    BRZ is low, is that the only NON AWD in the lineup?

    That's impressive. I don't see the brz having a much longer life.

    Poor brz is gonna die with those kinds of numbers IMO. They are just priced wayyy to high.

    Edit: Granted a refresh is coming but it's nothing special. Their resale isn't as great as most other subies either from what I've seen.

    With 50 more HP,the BRZ would double their sales.

    That thing would be wild with more power. Another 50 may make it too much fun to pass up.

    It doesn't help that Subaru never markets the BRZ. I'm pretty sure I've never seen/heard any acknowledgement of its existence on TV, radio, etc. The dealers around me have maybe one stashed away somewhere in a place too obscure for the average person to see or care about.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Kind of sad the BRZ doesn't get the love the tuning industry knows it deserves, but I agree with you on the price point. Its sales are lacking so badly because of everything else that you can get in that price range. 26-30k bracket is a big market to be in with such little horsepower, and most people already have one that are going to buy one. IMO they would need to drastically update the power and put out a turbo varient because right now it just can't compete where its at in the market segment. A power boost with minimal (1k at most) price increase would help the sales out tremendously. Or keep it the way it is and lower the price of it to around 20k or so. That's right around where it should be in my opinion anyways.

    I agree. I test drove a BRZ when they first came out. Although cool looking and somewhat perky and fun to drive, it left a lot to be desired on the power side of things. The wrx and sti are much more fun to drive still. Most people would spend that kind of money on something more performance oriented like the wrx/sti. I know I would, and did.

    Unfortunately like everyone else said, if they don't either drop the price a decent amount or add forced induction from the factory, this car will not be around much longer.
