Considering the BRZ has 2+2 seating. I would go with the BRZ.

Just get in line behind Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld and that other guy. Unless you have something better to trade than a jet-powered squirrel suit.

Because I used to own an Acura TSX I still get e-mails from Acura. They e-mailed the commercial before it aired for some reason. It was a great commercial, I'm sure Jay Leno and Seinfeld will get one as a bonus once it's released lol.

But it's about time, the NSX was such a rare and beautiful car. The new concept is just jaw dropping. I'm sure it'll match the price tag of the old one, but well worth it. If I could just find $75,000.00 laying around for a down payment.

At least the BRZ comes balanced with 200HP and purpose-built handling. I would store it in the winter so that it wouldn't get banged up.
thats what my 99 2.5RS is for. I bought it outright so no payments. All I pay is gas and insurance. it doesn't get cheaper then that for a winter beater. I'd hate to bang it up but its made it through 3 winters of my ownership without so much as a scratch.

Sounds like a road trip in the works chano. we'll go to seattle and each buy one. epic road trip back to alaska eh

Seriously! I would HAVE to test drive one first, though. If I fell in love then it wouldn't take much for me to sell my WRX (it's like I'm always looking for an excuse anyways!). A two-BRZ road trip would be the most epic BRZ story ever!

It's looking like we'll have to get MY2014 BRZ. At least by then any kinks will have been addressed.

Get it, Phil!

Man, you don't have to go THAT far! I just wanna touch it... hahahahaha At least a ride-along would be nice. They're really expecting a 2nd quarter release. Is June too late for you? I'm betting on May arrivals for Conti.

Stupid IP address... I just linked to the person's post that links to the survey before the results attach themselves to an IP address.

For the lazy, I'll steal what's shown in the survey:

Watched this today. Pretty cool. It's the GT-86, the sister car to the BRZ of course. He seemed to like all of it's features and handling characteristics.
