Default BRZ Likely to get turbo but not be called sti, AUTOBLOG 3/26

Unfortunately subaru somehow managed to tell us there will likely be a turbo while at the same time spawning more questions that actually answering. Jesus, confusing.


AUTOBLOG.COM 3/26

"I asked Masuda-san point-blank if indeed there will be an STI-style turbocharged BRZ by the time this generation reaches the middle of its life in two-and-a-half or three years. A number came out of his mouth that raised my eyebrows. "In future, there is the thought to have as much as 280 horsepower." Well, uh, gosh, that's even a bit more than I was gambling for. "And we are," he went on, "thinking very much about the possibility of a turbocharger." So, could we be digging on somewhere around 250 pound-feet of torque? The master would not confirm or deny, but he did say that such a model would probably not use the acronym STI."

Do you think they will really make us wait 2-3 years for technology thats already old?

People say THINK MIATA, well the miata is 300 lbs lighter, AND FASTER 0-60, 1/4 mile

Let's ignore all the other reviews that put the BRZ at mid 6s and focus on the ONLY review that put it over 7.

Don't be so transparent.

lol, don't be a tool jerk.

Actually I'm referring to the article that directly compares the 2 cars (might want to read before you speak) putting the mazda @6.3 and I believe thats with the hard top, brz@6.4

anyways tired of people trashing ppl for wanting more power, I don't have a problem with this model I just want feel a turbo should be available as well now considering it's old technology for subaru.

Just because its relatively old tech doesn't mean they need to slap a turbo on every car they make.

The BRZ was not meant to be a fast car, its a small nimble coupe.

The S2k never made more than a few hundred hp and made NO torque yet its one of the more desirable track cars.

things are looking up for this car.... very interesting to see how it all pans out. If a STI version / equivalent under a different name comes out with a turbo and upgraded brakes, I'd be very interested.

I've dominated s2000's on the track. They are highly sought after because they are nimble and oh yea, 10 grand.

Just when you thought subaru couldn't make it anymore confusing.

Report: BRZ STI Model Already in Works, Not Turbocharged

Posted by admin

Subaru’s Global marketing manager Atoshi Atake has given the best hint yet that the Subaru BRZ STI model is already in the works, saying to Autoexpress that “We have already had many requests from interested customers regarding a faster version. Let me say this – we will certainly satisfy our customers. We are already working on a faster version.”

However, the BRZ STI will not be turbocharged as some have speculated. It is likely to produce around 250bhp. “We can definitely develop the intake system,” Atake said. “There is certainly room for improvement there.” In addition, there is likely to be a freer-flowing exhaust and modifications to the engine’s variable valve control system, along with an even higher rev limit of around 7,500rpm.

250 hp from a NA 2.0 is awesome. hopefully the torque increases to 200 at least
