Have you guys all seen the Subaru BRZ Enthusiast Test Drive video Full Version? It's here in this thread, check it out!
Great review scotto! The full video is awesome too! You guys looked like kids in a candy store. I can't wait to experience that feeling. Just as I thought that Subaru was dropping the ball on good customer service around this car, they do a nice gesture like this.
Also, every single review has been positive and they have all shared similar experiences. This is definitely the car to beat in the next few years.
"Proud of Boxer"
It's kind of funny because I wrote out ~ 5 pages of reviews after the drive. And as I went around the net and read other auto reviewers takes on the BRZ I would find at least one characterization from each review that would match my impressions. For instance on the shoot day one of my impressions about the BRZ is that it feels like a Sports Bike. Because the nose of the car has an almost mass-less feel to it, and you feel like you are in the center of the car, and the back feels light too. This is due to moving as much mass towards the center of the car as possible and as low as possible. On a Sport Bike you have a similar situation most of the mass is concentrated just underneath you. In the BRZ the center of gravity is right at your hip joint - yes, that low! And everything between the front and the back feels like there is no flex whatsoever so there is this wonderful integrity to the car. Again like a Sport Bike. So it's this pure handling machine that you integrate with - like a Sport Bike. I think a review from Car and Driver said the BRZ was like the worlds slowest Sport Bike. I was like - Yes!, that's what I felt!
And it's also the worlds safest Sport Bike too!
I happen to like motorcycles too, but getting off of one can be a cruel wake up call for some... So maybe the Sports hunger could be more safely satisfied in the BRZ?!
I like your "proud of boxer" reference to the GT300 car Also like the Darth Vader Bobble Head aspect of your STi!
So are you going to pick up a BRZ? Personally I think it would be great to have both a WRX and BRZ!
Here's a little review I wrote as a subscriber at Road and Track on the BRZ:
Here's some behind the scenes photos from the this photo/video shoot by Subaru:
For the new BRZ owners, what have been your first impressions on driving your BRZ?
