Because they designed the car together. I believe Toyota designed the body, and Subaru the engine?

all they need is a turbo and a little work. Look up the Crawford Performance BRZ lol. That is pushing the limits of the little 2.0 boxer

Funny enough I drove an FRS today - Mama was gonna trade her baby in for newer model so I thought I grasp the moment.

First to tell you the outcome - my CAMARO sooooo much better.

I am a 6'3" big ass dude with a size 16 shoe size. I step on both pedals a lot of the time. Nice little engine a maybe zippy because it is a smaller car but still WTF small.

The FR-S was more fun to drive than the BRZ however that's possible. More fun than the Camaro too. Less power than my 2LT, smaller and cost more too insure. But fun as hell to drive. I prefer the appearance of the BRZ over the FR-S. I think the BRZ I tested was defected. I know they had some issues. Camaro will probably handle Cleveland winters better. That was a big factor for me. The Camaro is sexier. But some times I still think I should have went for the BRZ(not the one I tested). It suits my driving style and personality better than a big heavy automatic.

I have seen a few running around. A lot of people give them great reviews as a fun, cheap coupe. Most of the reviews I have read indicate with a SC or TC and brake upgrade, they could give an SS and run for its money...

This is exactly it in my mind. I had a blast test driving the one I did - flurries just started falling, really fun to let the back end slide out and get a few burnouts in. Zippy is the best way to describe it as is. Put some boost on it and it should be pushing 300hp at a significantly lesser weight than our camaros.

Is this a serious post?


OP they are much slower. They handle extremely well though. They are aimed more at sports coupes like miata and the now dead solstice.

Finally, someone that can see the forest for the trees.

Yeah, this car wasn't designed to be a quarter mile monster, it was designed to be fun to drive.

This coming from someone who owns a V6.

The car was designed from scratch from the ground up. It has nothing in common with the Celica.

Celica? What part? Lol Those cars were made to revive the "import tuner" scene.

Obviously he is referring to the fact that it has four wheels and an enclosed cockpit.
