    How tall is this guy? The BRZ looks like a 1/3 scale model next to him.

    I'm so sold on the BRZ but I have to look at a Subaru VX instead. Why did I have to start a family.

    Holy hell the BRZ is so damned generic, it looks like another Nissan-Hyundai-Toyota-clone POS.

    Their goal is to make sales, to appeal to as wide of a market as possible, they are restricted by emissions laws and government regulations. Despite these setbacks the good news is that you as a consumer have the power to modify this car or any generic car stamped out at factor into something that fits your personal definition of unique and exciting. It's up to you to buy a car with a base platform that you prefer whether it is FF FR, turbo, NA, whatever.
    Start with the best suited base and build off of it. The exciting thing about this car IMO is that it is an affordable base platform that appeals to a lot of car enthusiasts. Its FR layout and good balance and more aggressive looks are an exciting platform for a car lover to turn to the drawing board with and produce something they can enjoy fully.

    So, BRZ with some minor improvements in power should be pretty unbeatable.
    Make the world a radder place, grow a mullet.
    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.

    1.5 seconds a lap slower than the Mustang is a big difference and will take more than just minor improvements in power to overcome. For example it's close to the difference between a V6 Mustang and M3 around that track driven by Probst.

    Great point, this is something that a lot of people need to remember when thinking about cars. Start off with the best platform for your needs and then modify it to your preferences. Car manufacturers can't please everyone all the time.
    I like cars.

    I really want a BRZ now. From all the reviews and videos I've seen, it sounds like this car was really worth all the hype and the long delay. Seems like the only complaint so far is that it's slightly under powered but at that price point for an import sports car, you can't really expect too much more in that department.
