The engine destined for use in the GR Corolla is Toyota’s turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol unit, codenamed G16E-GTS. It’s the world’s most powerful three-cylinder production engine, offering an output of 268bhp in the Japanese-delivered versions of the GR Yaris. However, it remains unclear whether the GR Corolla will boast the same performance.
Not sure if we will get it...some of you might not like it because it has a turbo lol.

Turbos and Toyota only exist with supra. And I am not talking 2020. You are more than welcome to put a kit together. Though, sadly, it will not conform with California emissions. It will be detuned to around 200.

Geo metro/Suzuki swift days. 1 liter monsters that got 50 mpg.

Sure hope Toyota brings this in, turbo or not. :love::love::love:
I had a few Japanese and European turbo cars since the 1980's, with 3 of the turbo cars used for autocross weekly for years. Also 3 of them stayed in my family over 10+ years before we upgraded them to newer or faster cars. None of them had any issue with the engine or the turbo, not one. We are talking about technology from the years of 1980/1990/2000. I know how hard I drove them, I would have no problem buying another turbo car.

Except for all the other Toyota models (albeit not sold in the US) that had turbos...
Yikes! No turbo, no aluminum hood, and no 250 bhp. Guess we got the Short straw. Oh well. Be nice to have turbo Corolla.

Might be crossed wires here, I assumed you were saying that Supras have been the only turbo-d Toyotas over the years, yet there have been many others (Chaser/Cresta/Mark2, Aristo, Soarer, Crown, Celica etc)

I only know of the coveted 1jz TT as being the motor to have here in the US. But, being that the new supra isn't even a Toyota, why bother?

Supra is an enthusiast wet dream on steroids. MKIII and MKIV.

Uh Celica had a turbo option IN THE STATES.

Not to mention all the turbo models available in Japan.

We never got the 1J. We had the 5M-GE's. Most people who swap, swap to 2JZ or 1.5JZs. Friend of mine has a 1.5JZ( 1 J block, 2 J head on his drift monster SC), but he had to import it. But to say a 'supra is an enthusiast dream" is BS. They were underpowered, and heavy. Not to mention how awful the MK3 handled. There have only been two good Supra's made. Supra Celica MK2, and Zupra MK5. (And I'm not a fan of BMW, but Toyota and BMW together made one hell of a car.) You can be all purist and what not, but hands down, the Supra should have won car of the year. But to many writers are stuck on sucking GM's nut.

2jz or 1jz are both good power plants. For me, it's the one to have as it is truly the purest Toyota sports coupe. It's red and mated to a 5 or 6 speed trans. Manual is more fun than a DCT any day of the week for me.

I would be very surprised if this ever hits the U.S. market. I wouldn't hold your breath.
