    "The slightly less expensive Subaru Impreza WRX almost plays in the same league as the 350Z, but it's less powerful, less refined, and is but a toad to the 350Z's princely looks"


    Thought you guys might get e kick out of this. On another note...I saw one up close and they are pretty nice. You can't like everything about a car....

    Those writers at Automobile magazine are hypocrits. Several months ago they were kissing the WRX's a$$. I say bring on the 350Z, by that time I'll have enough mods to smoke every one of them.

    I was considering one of these until i realized how unpractical it is. Cant wait to see a few ditched off the sides of the road when the snow comes. It has a similar profile to a porsche from the side, and it will definitely blow my doors off, but it wont carry my bike or extra people/luggage/etc...

    ..almost in the same leauge and less powerful... funny that its numbers ( i know, bench racing ) for 0-60 and 1/4mi are the same as what most mags got for the wrx. And as far as looks..I cant wait for my little "bug eyed bull dog" to grab a "princely" Z by the jugular show 'em who owns who.
