Since the day Subaru BRZ was introduced along with its Toyota twin, we’ve all been nagging about the car’s lack of power. These days 200bhp is not enough to power a washing machine, let alone a sportscar. Looks like Subaru’s been listening, as their marketing boss recently admitted in an interview they’re already working on a more powerful, faster version.

The thing is, they are very slow in their path. We were expecting a turbocharged BRZ, but that’s not what we’ll be getting, at least no in the near future. What Subaru is proposing is a tweaked STI version with some visual mods, sport suspension, bigger wheels and a light engine tune.

They’re talking about stuff like modified intake and exhaust system, and remapped ECU, which at best will give the car 250bhp. While that’s better the current 200, and will certainly improve its 6.4 seconds 0 to 60 time, a car with such a delicious recipe needs at least 300bhp. They can take on the mighty Genesis Coupe with this thing.

The turbo is apparently saved for a high-end WRX STI version.
