These models can disappear altogether from production. At the moment, nothing has been confirmed, there are only “verified” rumors.

Now that the new generation of the Toyota Supra sports coupe is officially presented, some people are wondering about the future of another Japanese-made sports car – this is a model 86. According to new Japanese media reports, the automaker’s leadership may decide to stop the further production of the Toyota 86 sports coupe. His almost identical twin brother Subaru BRZ can disappear.

It is reported that this is supposedly verified information, and officially it will be confirmed next month.

That’s what the official representatives of Subaru say. It is reported that the second-generation sports coupe BRZ has already been previously approved for production, but the automaker is currently unable to agree on some details.

In addition, the article in the Japanese publication Nostalgic Car also mentions that Toyota and Subaru may terminate their partnership in the field of sports cars, although no details about this division are given. The companies have teamed up to develop the BRZ / 86 model, with the result that Subaru has provided a naturally aspirated engine, and Toyota has provided a 6-speed manual transmission. The car was released by both automakers in 2012, and to this day it remains in the same form.

In fact, for the time being, there are a lot of unanswered questions, but as soon as we become aware of something, we will immediately write about it.
