A New Subaru BRZ TS Could Be on the Way for 2024

a new subaru brz ts could be on the way for 2024

The Subaru BRZ got more power with its recent overhaul, but the automaker apparently isn’t stopping there. According to Redditors that attended the recent Subiefest, Subaru is gearing up for the release of a new BRZ tS model for 2024.

The car is not expected to be a limited edition like the previous tS and is rumored to get Hitachi dampers and Brembo brakes. It will also likely get Subaru’s EyeSight safety tech, which previous manual transmission versions couldn’t have.

Those changes should improve the car’s handling and ride but won’t boost its acceleration times. A video shared on YouTube shows the car running an autocross course at the event, though it’s unclear if any of the expected modifications are in place. That said, the car looks relatively stable in the corners, and the driver is easily able to rotate with the throttle, so the added power of the new model plus the (supposed) suspension upgrades look to be doing their job.

This story comes hot on the heels of another report related to the Subaru’s counterpart, the Toyota GR86. The automaker is rumored to be looking at the possibility of fitting the GR Corolla’s turbo-three to the car, which would boost output to 300 horsepower. Though Toyota and Subaru collaborated on the cars’ designs, Toyota is not expected to share the engine with its partner.

    Hopefully Subaru has re-calibrated their RTV application unit at the engine plant...

      Redapple2 - There have been several issues with BRZs being tracked that lose oil pressure due to excessive RTV sealant for the oil pan, applied during manufacture, that ends up chipping off and clogging the oil pickup tube screen starving the engine of lubrication. There are several articles and YouTube videos about it, some pretty horrifying.

    Interesting about the two possibly going with separate powertrains..... I have absolutely no idea what Subaru can possibly hope to bring to the table to compete with the GR I3, in such a niche car. I suppose the GR 86 could be positioned and made available only as an ultra niche, track/race "halo model," keeping the mainstream models from both brands joined at the engine. As great as the I3 is, in a rwd handling-at-sane-speeds focused car like the 86/BRZ, I'd personally prefer a normally aspirated engine. While free revving for a turbo, the I3 power comes on as a ton of bricks. In a rwd car with "normal" street rubber, that can't help but change the driving style in encourages, from the current balance-uber-alles, to a more point and shoot one. For competitive drifters and such, I bet the I3 will be a hit in these rwd coupes, though.

    Wow, at 2500 per year (US market), this is a pretty niche car already.
