The current generation of the Subaru BRZ will not be receiving a successor as the model in question will die in the same form.
The Subaru BRZ will not be receiving a new generation. The sports car is set to be discontinued in a few years. One of the reasons is that Toyota has a 20 percent stake in the Subaru’s parent company, Fuji Heavy Industries, and the larger carmaker will focus on the development of a new GT 86. The announcement hasn’t been made official and it is part of a report published by the Australians from drive.com.au.
As a small reminder, the Subaru BRZ is basically the same car as the Toyota GT 86 or the Scion FR-S. It has been introduced back in 2012 and it is produced in Ota, Gunma, Japan. It has a two-door coupe sports compact body style, coming with a front engine and a rear-wheel drive layout. It is using a 2.0 liter boxer engine which is producing a total output of 200 HP (149 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque, available at 6,000 rpm. The unit is connected to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes 7.6 seconds and top speed stands at 233 km/h (145 mph).
