Production of the current Subaru BRZ looks set to wrap up.

A memo posted to the brand’s Japanese website said that any new orders for the car could only be satisfied by remaining dealer stock, and heavily implied that production of the current model was ending.

A spokesperson for the brand's Australia division told CarAdvice they were currently "awaiting clarification from Subaru in Japan regarding production." This story will be updated when further information becomes available.

The BRZ and nearly-identical Toyota 86 both come out of Subaru's Gunma factory in Japan, and, it's probable that the current 86 will similarly be discontinued.

The current 2.0 litre boxer engine is likely to be replaced by Subaru’s 194kW turbocharged 2.4 litre FA24 unit currently offered in the Legacy, however Subaru Australia was unable to confirm this.

"Regarding next generation BRZ: the factory has yet to share any details, but given its success and appeal in the Australian market, we’re excited about its future prospects," CarAdvice was told.
