No turbocharged 86 without new platform — Toyota engineer

Stop Trying To Make A Turbo Toyobaru Happen Top Exec Says

The engineer went on to suggest Toyota will let aftermarket companies lead the way as the automaker didn't have to get too involved in the tuning market with the 86.

"Unlike the GT86 co-developed with Subaru, with BMW we first decided on the concept of the auto that each company would like to develop separately", said Supra chief engineer Tetsuya Tada in an interview with Evo at the recent Geneva Motor Show.

"I believe that often times I answered that there won't be a turbo version, and there were some articles in the media that Mr Tada doesn't like a turbo", he said. "Just as with the 86, we have the same message with the new vehicle - we'd really like people to tune the auto themselves", Tada said.

The issue centers around weight and balance, which would be thrown off if the Toyota 86 simply added a turbocharger without shedding an equivalent number of pounds from other front-end systems.

"One characteristic of the 86 is that in terms of the front balance its slightly front loaded so it makes the handling more fast and agile".

"That means we have to come up with a completely new platform, so it's not about just changing or slight modification in the engine parts".

Such changes are out of the question for the current generation, though the argument does not preclude a turbocharged successor to the current model.

But while the current-generation 86 will likely remain naturally aspirated, overwhelming feedback to Tada about the need for more power may force Toyota's hand when it comes to creating the new 86 - if or when that happens, naturally.
