    Why though? It could have used the 2.4L boxer motor from Subaru and make it better. 250 hp and something similar in torque would have been sweet and it wouldn't have been that much heavier. :(

    Check our the first comment, which is similar to yours. It’s a little too late in the prod cycle on an already sinking ship.

    If Toyota/BMW does what Toyota/Subaru did, it’ll suffer the same fate.

    Yeah, if those car site's had a clue. We would have had the Mazda rx 12 , GTR r45, 470Z and S 5000 by now.

    I think A70TTR already confirmed that the next 86 is dead due to interest in other projects.

    Interesting, I assumed it was dead. Well, that's a great thing if it's being developed.

    Subaru apparently said they're working on it, but Toyota gave a super vague answer saying, "the 86 has been in the Toyota family since 2013 and the plan is that it will continue to be a part of Toyota’s sports car lineup.”

    Not sure that really says much for the partnership or how things will turn out in the future, but hopefully we do get a 2nd gen.

    Toyota's response could be taken as we will keep selling it but it's not getting updated lol.

    ^^ Yeah, I agree with you.

    I feel like the comment from the Subaru representative in this article from earlier today reinforces that Subaru says they're committed but they didn't comment on the Toyota partnership just as Toyota was even more vague about it on their end.

    Maybe Subaru feels that they want to continue on with this model regardless of what Toyota does going forward.
