    I priced out building a first gen with a ls1 mill.. figured I could do it just under $8k and making about 430hp/450tq or so.

    That included buying the car and the engine/trans/management. I just cant really see myself in a miata as an owner. I love em.. and they're one of the most raced f/r platforms on the planet.... I just cant do it lol. So I'm going to find a 2nd gen rx7 and do it to that

    This is not pointing at anyone.

    Let's discuss the FRS/FT86/BRZ.

    This is the Cars/Prototypes forum, where we discuss new cars. We need to be done with all this discussion of all of these other cars. Stick to the BRZ

    OK, being curious and lacking a FRS to look at, I looked at the interior of a recent tC and I feel it is a step above my 02 Impreza. For the part that matters when one is sitting in the car, driving it, I think Toyota are ahead. The wheels are also fancier so I think we can expect good things there too (the photos I've seen so far though of the new car are not impressive WRT the wheels fitted, hopefully they'll fix that and fit some nice Enkeis or something).

    Pissing contest posts have been removed from the thread. Hopefully you guys have run out of words for the present. I'd like to keep this thread open, since people are interested in this model; take your attacks to a private format, or there will be blood (infractions) after this point.

    (off topic) I know this is gonna sound stupid, by me and my friend were actually designing a car with the same layout in cad, only difference was the engine options, i'm actually really happy it's being built, and that it looks some what like the designs my friend and i came up with. (on topic) Anyways back to the brz, i think it'll be a great car, i have a stock '04 wrx, and i'm guessing the brz will be putting out the same if not more whp because of less drivetrain loss, so i deffinetly think it's going to be a fun car.

    I didn't realize this thing has 2+2 seating. That almost makes it functional! I also didn't realize it has the Lexus transmission. That ought to make the shifting smooth (I hope). I sure hope they have a copy at the 2012 NAIAS so I can at least see it in person. I will definitely be taking this for a test drive!
