That’s not what the car is meant to be. It’s meant to be a NA driver focused car. I’m glad it’s na. Everything is turbo these days. People who have driven this compare it to modern day s2000 which can only be a good thing.
They surely could have had both. An NA for those who can't afford it and a turbo for those who want performance.
Modern day is different. Even the civic type r is turbo and if there was a modern s2000 I'm sure it would be more powerful than the 86gt.
Oh yes the s2000 was 20% more powerful and came out 20 years ago. And it had the vtec 8000rpm+ factor that the 86gt completely lacks.
If the engine is the soul of the car, the 86gt is pretty much soulless.
