    According to a new report from Automotive News, Subaru is working on a turbocharged version of the 2.0L boxer-four used in the BRZ.

    A source tells AN that this 2.0L will utilize a new a twin-scroll turbocharger and a new direct-injection system that will produce an estimated 280 HP and a excess of 250 lb-ft of torque.

    The turbocharged BRZ will arrive sometime in the 2014 model year.

    This is a 180-degree turn from earlier this year when Subaru global marketing manager Atoshi Atake said there would be no turbo BRZ due to space constraints of the BRZ's engine bay and wanting to keep turbocharging separate from the BRZ to the rest of the Subaru lineup.

    Anyone who believed there would be no Turbo was fooling themselves. They just did not want to take away from sales right now by saying yea, Next year you will get the real thing. Right now thanks for helping us pay for the R&D.
