7.3 seconds to 60? Sad.

A 15.3 quarter mile? Laughable.

69.1 on the slalom? Meh, not bad.

0.92 on the skid pad? Moderately quick...

Honestly, though, it sounds like shit and even the wheel spin sounds girly. I knew this car wouldn't be impressive. Not to mention, it looks like it needs a turbocharger, but the engine bay will really limit the options for one.

Just proves what I thought from the beginning: I don't like this car.

I think it'll take over the void left by the RX-8, slow, pretty, but with pretty good handling.

It'll also take over as ricer king.

And they're really limited in number. What was it, under 4,000 for the Subaru version?

Even if you assume 2700 lbs. with 200 flywheel horsepower you get about 14.6 1/4 time. Drive sucks or the power is not what they state. It is brand new so I am sure it would get faster with breakin but .7 seconds. I don't think so. Maybe it needs a driver mod.

the more I see of this car, the more it is disappointing me.

I'm also starting to think what all the fuss was about?? just where exactly has all the hype and testing/technology been invested into? its certainly not the performance??

If its the handling then why??

I'm also starting to think it resembles a Hyndai or something?

I'm going off it.

25k for the scion version

the brz is estimated no more then 30k

I'm so glad i didn't wait for this car. I really wanted this when the subaru version was suppose to be turbocharged and have 300hp.

Ended up buying my first evo instead a year ago.....way better choice.

The Scion version may get a TRD Supercharger which may make these cars more palatable.

The reason its hyped is because its the first new RWD car to come out in a while. Also because it has a lower center of gravity than a ferrari 458 and an Enzo

none of which seem to materialized into even mediocre numbers.
