I just bought the Hakone in December. Had I known that the Supra 2.0 was coming out, I would have waited. That being said, the Hakone looks great and is extremely enjoyable to drive!
Toyota announced that the Lexus GS will end production soon in August, and Subaru will produce the last 1st generation Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ in July, May for European markets. Last batches of the 86 and BRZ are already on the boats for some counties as we read this.
Update: We reached out to both Subaru and Toyota for a comment and this is what we got.
Subaru USA simply responded with “no comment at this time” but Subaru UK said that while they cannot comment about Japan, they can confirm that “European production for the BRZ has ended“.
In addition, a Toyota USA representative told us that orders for the 2020 86 model are “still open and will be through the end of production for this model year, which goes through the fall”.
This probably means that the production of the Toyobaru twins will be gradually brought to an end instead of outright stopping the lines at Subaru’s Gunma factory in Japan.
