Subaru and Toyota have not kept obscure about building the next generation of the BRZ and 86 twins. Recently, a source from Japan even makes it clearer on the future sport coupes.
The Japan Times reveals an astounding detail that the next generation will no longer use the current 2.0-litre boxer 4-cylinder but the 2.4-litre unit instead. Besides, the gravitational center is going to be lower.
There is no word on the mill. There may be forced induction owing to the fact that new Subaru Ascent is equipped with a 2.4-litre turbocharged powertrain which puts out 260 HP and 376 Nm of torque.
