Well, now that it is reaching its fourth year in production, the car is preparing for some revamping. We don’t have photos of what it looks like (and I cannot show you if I did…) but here are some very strong hints of details of what the changes will contain for 2018.

A new front face (bumper and auxiliary lighting, as well as a new headlight assembly
The plan also includes definitely, new rear tail-lamp assembly. And yes, nice to know, though I do like the current tail too… And, for lots of folks, it’s already replaced with an aftermarket one as well, right?
A new center console and meter cluster will be part of the 2018 model too, not just colors but also a new shape.
A revised power steering module programming to allow sharper steering input at lower speeds while making it less responsive at high speeds over 200km/h to easy Autobahn speed long cruising. (Wait?! Autobahn Speeds with current engine power? Well I suppose it does reach 200km/h yes, but not too much higher than that… Still it is a nice move forward and interesting that they would consider such limited use condition and still perfect it to that situation as well.4. A revision will be made further, to make a little more adjustments to the EPS and VSC programming, again, mostly to address SPORT mode parameters to accommodate sportier driving. Like I said before, I don’t even use the VSC on a raceway so this isn’t a huge change for anyone seriously competing already.)
With the upgrade also will include couples of beefier lower arms and rods, as well as driveshafts that are tiny bit larger and beefier.So…. I guess you are still asking if there is a turbo or any more power added. They hint that there will be slightly more power, but not in any significantly different way it will deliver it, and changes are more to address things they didn’t achieve in the first editions. I’m expecting a modest increase, but more revisions to cure those tiny bits that needed some attention before.
Subaru USA though is hinting with an aggressively restyled BRZ at New York Auto show as we speak, so who knows… Maybe they’re hiding something much bigger in news?
A some elements have been addressed in the manual transmissions to allow more durability and resulting precision at the shift lever feel as well.

Don't sweat it dude. That car is pure fiction from the worst of the speculation blogs. It doesn't exist now nor will it in the future.

8 more hp with 20-30 more torque would be good. Damn these news click bait. XD

Not sure I like the new front end treatment on the 16s.

The car looks like it's eating itself.

Sounds perfectly plausible to me, honestly. Just tweaks to the platform....... more conservative than what Honda did with the AP2 (switch to 2.2L), but that was fairly conservative too. By going with new internals and intake manifold, they can address reliability a bit and get a slight bump in power/torque to say they addressed the "torque dip" that everyone hates. (probably)... so, they can say they aren't ignoring fans that way, despite the very small power increase.

and of course this will come with slightly changed cosmetics & more suspension tweaking. reminds me of AP1->AP2 big time, honestly.

Cool I am half way there then! Know where I can buy one left headlight? We will see what everybody has to say about that mod.
