Toyota GT 86 Sedan is late due to Subaru?

Article by Christian A., on October 23, 2013

The partnership between Toyota and Subaru seems to be in peril, according to sources. While the GT 86 and BRZ were launched successfully, there’s now an ongoing dispute that may affect future joint projects. A source told Edmunds that Scion wants to develop a FR-S / GT 86 sedan but that "Subaru has been dragging its heels on it."

Reports indicate that Scion seeks to get this model to start selling in early 2016. It was also reported that Doug Murtha of Scion has confirmed that a new model will come for either the 2015 or 2016 model year.

Murtha didn’t reveal the name of this model. But according to the website, it will be a redesigned xB. Among the projects being considered are two five-door hatchbacks. It’s believed that the announcement on which one they will decide to offer to the U.S. market will be made next spring.
