    Not sure, but if that's true then wow! These platforms get tuned quick!!! I wonder if they changed the internals of the motor to handle the huge power jump, or if it's still on stock internals.

    Current rumor is the BRZ STi will be non-turbo, possibly because of some agreement with Toyota.

    Regardless, I had a chance to drive a modified tire/suspension BRZ a couple weeks ago, and I was thoroughly impressed. Subjectively, the car felt as solid as a Porsche Cayman S, although tuned a little more for understeer. Despite the stiffer than stock suspension, it soaked up bumps well enough that I could live with it every day. I am 95% sure I will have a BRZ for my next vehicle.

    And it's personal preference, but I disagree with Sticky that the RX-8 is more attractive. While the BRZ is not as good looking as the FD RX-7 (no doubt one of the most beautiful cars ever made), it is much better looking than that weird mix of angles and curves that made the RX-8.

    Interestingly enough, the original BRZ STi concept rear end looks like an Audi:

    Great impressions.

    Lack of a turbo kind of kills it somewhat depending on the motor.

    It wil be BRZ STI?

    Well, I have somewhere between 6-18 months before my mortgage is paid off, depending on how some of my investments turn out, so it will be after that. I will probably wait on the official STi info to be revealed before making a decision, but regardless of which I buy, a turbo will be one of the first things I do to it.

    I was really impressed that despite the 215 width factory tires, it's possible to fit 255 width tires on all four corners, which greatly improves the maximum grip.

    I agree. Supposedly they did that to intentionally lower the limits of the car to make them more accessible at reasonable speeds.

    I shot this video of an FS-R this summer. Dynosty, a shop out of Kentucky had it out and they went 11.1 on their first pass down the track. The run I shot was slightly slower because they hot lapped.

    I'm a shop foreman for a car dealership which recently acquired a Subaru franchise, and between speaking with Subaru technical employees, reading magazine reviews, watching YouTube videos... it was one of those, lol. I seem to remember an interview with the Japanese designers of the car where they stated as much.

    Funny thing is, I never really considered buying one until I drove it. Even if you have no intention of buying one, I would highly recommend driving a BRZ/FR-S/GT-86 to see what it's about.

    Probably wait a few years. Buy one for $12k, strip it, and beat the living sh*t out of it at the track. I wouldn't ever buy one of these as my dd.
