The Subaru XT was a small coupe from the ’80s that offered all-wheel drive and a turbo engine, and now, Subaru is revisiting the designation on its 2012 BRZ XT Line Concept. While we would love to imagine a day with a turbocharged Subaru BRZ driven by all four wheels, we’ll have to wait until later to learn the true details of this car. The XT moniker has also been used more recently to denote the turbocharged models of the Subaru Forester, so there’s that, too.

For now, though, all we have to work on are pictures of the car, and from what we can tell, Subaru’s definitely injecting more attitude into the much-loved rear-drive coupe. Visual changes include carbon fiber (or at least a carbon fiber look) on the roof panel, decklid spoiler and mirror caps, while the blacked-out 11-spoke wheels expose red-painted calipers at all four corners. XT Line Concept badges adorn the front fascia, fender vents and the C-pillars.

Inside this mysterious concept, the BRZ gets some bright red leather seats with embossed XT logos and some added carbon fiber trim on the gauge cluster brow and door panels.

Honestly, the XT Line Concept looks more appropriate for SEMA rather than today’s Paris Motor Show reveal, but hopefully Subaru will release a press release with additional information later. Until then, enjoy the live images.

What do you think? Not happy because it’s missing turbo or supercharger? Happy with cool red leather interior and other carbon fiber gizmos? My feedback on this is, is okay. I’m pretty sure there are people that want this car for “luxury” and not just for “sports car” idea. Having all different types and style of 86/BRZ is okay in my book. Subaru & Toyota, please bring more stuff out for this car.
