Flat 4 Powered 2+2: 2017 Subaru BRZ

The Subaru BRZ /Toyota 86 /Scion FR-S was the fruit of an arrangement between Subaru and Toyota to produce a world class 2+2 sports car for the masses.  It offered an interesting combination of Subaru flat-4 power and Toyota mechanical bits...but was assembled at Subaru's Gunma plant in Japan.  Sales in the US market for the combined BRZ/GT86/FR-S were low with something like 10,000 in used examples have been expensive, except for this next one that has a salvage title...but nobody else will know when you are carving up the apexes of your local track. Find this 2017 Subaru BRZ offered for $13,800 in San Jose, CA via craigslist.

  1. Lots of these for sale in Canada; Not cheap but not rare/overpriced either. Very popular car, see them just about every day in Toronto

    1. I agree, this doesn't stand out as a particularly great value for one of these cars. I guess the price might be low for a 2017 but get one a few years older and there seem to be some hovering in the $10K range. I do think that if prices keep going down these could easily become a miata type value.
