This account comes forth with the aboriginal full-body spy photos of the 2022 Subaru BRZ, apparent here. Like the first-generation car, the new one will be a collective adventure with Toyota, and appears to absorb the accommodation and allocation of the accepted BRZ/Toyota 86. The name of the Toyota alternative may change, though, as Autocar appear beforehand this year that the aggregation will rename the 86 to bigger fit with the GR Supra and GR Yaris.
