So why doesn't Toyoduh get a turbo model as well? This car needs around 300hp, some awesome rubber and some nice big sti brakes to be absolute perfection.It's not a STI, just Tuned by STI, no turbo, pretty much all exterior and interior bling. It's not coming to the states. :notsure: Like it was stated before, Toyota doesn't want something like this competing with the Scion for all us hip kids.
that WOULD be awesome. BUT a big increase in the price tag would follow (and rightly so) and then people will bitch and moan. lol
You're missing a lot of why Toyota and Subaru teamed up, and what their agreements were there after.There may not be a turbo in a brz sti though...
Toyota is involved in the building of the brz/frs/86. So they must have a little say in what happens. Toyota's capital was put up with a subaru engineering platform and contracts up the wazu (sp?). I know there is at least a 4:1 frs brz production rate respectively. This means, to me and me alone, toyota leveraged subaru into a contract that is limiting to bolster scion/toyota sales in the sports dept. Subaru took the deal to help keep them from becoming a small boutique production car.
If what I think is true, the toyota will not allow Subaru to produce a brz sti that will far out perform the frs. So if this does become a production car I think toyota will require a limit to both power and production or require an frs equivalent. With the production limitations put on subaru I can't see them dumping the money into the brz that they dumped into the wrx.
Yes, I'm aware that they could just use a wrx/sti motor and tuning to produce then new brz sti, I just don't see it happening that way.
All of this is my opinion and thoughts about it though, I hope I am way wrong because an sti 2.5 turbo would be amazing in the brz. Not to mention a hood scoop for a TMIC would look epic!
Edit was to fix bed to brz, autocorrect...
Yes, but think about how fast you could get away from their bitching in a turbo BRZ!!!!that WOULD be awesome. BUT a big increase in the price tag would follow (and rightly so) and then people will bitch and moan. lol
