Is Toyota Going To Ruin Its Sports Car With A Small Engine?

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Affordability and performance don’t usually go hand-in-hand. The Toyota GT86 (Scion FR-S) is one of the most enjoyable vehicles that enthusiasts can actually afford to own. However, Toyota realizes
that the Mazda MX-5 Miata is in a class of its own in the compact sports car
segment and is planning a competitor that will be smaller than the
FR-S but just as enjoyable. We’ve already know what the S-FR looks like thanks
to a concept at the Tokyo Motor Show, but the most important aspect of the sports
car was a mystery, until now.

According to a report by Motoring, the compact S-FR
Coupe is expected to get a turbocharged 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine from the
Scion iM hatchback that’s sold overseas. The motor will have direct fuel
injection and variable valve timing for maximum output while returning good
fuel economy. At the moment, performance is expected to be at 114 hp and 136 lb-ft of torque, which is
less than the rumored 130 hp. However, with an expected weight of less than 2,200 lbs., a smaller
engine may provide enthusiasts with the same thrilling ride as the FR-S. The Miata’s
2.0-liter four-cylinder engine makes 155 hp and weighs in at 2,332 lbs, which is more than the S-FR’s expected engine.
