At least before Honda brings back their S2000.
Then we'll see BRZ people contemplate selling their BRZ for an S2000 because it'll have more power.
But then we'll still see people complain about the fact that the BRZ still doesn't have enough power when it has enough given the weight and intended purpose which is NOT to enlarge the penis size of men who need something to supplement their lack of manliness.
