Toyota recently announced its intentions to collaborate with BMW in producing its next-generations of sports cars, and possibly ousting Subaru to the side.
The end-result would be that the Subaru BRZ, twin of the Toyota 86, would be no more. But, says Yauyuki Yoshinaga, president of Subaru parent company Fuji Heavy Industries, a second-generation BRZ will be launched and that the project will still be in partnership with Toyota.
“If I were to be told that, I'd pass out," Yoshinaga said of its Toyota-partnership being supposedly ended.
On the future of the BRZ Yoshinaga continued: "It's not going to be just one generation."
With both the 86 and BRZ experiencing dismal sales globally, the arrival of two all-new models for both cars in 2016 is expected to help boost sales figures substantially.
Currently there is no word yet on more powerful models, as we suspect this will further contribute to increased sales.
