The Subaru BRZ sports car made its debut during the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show (December 3-11, 2011). The highly anticipated introduction in Tokyo followed architecture and concept car reveals at auto shows throughout the year, including the BRZ Concept – STI – at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
The U.S. debut of the BRZ is scheduled for Detroit’s North American International Auto Show in January.

Subaru of America, Inc. has installed a rain garden at its headquarters in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. It will help reduce water runoff, including nutrients and pollutants, into surrounding rivers and streams.
Rain gardens are shallow depressions in lawns and fields that collect rainwater, which then percolates down through layers of rock, gravel, or other drainage material. The gardens are landscaped with native plants, which helps beautify the area and minimize maintenance. Although rain gardens have become more common in new construction, the Subaru rain garden is among the first in New Jersey to be retrofitted.
Subaru worked in partnership with the Camden County Soil Conservation District and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Rutgers University to install the rain garden.
