As a European citizen,If it wasn't a 2.4L engine i would agree.Europe has high taxes in a lot of countries,above 2000cc.Even though i do prefer the naturally aspirated engine and it's purpose,in Europe a smaller turbocharged engine(maybe 1800cc?) with low CO2 would be a better choice for sales numbers.

Yes, I see where you're stuck with 2.4L FA24 now.
I think this choice was more Subaru side decision who has much bigger stake in the USA/Canada region.

You see with Toyota, Honda, or Nissan it isn't the case where you see many 2.0L and smaller engine sizes for specifically the European and Japanese markets. This is the primary reason the A90 Supra comes in the 2.0L turbo, which really has no reason to exist in the USA.

I wonder if they could sell the 2nd gen with FA20.
Perhaps with minor changes to share more stuff with FA24.

It quite interesting to see the Gen2 has already been supercharged and turbocharged. I’m curious to find out how they were able to deal with the 13.5 static compression ratio of the new motor…

According to Toyota, it is 12.5 (same as previous gen). Though it seems to be confusing with Subaru at the time posting 13.5, I do believe this was a mistake that got spread around everywhere.

I was wondering about that… that would be good news if it stayed at 12.5, as there is lots of experience with boosting at that CR, especially where E85 is not available…

Some websites actually report that GR86 and BRZ have different CRs, while this is not impossible, it would be surprising… we shall see…

So they hand these things out to tuners to develop parts that will void the warranty. Be nice if they'd get them to the consumers first.

The European market where this would have the most impact is very tiny. The costs of having two engines just would not be justified.
Need to remember that contrary to popular belief the FA24 is not the same engine as the FA20. Many people seem to think they are just a bigger yet identical engine.

They did that with GEN1 as well. By the time of release there was a already growing market of available 3rd party stuff.

There's a 1.5L version of ND Miata, right?
As for FA20 vs FA24 compatibility — sure. However, there's also a difference between after-the-fact engine swap, and a factory-designed interchangeability. I can't imagine the 1st gen and 2nd gen bodies to be so dramatically different that they couldn't design how to support both FA20 and FA24.

Miata is a different car with different investments and paybacks. Once upon a time you could buy a Mopar and have a choice of 6 different powerplants but those days are gone. It just costs more to have different engines than it is worth unless you can cover it with volume.
The factory does not design for interchangeability. There are many more factors than if an engine will just fit into the body to consider. This is why we never saw a pile of WRX/STi engine swaps even though you would think a Subaru engine is a Subaru engine and they should all just drop in. They don't and even at the factory level it adds cost to have that ability. Do you want a $45,000 twin? Because that is how you end up with them

This is just a lot of talking.

And claiming the European market is too small for a smaller engine is ludicrous. As mentioned above, Mazda offers the 1.5 there and it does very well. Europe loves this kind of stuff. It’s the US that hates small engines and cars.

Unlike the whole "They should make a bunch of engines because they can easily and I know since I read the internet"?

How many Twins did they sell in Europe over the run? I didn't say that they couldn't but that it doesn't make economic sense to add the manufacturing costs for two engines.
