Subaru Announces 2016 Series.HyperBlue Limited Edition for WRX STI, BRZ
Last year, Subaru released the 2015 Series.HyperBlue limited edition package for the Subaru BRZ. It was met with great success, so Subaru has revived the package as the 2016 Series.HyperBlue limited edition, but not just for the BRZ. Subaru will be extending the package to the WRX STI as well. In total, Subaru plans to create 700 WRX STI Series.HyperBlue models here in the United States, and 500 BRZ editions—dream big, Subaru, because BRZ sales have been plummeting due to the success of its more popular models. Pricing for both models will be announced in the fall.
