Toyota and Subaru's GT-86 and BRZ duo represent a fantastic value for money when it comes to entry-level sports cars. However, with just over 205 horsepower these cars aren't exactly brimming with power, and many consumers seem to agree.
However, according to a new report from Autocar fans will be glad to hear that Subaru and Toyota are back at it again, designing the next generation of the 86/BRZ platform, this time, however, with more power.
Reportedly the new cars will be thrusted along via Subaru's flat-4 engine. However, unlike the previous generation's naturally aspirated 2.0-liter motor, the new generation will feature the automaker's turbocharged 2.4-liter engine, one which can be found in the Legacy, Outback and Ascent models.
In its current applications the turbocharged Subaru engine produces a pretty decent 260 HP and 277 lb-ft of torque, however, it is unknown if Subaru will try and increase those power figures for the new BRZ. Autocar go onto say that as an added treat Toyota will name the GT-86's successor the GR-86 adding yet another car to Gazoo Racing’s lineup after the recently introduced GR Supra.
