Yes, we know, this engine has high compression and you can't run much boost. Seriously though, I would really expect at a very minimum 300HP, in fact that's what most people were expecting for the base model initial launch.
Props to the people that wanted to make a kit for it, but I would have trouble justifying the type of money it takes to get a BRZ and slap a turbo on it versus buying a RWD fun car that is already pushing adaquate HP.

Am I the only one that while on a test drive thought it drove like a rental car?
Since you're so hung up on horsepower, why aren't you driving a camaro SS?

There's a lot more to this car than just HP. If the car "drove like a rental car", you're too dense to realize that, or to feel it on the test drive. I took an FR-S out on a half hour test drive and it was one of the funnest cars I've driven in a long time.
