Turbocharged Subaru BRZ confirmed for production

The Japanese based automaker Subaru has recently announced that a turbocharged version of its latest sports car, the BRZ, will officially hit the production line.

After some rumors appeared which said that a hot version of the Subaru BRZ will be produced in the nearby future, the car manufacturer has just announced that a turbocharged variant of the sports car will be manufactured. Subaru says that the turbocharged BRZ will be offered in two versions, an STI and a non STI, where the top of the line version is expected to develop a total output of 300 horsepower. What we don’t understand is why Subaru is trying to offer three versions of the BRZ within 100 horsepower, but then again, we’ll probably be left in the shadows with this question.

As a reminder, the 2013 Subaru BRZ has been officially presented at the 42nd edition of the Tokyo Motor Show, being designed as a joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine which is identically tuned as the one found on the Toyota GT 86, developing a total output of 197 horsepower at 7.000 rpm and a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6.600 rpm. Power is being sent through the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission with a short stroke shift level. An optional six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifts is also available.

    Please cite a source for the article and proof that a turbo is coming to the Subaru BRZ. Otherwise, it's just spreading more rumor. Subaru did say they are going to turbocharge the 2.0FB. They have NOT, however, conveyed which car it is going in.

  2. rob says:

    Yeah i call B.S. untill i see a source.

  3. Alex Higgins says:

    In fact, didn't Subaru even say they were NOT going to be making a turbo'd version of this car any time soon? Need sources.

  4. Dude says:

    Bullshit

  5. Yea me says:

    197 hp… Really

  6. Rich Palais says:

    That would be GREAT if it is true! I read that they have no intention of producing a turbo version of the BRZ. I think that they absolutely SHOULD and it would be stupid of them not to. But I did read an artcile where it stated no way.
