Subaru has called time on the BRZ coupe, and its Toyota 86 twin is set to follow suit. Both vehicles are made in the same Subaru factory, which is no longer producing cars to order.
According to Autocar, an announcement on the Japanese Subaru website says: “We have finished accepting orders for build-to-order manufacturing.” Dealers around the world still have stock, but buyers won’t be able to configure new cars. The same applies to Toyota.
The eight-year-old pair proved that there was demand for a lightweight, nimble sports car that put handling above horsepower. That said, the replacement expected to be launched in 2021 is rumored to pack a turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four with 255 hp.
In the meantime, you just might be able to pick yourself up a last-chance bargain on this affordable rear-drive sports car.
