Toyota Chief Leaves Door Open For Turbo Subaru BRZ, Toyota 86

The current generation 2018 Subaru BRZ / Toyota 86 wonít get a turbo, but what about the next-generation model?





Fans have been asking for a turbocharged Subaru BRZ / Toyota 86 sports car since it first came out in 2013, but it hasnít happened. Thereís a number of reasons why Subaru and Toyota havenít put a turbo boxer under the hood of the first-generation sports coupe, and Toyota chief engineer speaking to Car Advice at the Geneva Motor Show tells them why.

Tetsuya Tada, chief engineer for the Toyota 86 and Supra told Car Advice, adding a turbo to the rear-drive coupe would change the coupe completely. He says, itís not because he doesnít like turbos, Tada says itís because, ďIf we come up with a turbo version of the 86 and boost up the power that would result in the necessity of changing the basic configuration completely, to come up with a car that I would be satisfied with.Ē
