Subaru BRZ may be limited to Single Generation while BMW/Toyota cozy up

The BMW/Toyota cozying up may restrict the Subaru BRZ to just a single generation. The BMW/Toyota tie up in the making of mid-size Toyota Supra-esque sports and the strong collaboration on carbon-fiber expertise and hybrid technology indicates more good things to come.

When Drive of Australia asked the Toyota chief engineer, Tetsuya Tada whether his company would partner Subaru as it is developing the next generation 86. Tada is responsible for projects of GT86 and mid-size sports car. He responded saying that it is not decided yet, but confirmed the possibility of partnering BMW for both the sports model cars of Toyota.

If this happens, it is highly unlikely that Subaru will be out of the cooperation with Toyota and the BRZ would end up as a one vehicle wonder. Developing the next generation BRZ on its strength looks a remote possibility for Subaru and special editions and minor makeovers are definitely not going to help the sports coupe in its survival.

 

The Chief Engineer of Toyota further said that his engineering team is already into finding a different engine for the company’s next GT86 which also include inline engines which are likely to replace the Subaru contributed boxer four-cylinders. This further explains why there won’t be another Subaru BRZ from Toyota collaboration.
