Report: Subaru’s parental boss confirms second generation BRZ, negates past reports

Previously, Australia’s Drive.com claimed that the Subaru BRZ was to be the first and last model as contextual factors such as slow sales and Toyota’s recent pairing with BMW have cast a grim light on the the BRZ’s future.

But recently, AutomotiveNews spoke with Subaru’s parental president at Fuji Heavy Industries Lts., Yasuyuki Yoshinaga, who said that a second generation BRZ is in fact planned. Additionally, despite Toyota’s recent agreement with BMW, Subaru and Toyota will still continue to work together on the next generation model since Subaru isn’t exactly able to produce the car themselves, all by their lonesome.

Yoshinaga responded directly to Drive’s article, which claimed that the BRZ will only last one generation.

“If I were to be told that, I’d pass out,” Yoshinaga told AN. “It’s not going to be just one generation.”
