Senior employees at both Toyota and Subaru have dismissed rumours that the GT86 and BRZ compact sports cars face the axe.
Last week Japanese Nostalgic Car (citing another report from an upcoming tabloid story) reported that the rear-driven Toyota, along with its Subaru BRZ twin, would be cancelled due to the two companies having “deviated on their development policies”.
But since then there have been denials on both fronts.
Toyota Australia’s public affairs manager Brodie Bott has told GoAuto that there will indeed be a new-generation GT86. “We’ve seen it, it is coming,” he told the Australian website.
“When those reports blew up, we had a few chats internally and I can tell you right now, the car is coming,” Bott said.
