The Japanese firms Toyota and Subaru are already preparing the new generation of their 2022 Toyota GT86 and 2022 BRZ models that, in Toyota’s words, will be a ‘baby Supra’. It also plans to change its name and its presentation is expected in summer 2021.
What things can change in just a few years. At the beginning of the 21st century, Toyota was a brand with a catalog that highlighted the total absence of sports cars. Something inexplicable for the first world manufacturer to have sports such as the MR2, the AE86 Trueno or the Supra himself.
But since 2012, things changed their course with the arrival of the Toyota GT86, a vehicle that shared development with Subaru and that in this case receives the name of BRZ. This was followed by the Toyota GR Supra and, more recently, the Toyota GR Yaris .
And what about the second generation GT86? The first lines began to appear months ago. It promises, and a lot. The first thing is that Toyota is going to change the name of the Toyota GT86. At first, everything pointed to the fact that the new sports cars of the firm carry the letters GR, it would be called Toyota GR86.
However, the leaks of some records show that Toyota has registered the name BZ, an acronym very similar to BRZ, perhaps with visas for both models to share nomenclature. Be that as it may, the Japanese sports car will once again share a platform with the Subaru, and not only that, but it will once again be practically a copy of the first. Good news twice.

About the new 2022 Toyota GT86, the brand itself has already said that it will be a ‘baby Supra’, and therefore a more than interesting option for sports car lovers who cannot afford the cost of it.

Although they will share a platform, it will be a new invoice and everything indicates that Toyota will be in charge of its development, with the use of its TNGA architecture, due to its adaptability for rear-wheel drive, something that no Subaru platform offers.
