The Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ may live to see a second generation, if a report by Japan Times is to be believed. According to the source, all-new versions of the 86 and BRZ are set to debut in 2021, which is a lot later than what was suggested in the past.

Among the revisions that are reportedly planned include a larger engine – 2.4 litres from 2.0 litres – although there’s no word if any form of forced induction will be applied. A popular request for the current-generation cars is the addition of a turbocharger, but Tetsuya Tada, the chief engineer for the 86 and Supra, has said doing so will upset the car’s balance and require a whole new platform.

The new car is also said to come with more technology, with the latter likely involving the Subaru EyeSight and Toyota Sense safety and driver assistance systems. Sharper handling will also be another point of improvement, and the Subaru Global Platform (used for the new Forester, XV and Impreza) could serve as a good starting point.

The 86 and BRZ have been around since 2011, and were recently given updates in 2016. The refreshed cars are already available in Malaysia as of July last year, with prices starting at RM257,502 (OTR without insurance) for the 86 and RM224,389 for the BRZ.
