Subaru has provided a first glimpse of the 2021 BRZ with a teaser image that gives little away. The good news is that it does confirm that a next-generation model BRZ—and its Toyota 86 twin—will be revealed by the end of the year.
The photo shows the BRZ wearing new brake cooling ducts and the same ten-spoke, 18-inch wheels as the Toyota GR Yaris hot hatch. More stopping power would appear to be on the cards, then. Also expected is more motive power than the first BRZ/86 pairing.
The car will retain a Subaru flat-four boxer engine, but it’s believed to be a bigger 2.4-liter unit, offering 217 horsepower. The outgoing car produced 205 hp. A six-speed manual will continue to be offered, alongside a new automatic that’s tuned for sports car use.
We can’t wait to find out.
