Subaru stops taking orders for BRZ, signaling halt of production

Subaru stops taking orders for BRZ, signaling halt of production
Autos
Subaru’s Japanese website late July ran a message stating the brand would stop accepting built-to-order requests, and that any new orders would be satisfied by the remaining stock in dealerships.

Both the Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GT86 are built in Japan at Subaru’s Gunma assembly plant, which means the GT86 will also be ending production. A host of special edition models unveiled in recent months had also teased us of the vehicle’s demise.

But don’t worry, the BRZ and its sibling won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. A new generation of the twins is set to be revealed shortly, and will likely feature a few things enthusiasts have been asking for — mainly, more power.

It’s rumoured the next-generation sports car will feature an FA24 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, an engine usually found in larger vehicles like the Legacy and Ascent. The engine makes 260 horsepower, which should silence those who were unsatisfied with the 200 horsepower originally offered in the coupe.

Toyota will be bringing its modular TNGA platform to the table, which is much more modern than the current platform the BRZ rides on, which dates back to 2012.

The next generation of the vehicle was set to be unveiled in the summer of 2020, but the global pandemic put an end to that. The new BRZ and GT86 will likely be unveiled at the end of 2020, with more information available then.
