People are so hung up on the price of this thing when no one has actually driven one. What's even better, is people that work in the industry and have driven the most impressive cars in the world are saying it's one of the most impressive cars they've driven and a bunch of people online are saying, "It's not worth it". Really?

I had the chance to sit in one the other day and I will say it was one of the most impressive cars I've sat it. It reminded me of a Porsche 911. It feels like the thing is just was fitted around me. It really was impressive.

This FR-S/BRZ argument against cars like the Mustang V6 and Genesis Coupe is funny as well. HP alone does not tell you how fast a car is. I have a Mustang GT, Genesis Coupe, and an STI at the dealership I work at. The STI is the quickest of the three and has significantly less power than the Mustang. Gearing plays a big part. Also take into consideration that it's much easier to add HP than shave weight. Try knocking lbs off the GC or even adding HP. They are not easy to tune and very few people do it on them. I was thinking about buying one and it just didn't seem tuner friendly. So look at the numbers. I would still take the BRZ, and I really love the STI.

Mustang V6 - 3447lbs, 305 HP, 11.30 HP/Weight Ratio
Genesis Coupe 2.0T - 3362-3492lbs, 274 HP, 12.27 HP/Weight Ratio
Genesis Coupe V6 - 3433-3563lbs, 348 HP, 9.86 HP/Weight Ratio
Subaru WRX - 3225lbs, 265 HP, 12.16 HP/Weight Ratio
Subaru STI - 3250lbs, 305 HP, 10.65 HP/Weight Ratio
Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ - 2606-2762, 200 HP, 13.03 HP/Weight Ratio
