And that partnership with BMW was long ago discussed while Toyobaru was in the works so its not really shocking news per se. Expect BMW to release weaker counterpart to their M series (just like subaru did not outpower their WRX lineup). Likewise expect car to be scion just like they did with FT-86 and toyota in europe (just like they did with GT-86).
It is very difficult to create a sports car for today's market. Heck even Evo is almost cancelled.
I personally would want to own a supra but it has to be a thoroughbred just like MKIV was. It should not be a lexus nor a scion... it needs to be a toyota.
I owned 6 celicas and 1 tacoma. Parents owned a camry and a tacoma. Would be nice to have fun toy again.
The reason why you don't see many BRZ is because Subaru is limited to the amount they can sell. I've seen quite a few FR-S over here.
Also this would work in with BMW's Z line
The reason why the Evo is close to being canned is because Mitsu isn't doing so well sales wise.
