    Post Toyota S-FR tech specs revealed (130 HP / 2160 lbs)

    We've been tipped on the S-FR technical specs and pricing target. Here are the important figures (translated from below):

    • 2NR-FKE engine (tuned version of the one used in Japan's Corolla, now with direct injection and revised ports)
    • 1.5L inline 4 cylinder dual-overhead cam (DOHC)
    • 130 PS / 15.1kgf.m (109.2 lb-ft torque)
    • Aisin 6 Speed Transmission only (no automatic)
    • Fuel consumption: 20.0km/l (47 mpg) (Japanese test cycle)
    • Regular gasoline (no premium needed)
    • Weight: 980kg (2160 lbs)
    • Suspension: Front struts / double wishbone rear
    • 3990 mm length, 1695 mm width, 1320 mm height, 2480 mm wheelbase
    • Estimated price (Japan) is $10k (USD equivalent) less than the current Miata
      • Note: 1.5L Miata is $20.8k including tax in Japan, S-FR is estimated to be $12.5k including tax


    Keep in mind that this is for the Japanese market S-FR. Other markets (such as U.S.) may or may not be powered by a different engine and may receive an automatic option.

    I dig them specs! That's amazing pricing if they hold to the same % in the US!

    130hp doesnt sound like much but 2160 pounds is not a lot to pull around. This thing is gonna be fun.

    Exactly what I thought when I saw it in Autoweek. There's pretty much no way it'll sticker for US$10k in the US, but we can hope for under $25k (or even under $20k as others have said). I hope they do bring it here. Can't wait!

Play into the rumors, offer coy remarks that don't confirm anything but elude to exciting specs/details. Unless of course the specs that were leaked were better than what we actually knew we could do...

    I do agree... but at the same time, which & what Toyota manager?

    Can't say much, but this project is under ZR department which is pretty high up of the Toyota/Lexus Racing/Gazoo Racing department. No ordinary Toyota manager gonna know tiniest info about this.

    & if you guys are wondering, Tada-san, who is Chief Engineer for FT-86 is the head of ZR department & no, hes not a Chief Engineer for this project, but he do over look this project (if that make sense).

    I think not.

    Also, "a well–informed Toyota manager"... No name given...

    Reading through the man's other post can be very entertaining actually. Unfortunately he is not the only one stating the specs are not official.

    No auto wow. Really aiming this one at the enthusiasts. So it's a Toyota engine after all. What does the 2NR-FKE rev up to?

    Probably not many have heard of the 2NR-FKE engine. It's the engine used in the current Corolla in Japan. It has more power in the S-FR by way of direct injection and revised port design.

    Features include Atkinson-to-Otto cycle capability, electric VVT-iE and intake port shape optimized for strong vertical tumble flow, near-hybrid maximum thermal efficiency of 38%

    Diggin' these specs, but still don't expect them to be the same in the US. We'll see though. I love the idea of it having a Toyota sourced engine!
