I wasn't really complaining, I did say it was a neat car that would probably outhandle an STI or WRX. But the comparison to a WRX doesn't work really well, since a stock WRX is quicker than much of its competition at around 5 sec to 60 and the BRZ will apparently not be. The estimate I saw was in the mid 6 sec range. If they make an STI version with more hp - that would be a fun ride.
I think its great that Toyota and Subaru are trying something new. That's always a good thing. And let's face it, Toyota probably called the shots. Subaru's annual budget is only a few percent of Toyota's.
