I can tell you one thing for sure is, WE are part of this update. WE helped Tada-san and other engineer update the 86.

How? All year around, not only Moto-san, but I've been contacting Tada-san to give feedback from 86/FR-S/BRZ owners for pros, cons & wishlist. He listen and taken some of advices.

& please, if you're friend with Tada-san in facebook, please wish him happy birthday. He goes so much to bring 86 in the world and try to make car enthuse world exciting.

Already 100,000 86/BRZ's on the road!

That's incredible when you think about it. Nissan only sold 251,410 240sx's from 1989-1998

So I'd say Scion / Toyota / Subaru are off to a pretty good start

So I guess the question now is whether or not this update will be the 2015 model or not...

Maybe it'll be a diesel and they'll give you 2 gallons free exhaust fluid.

Rotary turbo diesel water/meth injection hybrid.

Still 200hp.

Definitely interested to see what the updates are! They really need to make the HID lights standard across all of the Scions. Subaru's doing it, why don't they?

Golly gee! I hope it's a 1.3L diesel + hatchback, and they cut the wheelbase in half so I can parallel park on the Champs Elysees while cramming buttloads of french baguettes into the rear. Do it for that clown at Toyota Europe! If he still has his job that is.

Absolutely, Update, Upgrade...etc. But, forever staying at 200 HP. That is the main goal.
