2013 Subaru BRZ: Reminds Me Of...
August 28, 2012
We've had a few FR-S or BRZ posts or stories about these cars reminding us of previous cars. A few days ago Michael Jordan met up with an RX-7 engineer. Earlier Mark Takahashi noted the lineage of the Celica and Dan Frio thought of the 3 Series. We also had our FR-S and 1985 Toyota Corolla GT-S feature comparison.
I guess you can't help but do this once you're seated in the BRZ or FR-S. I suspect it's because there just hasn't been a car out like this for so long. Personally, I've been thinking back to the times I drove a first-gen RX-7, various Miatas and a Porsche 944.
I really like our BRZ's light weight, willing engine, quick shifter and honest communication. And to quote Michael from his RX-7 post: "Not too big, not ambitious, but also not too expensive."
It's very nice to once again see an affordable hardtop sports car/sport coupe back on the market that prioritizes driver involvement.
