This ray of enthusiast light is one of 500 Series Yellow Special Edition models.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless sheetmetal.
For 2017, the BRZ features an updated nose with LED lighting. The tweaks are subtle, but do a lot to modernize the design and take it upmarket visually.
The BRZ's rear end gets sophisticated-looking whistle-shaped LED light fixtures and a new rear wing.
The BRZ's profile hasn't changed much, and is still marked out by tidy overhangs and a road-hugging stance.
The BRZ's interior needed more help than its exterior, and while still not particularly fashionable, materials have been meaningfully improved, as has center-stack tech.
Grippy buckets are standard, with the Series Yellow getting appropriately xanthous stitching and accents.
LED lights do a lot to update the front end, and the Series Yellow receives matching LED fog lights, too.
LEDs are known for producing a brighter, whiter cast, while using less energy and enjoying longer lifespans.
Performance Package-equipped models (as all Edition Yellow models are) feature 17-inch alloys that are a half-inch wider -- 7.5 inches -- than lesser models.
All Performance Pack models' black-painted alloy wheels needed to be slightly wider to clear the Brembo brakes and their larger rotors front and rear.
LEDs illuminate the new tail lamp fixtures, too.
