I admit, wanting a car that nobody makes is a "me" problem, it's why I drove my 2006 WRX wagon until 2019 instead of until the 5yr or 10yr ownership mark - nobody made a wagon that could replace it at either of those points, I got fed up with the time I had to invest to keep it on the road, so I dumped it in late 2019 & settled for a sedan as a stop-gap; coming real fast on it's intended window of replacement too, I'm past my "3yr minimum", 5yrs was the original plan, but I'm not seeing anything on the horizon right now, so I'll probably go past that too; it's a Lexus so I'm not worried, I'm just bored. I have very little influence over the industry, manufacturers decided to stop making wagons, all I can do is buy what is available, doesn't mean that a wagon is a bad car, just that they stopped making them.

Subaru isn't going to fix the FA24D, that is not on me, that is on Subaru; I'm not willing to give them ~30k for a car that has a poorly designed and assembled engine, 1/3rd or so of the cars value is under the hood. They won't sell me a car without an engine at a discount so I can stuff something good in it's place either.

The BRZ/86 are 228hp and 2,800lbs ~12.3lb/1hp
The Mustang GT is 486hp and 3,800lbs ~7.8lb/1hp

The only 4-seat 6mt RWD options on the market with a decent power:weight ratio are 1,000lbs heavier than a BRZ/86.

The option are "slow" or "heavy" (or six-figures for a 911)
