But like!!!1 No!!!

They are light, they have 200ps, they've still got a 0-60 of like...7.5s or something, which is fine!

But yeah. Everything is turbo'd now...and it can't compete on performance terms.

But it bloody can compete in 'pure' driving terms.

Low
Brilliant driving position
Proper sporty gearchange
weighty steering
Tough build quality
Sounds great when worked (IMO)
decent ride considering the lovely handling
Still got 4 seats! (yes you'll have to be a slimmer LK or child (equivalent) to fit in the back)

Even me with my very inexperienced nature of RWD cars....you can feel that the car is...adjustable...you can feel that back end is willing to play a little bit. Lovely, lovely thing.

I drove one on the same day as a new WRX. The WRX was very fast and hardcore...it clattered along the road and speed and with immense grip...you held on for dear life. It was fun and intense...and enjoyable... but you battled the road.

In the BRZ....you play with the road. It's a different, more involving experience.

May i add - i have not driven this particular one, just photo'd it.

I’d love to try one ....

My brother and his Mrs get their new cars this weekend..

BMW i3 and Renault Zoe ....

Reviews to follow.

I’m sure I won’t get tired of asking them if their cars are plugged in, nor unplugging them when I am drunk

Yes, it will be boring! Fast but boring!

The BRZ is not very fast...but it is fun.

It shouldn't be any bigger or anything.

But yes....if they had a more powerful option, perhaps it would have sold more.

But it's pure! It's built from the group up to be the car it is! It's not based on another car....or another car made into a coupe..it was designed to be the way it is....and you can feel that!

there is bound to be a specialist somewhere that bolts turbos on to make these super fun......its a nice looking car (not so much on the inside - yes, i know you like it crisps) but it could do with another 100hp

If you want a manual Golf R, get one while you can! Apparently they're only going to be available with the DSG 'box in the not too distant future.
