Subaru has announced that it is no longer taking orders for its BRZ sports coupé, more than eight years after production began.
A message on the manufacturer's Japanese website reads: "We have finished accepting orders for build-to-order manufacturing of the models listed. Orders can only be accepted from stock at retailers." This means that the model can only be bought new while stocks last at dealerships,and buyers won't be able to specially configure their car.
No confirmation from Toyota but it's likely the GT86 will be stopping production too.
Toyota will sell the new sports car alongside the GR Supra as the GR86, while the name of the Subaru version - which can be expected to launch simultaneously - isn't yet known.
The duo will sit atop an all-new platform, replacing the Subaru-developed underpinnings of the BRZ and GT86. Sources suggest Toyota's TNGA architecture will be used, because it can be adapted to suit a rear-wheel-drive powertrain, unlike Subaru's current hardware.
