Toyota’s Scion FR-S Turbo and Cabrio axed image

The Japanese based automaker Toyota has no more plans for putting the Turbo and the Cabrio versions of the GT86 into production anymore.

Toyota has already announced its plans to introduce a turbocharged version of the GT86 and also a convertible variant of the model but it seems that these two vehicles will not see daylight anymore because the company thinks they are “too expensive for their limited volumes”. This means that the over-seas Scion FR-S will not receive a turbocharged version or a convertible either, so fans of the car will have to settle for the current naturally aspirated solid roof variant.

Details on the subject remain unknown for the moment but as a quick reminder, the Toyota GT86 has been unveiled a couple of years ago. The model is powered by the same engine as the Subaru BRZ, the 2.0 liter four-cylinder boxer engine, developed by Subaru and fitted with the Toyota D-4S direct injection. The 200 horsepower produced at 7,000 rpm and the 205 Nm of torque are being sent to the rear-wheel drive through either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
