From Templins interview:

Car & Driver: Why don’t you use turbochargers on the F cars?

Mark Templin: [F program chief engineer Yukihiko] Yaguchi is a big fan of naturally aspirated engines because of the visceral effect that you get, the sound of it, and the way that it feels. That being said, it doesn’t mean we’ll never have a turbocharged F product, but if we do, it will probably be a big engine that still gives you all of those attributes that he wants. He really feels that it’s important to have the sound quality that you get out of those big engines.

I prefer the SuperCharger!!! 70% of the drive is on the streets. I'll rather have that boost from the Lower RPMs!!!
Yup, can't really beat that when it comes to power delivery also when considering where most owners will be driving these.
Even better when you consider how it will improve performance on the track, coming out of those turns :D

Yeah that's very true. I'd rather a supercharger too but i'll take the turbo if I didn't have another options. Any boost is good boost! :)

That is very true... My dad had a friend that worked at the airport and every now and then he would give him a small bottle of jet fuel to pour in the gas tank.

That 1984 Ford Ranger was burning rubber for about a week. LOL

True Story...

thats funny though, supercharging allows them to keep the same NA feelings, I wonder if it was the complexity that had been prohibitive?
