Subaru’s bosses are putting a stop onto rumors which were saying that the BRZ sports car will not be getting a second generation.
A couple of weeks ago, reports were saying that the Subaru BRZ will not get a replacement but it seems that the Japanese based automaker is now putting a stop to these rumors by announcing a second generation of the sports car. The announcement has been made through the voice of the Fuji Heavy Industries president, Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, who has recently spoken to the guys from Automotive News, in an interview.
According to our source, the Subaru BRZ will not be axed in a few years and it will live on in a new generation and it seems that the development of the model hasn’t been affected by Toyota’s partnership with BMW. A mid-cycle refresh will be made to both vehicles, the Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GT 86, sometimes next year, as the two models are expected to get some lightweight parts, a different exhaust system, a new intake system, updated final drive ratio and, probably, a bigger boxer engine under their hoods. More details on the next-gen Subaru BRZ are limited for the moment.
