The BRZ only weighs around 2800 lbs right? That's really light and it wouldn't take much additional HP to make it competitive with some much faster cars.
    How about an LS2

I really liked my GTOs, but their suspension was really soft (made for comfortable cruising) which caused wheel hop issues leaving the line and a lot of body roll taking turns fast. The stock tires were also too skinny for a 3700 lb car, and to fit wider tires you had to roll the fenders.
    The Camaro can easily fit 315 or 325 series tires in the rear without modification. That's a huge plus. The Camaro also has a much better suspension setup for racing.

    And I'm suprised that LS2 could fit in the BRZ. I wonder if he has any track times for the car?

    I have to say when I owned an FR-S the engine bay looked super empty. The chassis has a very large and flat engine bay for a car it's size.

    I see a pretty bright future for these cars. They remind me of the Celica from years ago. When the Toyota Celica first came out it was different from anything else on the road. The Turbo Celica Supra is still one of the most sought out cars around.

    As soon as they put the turbo engine in the FR-S and BRZ , they're going to be a pretty exciting cars (not that they're not already). The turbo motor will just be icing on the cake.

    You were pretty bad axx if you owned one of these back in the early 90s.

    ……. I would have looked very hard at them this year, when I bought a car.
    Agreed, was so excited when I saw one at the Atlanta car show years ago. Waited to get the first / second year production bugs out and fixed. And then the baby came and just wasn't willing to fight with a 2 door car to get a baby seat in and out. Plus rear wheel isn't the best in the snow. Sure, John Cusack did it, but I wasn't sure I could pull it off. Sidenote, one of my first dream cars I remember.
