I said quite some time ago that every review you read will say that the car needs more HP. Get used to hearing that. I will get ready to see them sitting at the dealership until they address that problem.

^^^ most of the reviews I've read have been saying great things about this car....Its just like any other performance car thats about to come out....if the customers want more power just go with a 370z, genesis coupe or WRX...but you will pay more...but thats what you'll get cause your paying more..

as for the FRS and BRZ for the price...its perfect! yes a little more power would be wonderful but still its better then a TC or Si....and for that I CAN NOT WAIT!!!


and I came from a 08 Evo 10....

I would love to see initial reviews of the S2k from 13 years ago. The S200 only had 40 more hp over the BRZ and it cost 5k more 13 years ago!

I just wish it wasn't RWD, I can't live with a RWD in the Tri-State area.

The reviews wouldn't be nearly as positive if it had any other type of drivetrain. AWD is great under a number of conditions, but it has some serious drawbacks, which, so far, have severely hampered Subaru's ability to build a sportscar.

Unless you regularly drive in a steeply hilled part of the 'Tri-state' area, you'd probably be amazed just how well you can get around on modern snow tires with modern traction control... and how much fun it can be.

If your talking about the genesis 2.0T the BRZ has 10 less hp and is N/A and probably lighter

New 2.0T has 274hp, thus improving weight to power significantly.
