2015 Subaru BRZ Turbo
Tracking rumors on the actual Scibaru sports activities car is really a full-time occupation, however one along with very little remuneration. Anyone is floating all manner of theories, given by a bolt-on supercharger by TRD (Toyota Racing Development) to some turbo FA engine swapped in coming from the Forester. Whilst each of those factory-blessed forced-induction schemes can be wishful thinking, a convertible design can indeed be launched included in the actual car’s mid-cycle freshening.
Toyota has admitted the FR-S and the clone were developed from the bottom as much as spawn droptop variants, even if the actual rear seats will certainly be sacrificed simultaneously. No harm, no foul, we say, as the planet can constantly use an additional engaging roadster. We received our first glimpse from the convertible’s path along with Toyota’s FT-86 Open up concept in this year’s Geneva auto show. Still, queries linger concerning how the actual ragtop can seem inside the U. S. Does it become a Scion or perhaps a Subaru, or each?
First off, the BRZ is a damn sexy car straight out of the box, but for a turbocharged model, Subaru will have to sweeten up that pot a little. We assume that the turbocharged BRZ will have to boast Subaru’s famous STI designation, much like the WRX STI.
With this STI package would come a set of 18-inch alloy wheels, a complete body kit, and a wing to keep the rear end in check at high speeds. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Subaru sneak in a little movement in the wing to increase or decrease downforce, as needed. Smoked headlights and taillights would also be a nice touch, giving the BRZ Turbo a more mysterious look, but Subaru is not big on customizing the lighting.
As we inch closer to the BRZ Turbo – if it bears the STI badge – we will continue to update the exterior with actual data from Subaru.
We would anticipate the BRZ Turbo coming with full leather interior, but not just plain old leather. Subaru will certainly add some contrasting stitching to the seats, as well as STI embroidery to remind you what’s under the hood, if it boasts the STI badge.
The BRZ Turbo will come standard with all of the gadgets and gizmos that the regular BRZ currently has, including: voice-activated GPS, 8-speaker HD Radio stereo system, Bluetooth, iPod control, keyless entry, etc. In addition to these standard features, you can anticipate the obligatory boost gauge, yaw control, and maybe even a turbo timer.
Just like with the exterior, we have not received any confirmation from Subaru, so we will add more information as it becomes available.
