I like it, but its seems to be a Ferrari-ized 2008 z4 Coupe.

They should just bring back the z4 coupe.

Okay, so it's just a Chevy Sonic, but this is my favorite car stunt:

Very reminiscent of the big rag top Caddies of the '50s and '60s.

I actually spent a couple of days not too long ago lapping the Nurburgring in a BRZ and had a blast.
At least one company is working on turning them up to 11. I'm wondering how much power it would make with just a "prepped" naturally aspirated engine. Low 300hp range would be nice in a car that weighs ~2700 pounds such as this. I'm hoping Subaru sells a million of them.

I guess people are complaining that the Subaru BRZ doesn't quite have enough power. People are starting to swap in GM V8s:
