New rumor: 1.6-liter turbocharged engine one year after initial introduction

BC has published an article with the latest scoop on the FT-86 / BRZ. According to a summary that I was provided with, Toyota is planning to fit an 1.6-liter turbocharged engine one year after the initial introduction of the model. Now, what seems rather strange to me is the fact that BC claims that the turbocharged engine will be fitted in the G's / STi versions, while the "normal" versions will be powered by the naturally aspired 2.0-liter engine.


In any case, the article also mentions that the new turbo engine will be fitted in the new Subaru Impreza WRX STi as well, producing 270ps. BC also claims that the differences between the FT-86 and the BRZ (or whatever the official name will be) will be on the front and rear ends.

This is interesting news, but speculative at most IMO. At the moment, Toyota South Africa is planning to launch an Auris TRD with a 1.6 Supercharged engine! It will be at the Johannesburg International Motor Show in October. Sources from inside claim that this is a standard 1.6 1ZR-FAE motor (97kw/160Nm) with just a supercharged kit from TRD bolted on, but perhaps there is more to the story...............

I certainly do hope that Toyota/Subaru launches a new 1.6T engine - will hopefully be as monstorous as the old 4AGZE SC motors that were then turbocharged:happy0180:

I know about the new STI with the 1.6T (WRC spec!), but I wouldn't have thought Toyota would put it in the FT86. I sincerely hope they do!

What I don't want is to buy an NA version, only for a turbo version to come out a year later. That would suck big time.

Any chance of a translated version of that article?

A mid cycle turbo refresh a couple of years after initial launch could be doable to keep interest up until the next generation arrives. But tossing on a turbo a year after launch? That would gut their initial sales since people would simply wait a year to get the turbo model. Once more, I am skeptical since both Toyota and Subaru have claimed that they plan on keeping it NA and these japanese mags are notorious at spreading unsubstantiated rumors.

quite honestly, a 1.6L turbo is either going to be mild, with little to no lag, or wild, with shit-tons of lag... both of which i have no interest in. make no mistake 1.6L is not enough displacement to spool a "nice" sized turbo for the street. heck 2.0L is barely enough. this isnt WRC. 1.6L isnt going to get you too far in a production car with a warranty...

im going NA no matter what. hopefully TRD will offer a SC kit with an eaton tvs blower

^I've got my fingers crossed for the TRD FI option as well.

You all know that this is probably just rumormill right? Sedan, Turbo, really? Who told them this?

Considering the new engine is probably going to be DI, I don't think your fears are founded. For less displacement they would just use a smaller turbine. And EJ207 anyone?

What's the matter? It's still going to be turbo and more power than N/A in a light weight package . Plus this could help Subaru meet MPG rules in the US.

I agree as well that this is still a rumorville but definitely an even better reason to possible wait a couple years after the release.

Maybe the 1.6T ties into this...

i haven't read the article cuz the text is too small so i don't know for sure, but there is no speculation there of a sedan version. the 4 door and 5 door pics you see are renderings of future wrx's. the article is comparing the wrx to the subaru brz and talking about how they are gonna differentiate the 2 models. either way, i wouldn't believe BC. they should just rename the magazine BS.
