OK, so with the new car coming, what do you think is the biggest area where Toyota needs to improve on the old car?
Maybe torque dip?
Maybe torque dip?
That would be a huge leap forward for the car if it's given any kind of hybrid system. I don't see Toyota and Subaru going that far with it.Honestly i think that there was a torque dip in old 86 cause they have to pass pollution tests for Europe and with the torque dip the car makes lower CO2 so i think that if they get a mild Hybrid system from Subaru or a full Hybrid system from Toyota there wont be that torque dip and there Will be more torque cause the Electric engine at low Speed/rpm increase a lot the torque, see the new Honda nsx to have proof and to see how It works
I believe that's an average for a car company's fleet of vehicles, not for each one. I think Toyota and Subaru will be in a good spot to deal with it.They are forced ti mate , european market Is Like 20/30% of the global Number , and there Is from 2018 a stupid rule for all Europe that says that you can't produce cars that have more thanx ~90 gram CO2 per km , gr86 Is 168grams per km , so they are forced to use Hybrid system , else they wont sell in Europe cause they are forced to pay 9k€ ( 8000$) extra that means there Will be and insane price , and else they could not get inside Town cause in urbanised places there are limited traffic zone where only Hybrid car and Electric shit can drive , rip pure thermic cars
That would be great if they did that but I have my doubts that it would happen. I'm expecting it to require premium once again.The FA20 engine in the current 86/BRZ sips premium fuel. With the current turbocharged FA24 using regular fuel, I hope the new engine in the 86/BRZ will only be required with regular grade fuel as well.
Do you think there's going to be rear wheel steering @pngrant54?If its going to be an N/A engine 2.4 the following. Aside from the torque dip elimination I would smooth out the engine as much as possible with upgraded internals,do a slightly lighter flywheel, really concentrate on intake and exhaust sound so the car sounds better than the current car.(example Fiat USA went through 20 exhausts on the 500 Abarth just to get the sound right!) They should be going for a Porsche 356 "outllaw" sound. The engine should feel zingy and quick to rev. As for gear box aim for throws similar to a Miata and Civic type R. Both of these things help with acceleration performance and make the car more engaging to drive. Suspension wise simply improve on whats there now. Later BRZ/86 had a better ride then the earlier cars. I think I would use real tires instead those Primacy ones for the Toyota Prius. If this car has better performance then dial back the oversteer characteristics just a tad. Oversteer is fun but not the fastest way around a track. I would not spend a huge amount upgrading the interior. if the engine is a a turbo much the same but obviously upraded brakes. In a way a turbo is the easy way out if they can engineer it to fit. making an NA engine into a sportscar engine is more challenging with the Subaru design.
