While limited dealer and demo supply may remain on some showroom floors, both manufacturers suggest their respective national dealer networks have cleared out stock and are awaiting next-generation replacements.
A spokesperson for Subaru Australia said: “The last BRZs left [our] stock over the last month.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Toyota Australia was unsure how many cars were unsold at the retail level, but noted: “Customers should contact their local dealer for the most up-to-date information on stock availability.”
CarAdvice has contacted several major dealers for both manufacturers, all of which confirmed supply had completely run dry.
The revamped 2022 Subaru BRZ (shown above in blue, and below in silver) is expected to arrive in Australia during the fourth quarter of this year (October to December inclusive).
The vehicle will launch in Japan sometime between September and November 2021, with online speculation suggesting an Australian roll-out in the first half of 2022 is likely – however, this timeline has not been verified by Toyota.
The next-generation car sees a 173kW/250Nm 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated 'boxer' four-cylinder petrol engine replace the outgoing 152kW/212Nm 2.0-litre engine of the same layout.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, allowing the 0-100km/h sprint to be completed in a claimed 6.3 seconds.
