I have no idea what Toyota's profit margins are on the Supra and 86, but I would bet they're significantly higher on a $50,000 car than a $30,000 one. Even if the profit percentages are similar for...

You are absolutely right. The 4 cylinder Supra now sets the absolute ceiling for the next generation BRZ/86. There is no way Toyota will let the next BRZ/86 threaten Supra sales. Like Porsche did...

I ended up buying a BRZ as a garagemate to my WRX.

MrBreeze and DarkPira7e, I actually find the BRZ to feel 'cheaper' than the WRX. I like both of them, but probably due to the lightness of...

Whatever the new BRZ/86 might be, I think it will be 3-4 years before we see it. That seems to be about how long it takes to develop a new model and introduce it, from any manufacturer. If Toyota and...

Thanks jflogerzi and Will_BRZ! I'm going to do just that.

I completely agree with you!

HKz, you are absolutely right. A turbo BRZ/86 would decimate Supra sakes, and make that car irrelevant. As much as we would love it, there’s no way Toyota will allow...

Is a header worthwhile on a 2019?

I've been mulling over what I might do to extract a little more power from the 2019 BRZ I just bought. I've been thinking about a couple of modest changes, keeping it NA, a UEL catted header (from...

OFT - need to manually load tune files?

I'd like to get OFT Stage 2 tune to go with a planned header (FT86 catted UEL) and exhaust (Perrin) upgrade on my car. OFT's website says their tunes are compatible with all 2019's. But when I've...

Unfortunately, I think you're absolutely right on the timing of a new BRZ/86. The simple reason is, it's just not that important of a car to Toyota.

Toyota is a gigantic, sclerotic behemoth of a...

Thank you! I plan to keep the car NA, and E85 is hard to find in my area so no flex-fuel either, so it sounds like the OFT will work for me.
