I bet if any model gets the roof in America it will be a BRZ STi.

Considering how thin the roof sheet metal is, I wonder what the weight savings would even be.

Minimal but it is all about street cred. "I got CF roof, yo!"

Yup. It would look good, though.

Lol, that Photoshop picture looks like they found the very guy who did the last facelift on the 7th Generation Toyota Celica.

This is stupid to say but....


Dealer told me that for MY2018/MY2019 FR-S, he was told at meeting (in late OCT):

"...the Scion FR-S will enter a new generation with more performance upgrades. I am 100% and i'll bet you 10% discount on car price it will. If I win, you purchase a new one (FR-S) with 10% discount on my part. If there is no new performance upgrades of at least 22hp, I will give you all 4 tires brand spanking new for free and 1yr oil changes on my dealership."


I shook on this.


I feel 80% sure he is right based on the evidence you guys have compiled.... well... the bits of evidence lol


...still my gut feeling tells me his words are true. I do hope its upgraded to 220hp and not +22 LOL

I think so too. But, not because of picture. I think turbo because of FA20DIT on WRX. If Subaru did it with their own DI, I think Toyota will do something similar, or else scratch out FA20 for a non flat engine of theirs.

I kinda want it to stay FA20 but with Subaru's DI for turbo!


Plus that [lame] rumor of a electric turbo.

The idea is to use a new intake manifold, a new ecu mapping and to change a bit the internals (e.g., use lighter pistons with less friction). The latter could provide an engine that revs higher and this can increase the max. output even more. Overall, I think they can approach the barrier of the 220hp which is a nice improvement! In fact, there is already a car with these changes. It is the latest GRMN prototype car. It has a maximum output of 219ps/7300 rpm.


Any rumors about using the FA20DIT engine don't make sense. They could take such a decision 4-5 years ago. Now it is too late to go into such direction. Not because of the turbo, but mainly because of the combination (2.0 Liter engine + turbo). A more appropriate candidate could be the FB16DIT engine which is 1.6 Liter, but this is a decision for the new model and not the revision/facelift model.
