieve better than anticipated delivery dates, a great outcome for all involved. Nick Senior, Managing Di- rector, Subaru Australia, said: “We’re delighted that Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) has recognised the enor- mous demand for BRZ in Australia and allocated ad- ditional production.” BRZ has been a runaway success since its July launch, selling exclusively online. SUBARU’S fast-selling BRZ sports car has been voted the carsales People’s Choice Best Performance Car Under $100,000. BRZ won the award in conjunction with the Toyota 86 – both cars are made at Subaru’s Gunma factory near Tokyo. People’s Choice Awards give the online audience for the multiple carsales network of automotive websites the chance to choose the most popular vehicles across 13 key categories. The initial list of potential People’s Choice cars was carefully chosen by a team of automotive journalists and key contributors to motoring.com.au, carsales. com.au, CarPoint.com.au and redbook.com.au. The combined carsales team drives hundreds of new cars each year and choose what they believe are the best of the new car crop. In many cases the choices were based on multiple drives of several variants of each car in each category. motoring.com.au also had the opportunity, in a number of categories, to drive the best cars back-to-back. The categories also take account of Redbook data, including price, size, passenger capacity and other specific factors. Prior to FHI’s extra alloca- tion, the back orders were through to November 2013. However, from May next year, all BRZ customers can expect an improvement in their car’s estimated de- livery time. Subaru’s initial allocation of 201 cars to the end of 2012 sold-out after just three hours of going “live” on the web in July. Im- por tantly, demand for BRZ remains strong.
