    @nismofury Well, it’s faster than a 1976 Lamborghini countach… Would you consider the Lamborghini a sports car?

  • Kamukix says:

    Another curious thing he says @ 6:10 is that the car is ‘relatively slow’ doing 0-60 in just under 7 seconds……then the graphic comes up showing 0-60 in 6.3 seconds?

    I’m pretty sure that is 0-60 in just over 6 seconds, and significantly faster than 7 seconds (by nearly a second actually).

    Both cars are great cars with more than enough power for a sensible FUN sports car (what sports cars are all about). I hope this sparks something in the future. (instead of more horsepower wars)


  • thegreenkrss says:

    coming soon … turbo powered brz and gt86

  • Faizan Khan says:

    why would i buy this when i could get a faster mustang? affordable would be 15k-18k not 25k

  • tCMODDER says:

    You sell cars and you don’t even understand horsepower isnt everything? I call shenanigans.

  • LoloBear7 says:

    This is great! I think 200hp is enough for daily use & a lil fun. This car was meant to be a tuner base, so of course, if you’re into more performance, there’s plenty of aftermarket add-ons.

  • Slipknotfan2100 says:

    i no this might sound dumb, but does the BRZ have a sunroof option, ive never seen any pictures of them

  • Shxrtyy says:

    How tall is Mike? I’m 6’1 and was wondering if it was be to “small” for me.

  • dunhillsupramk3 says:

    toyota already owns a % of Subaru so when you buy any Subaru model toyota automatically gets the money

  • splidude says:

    Are You From Future? 2013?

  • supernuggetfy says:

    the transmission is from a Lexus IS-F. look it up on wiki.

  • supernuggetfy says:

    not only that, the Subaru has day-time running lights and the Subaru grill

  • supernuggetfy says:

    Toyota frs looks uglier.

    a back-wheel drive Subaru is just different (the first back-wheel drive Subaru in the USA in 20 years)

    there is a BRZ STI version coming out in the future

  • shajou says:

    you buying subaru is already giving toyota money though xD

  • PSBeachBum says:

    agreed. The only reason I would get the subaru model is because I am a subaru guy. But then theres owning a 2wd subaru that is embarassing but I will be damned if I give toyota my money.

  • 4cellar2door0 says:

    LOL you just made yourself look like such a retard…

  • manbearkremer says:

    id really like to get a wrx 4 or 5 door but gas mileage + premium gas + initial coast [for the sti version] are its down falls. the brz is better on gas and has a better starting point but its not as practical as the wrx. iron out the kinks and give me a car with more options that doesnt need premo gas + good on gas and ill buy one. honestly thinking about getting a vw gti

  • Johannes Müller says:

    good review, like the BRZ, but it’s not the transmission that’s spinning at 2000revs, it’s the engine

  • MrComputereviews says:

    i would never buy a 2wd subaru theres no point might as well get a toyota

  • xXeddieOo says:

    I wish they would make faster cars atleast 300hp seriously…

  • umaxen01 says:

    Hmmm, no thanks. I’ll wait until the torque equals hp…

  • 851995STARGATE says:

    Lol, but then you still have to appreciate the people that mod them up

  • ibbong420 says:

    I agree with that, i think a perfect example would be the mustang- the things like an asshole, everyone has one.

  • 851995STARGATE says:

    Yes I agree, if this car was sold in higher quantities then it would do better but then again that would ruin the uniqueness of this car, you would see three or four of them everyday driven by people that don’t even understand the point of the car

  • ibbong420 says:

    ps spend the extra 2-3 grand and get a wrx
