Although the idea that Toyoburu would engineer a smaller engine, get it through all the associated EPA/DOT regulations just to put it in a low-production hybrid version of the FR-S that would cost $30k+ and make only 40mpg is pretty naive.

The 2.0 NA is always going to be the cheaper to buy and cost less over the lifetime of the vehicle for 90% of people. Hybrid in this car would be for tree-humping idiots that don't understand math or science.
