Subaru BRZ turbo likely coming as 2014 model
A turbocharged Subaru BRZ has made sense from the very beginning, and now it looks like the more powerful two-door coupe will be getting a turbo for the 2014 model. We reported here back in May that Subaru has already developed the first supercharged version of the 2.0-liter FA-series four-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that is currently used in the BRZ, Scion FR-S and Toyota GT 86. The Japanese automaker has put the turbocharged powerplant into the recently updated Japanese-market Legacy sedan and Outback wagon.
Subaru is listening to their customers
A recent report from Automotive News is saying that the new turbo engine will also be used in the 2014 Subaru BRZ. This isn’t a surprise because from the very start, Subaru has been flooded with requests from media and customers for them to come out with a more powerful version of the popular two-door coupe. Global Subaru marketing manager Atoshi Atake, was recently quoted as saying, "We have already had many requests from interested customers regarding a faster version. Let me say this, we will certainly satisfy our customers. We are already working on a faster version."
