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!

looking good! I have a manual FRS as well. It's a different joy to manually shift gears. As long as I don't need the cash for anything else, I'm keeping mine.

Subaru seemingly is ending 86 in Germany. who knows if it'll carry over to other regions and discussions about 86 on this forum suggest, future for 86 may not be positive. So, who knows, it may go up in value :)

I saw that. I guess the accident was neither the fault of the Outback or the 86. The 86 was at a stop sign, and not moving. Funny thing is, we have that exact same Outback in a different color as well!

A lightly tuned 86 lapping Tsukuba Circuit almost 4 seconds faster than a bone stock 86, and that's with the A/C turned on, no doubt it can go even faster with the A/C turned off, a more track focused suspension and wheel alignment setup and a set of stickier tyres like Yokohama A052s.

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.
