It was recently reported that Subaru is looking into turbocharging its next BRZ to extract a total of 280-hp from the 2.0 liter boxer engine. New reports suggest that Toyota may be going down a different road and has developed a gasoline-electric hybrid system that will increase the Toyota GT 86’s output.

Check out the Top 10 things you need to know about the 2013 Scion FR-S.

According to AutoExpres, Toyota is already testing the hybrid system in Japan to create a more powerful GT 86 sports coupe.

“The biggest request I have had is for a turbo,” said GT 86 chief engineer Tada-san. “But I have been hesitant about increasing power and torque.”

It’s likely that they GT 86’s Scion sibling, the FR-S, will get the same system.

Sad part is that adding a hybrid system is likely to increase the weight and the price tag of the coupe.

    “The biggest request I have had is for a turbo,” said GT 86 chief
    engineer Tada-san. “But I have been hesitant about increasing power and
    torque.”

    WHY?!

  • Is this a joke? Supercharge that bitch for some nice low-end torque. Don’t add heavy batteries to a light-weight car!

    or add a supercharger

    or install a bigger engine
