Report: Scion FR-S not getting turbo version, Subaru BRZ will most likely get one

Both Subaru and Scion have confirmed that the co-developed sports models, the BRZ and FR-S, respectively, will not be fitted with forced induction any time soon.

While the possibility remains for a turbocharged BRZ later on, the Scion FR-S may never roll off the line with a turbo in the U.S., even though it may become available in other markets where it is badged as the 86 or GT86.

Both the BRZ and the FR-S feature the same 2.0-liter inline four that produces 200-hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, but the turbo would take the $24,930 starting price near the $30,000 mark, and since there are no factory options available on the BRZ or the FR-S, the jump in price is a bit more outstanding.

Where most people interested in the average Scion aren’t looking for something with a $30,000 price tag, especially given the other options available at that price, the Subaru brand carries a reputation that differs from that of Scion, which is Toyota’s down-market brand.

It has also already been released that the STI variant for the BRZ will come more powerful, but still N/A, so it is still not likely Subaru will ever drop a turbo under the hood of the BRZ.
