Nope, but as long as they modify it so I can see my brake pads I'm good.

Not I,


I feel like the number was just pulled off the Ascent tune...which I think the FA24 turbo @ 260hp.

Maybe the rumor shaved off 5hp and added + just so it didn't look like a copy and paste from the Ascent spec sheet.

I don't care if the renderings are similar to the Supra. They look good, and would appear to not have any flagrantly fake air vents, which is key IMO.

Devil's advocate here: Engineering cost is at an all time high. There's huge financial benefits to utilizing a powertrain that has already been developed, tested, and certified. This is why I'm skeptical about them getting some one-off NA FA24 that everyone keeps talking about.

Disclosure: Part of this opinion is based off of years of experience in the automotive engineering world with both OEM's and suppliers, the other part of the opinion is based off of pure hope/dreams of grandeur of a factory turbocharged GT86.

To be fair the current FA20D is a one off as well.

That's true, but it must be noted that a lot has changed since 2013 in the engineering world. All I'm saying is that we should not underestimate how much value reusing engines from other platforms within the same company holds in the year 2020.

The current 86 is in partnership with Subaru, who produces the engines and cars on their old chassis. In light of this, will Toyota continue their partnership with Subaru? I don't know. If they do then will Subaru still produce the car or is it even possible? The rumor is that the 86 will move to Toyota's New Global Architecture (TNGA) because Subaru no longer has a RWD architecture. If it does move to TNGA then can Subaru build that chassis on their lines? Would a boxer engine even fit in that architecture? I don't know.

That has already been confirmed (see the front page of FT86club.com for reference to an article on it)

Ooooo. I was able to switch to FRS Forum then I was able to switch to All, but I couldn’t switch to All directly from BRZ Forum before—odd.

Regardless, big thread there. Lots of info to scan. I’ll maybe search through it later. I don’t think anything was confirmed yet. Just speculation from “fake news”.
