Quote :
Subaru engineers quietly concede there's more power to come from the boxer four, though they won't confirm whether a turbo is in the works.

The BRZ rewards neatness: Get it right and we bet you can hang with the more-powerful AWD WRX through the twisties.

200HP flat four I would have to guess is a small turbo, but if it's 200HP and NA, the compression must be off the charts.

I thought about getting one till I heard it wasn't going to be turbo. Might just get an evo instead.

Going to have to be two engine models if 200HP NA, boosted one will be lower compression to start.

I like the looks of it. Just not sure of the market for the car. It does have one thing going for it.....it only weighs 2500lbs. But this looks to be marketed as a performance car and they only gave it 200hp (for now)?

Subaru's bread and butter is with the AWD performance car IMO. The BRZ is cool but if it was introduced at the same time and the 370z I think alot of people would go that direction.

Honestly, if I were in the market I would pick up an STi before the BRZ unless they throw alot of HP at it when it goes turbo.

They are going for the drift crowd. The Toyota version is looking to bring back the old Corolla AE86.

200hp rated at the engine isnt that hard to do, honda has been doing it for years, but granted those are dohc engines.

car looks nice, but agreed, i'd hold out for a turbo model.

My guess is this car will be slightly faster than an Si due to its weight. I think Si's are 2700lbs.

I think ours is in the 2600-2750 rance with lighter hood, fenders, bumper and some other things we have done. I would say we have dropped 100lbs a least.
