Subaru Denies Rumors About the BRZ's Demise

Subaru is denying rumors that the BRZ will not be around for a second-generation.


Last month there were rumors that the Subaru BRZ would only be around for one generation due to the growing relationship between BMW and Toyota. According to remarks from Toyota’s chief engineer, Australia’s Drive reported that Subaru may not be involved in the creation of the next generation coupe.
Subaru is now denying those reports and has confirmed that Subaru and Toyota will work together on the next-generation Toyota GT86, Scion FR-s and Subaru BRZ. Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, president of Subaru’s parent, Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. recently stated to Automotive News about the rumor, “If I were to be told that, I’d pass out. It’s not going to be just one generation.”
