It's going to be a niche car, no matter what. Hopefully it sells enough to justify continued production; only time will tell. It'll never be a high volume car. 200hp is plenty because the car is tiny, but that's the problem. What keeps cars like this in a small niche is their size.
I've seen a lot of people trying to compare the BRZ/FR-S to the Mustang V6, or to the Genesis Coupe. That's just silly talk. Those cars are in an entirely different class, they're significantly larger. I suspect a lot of the commentators haven't actually seen a BRZ in person yet. It looks great in pictures, and it makes me really sorta want one. Especially with the reviews. But the first time I saw it in person I realized it probably wouldn't be a great choice for my daily driver. It'd be like buying a Miata. Not gonna happen except as a third car.
