If it is I'll get one
Zach Sullivan Jul 21, 2012
I herd the Sri brz is going to be turbo with 300hp but like I said I just herd that so it might be wrong
Aislin Cooper Jul 21, 2012
Oops I confused the FR-S and BRZ. sorry.
Aislin Cooper Jul 21, 2012
@Chris I think they're making an FRS STI
David Purcell Jul 21, 2012
Looks pretty good
Chris Penza Jul 21, 2012
I sure hope they make an frs version of this
John Serely Jul 21, 2012
Looks good, I love the wheels
Johnny Francis Jul 21, 2012
Sickkk! Looks like a beast!

Please never refer to the Hyundai genesis coupe as a track car ...ever...steering is so vague it's silly...frs/brz feels incredible around a track...take an avg driver...frs/brz hands down better
Aaron Cartwright Jul 23, 2012
@hove what you do t realize is that track days are cheep if you go with a club. You would know that if you'd ever been. Oh and yes I'd rather have the brz over, 135! One is a lot cheaper to tune and repair. I do love the 135i though!
Aaron Cartwright Jul 23, 2012
Sorry hov I do t buy it, you haven't compared times. The works is a much better handling car. I've seen them both at the track driven by the same driver and the works allways wins. I like the brz and track days are only 50$ lol not expensive
Aaron Cartwright Jul 23, 2012
@brady, Will is right Kia is a great car now. And remember they race against handa civics, scion tc's, and other smaller cars. The bigger ones race against TL's and other similar cars. Check out sports car series of America.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 23, 2012
Nope you definitely don't want that..
William Downs Jul 22, 2012
yea brady there isba huge difference between kia then and now... and my kia dont get passed by much, dog kia all u want but there is a reson why there still points leader in continental sports car series over bmw, porsche and mazda, and there still only running one car after the crash at road america... ur ignorance towards cars really showed with that statment since both kia and hyundai have one ...
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
Ya that's what I don't want
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
Just look up"aps 350z oil pan" it has baffles in it so your motor won't starve mid corner, and it holds an extra quart as well. Really good product and i believe it works with the stock pump as well. Friend of mine found out the hard way in his 350z
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
What is the site?
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
Ya it drinks oil lol xD I've been to the track with it twice my problem is its about 2 hours from me but I live in a Moutain and a lot of canyon roads I take it up
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
@brady you should look into getting an aps pan for your z.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
Nice but you've never tracked it or you put an aftermarket oil pan and pump on. that engine has an oil starvation problem in tight corners.
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
It's an 03 track edition
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
Hey Brady what year is your fairlady? Really hope your not refuring to an 80's or 90's one cause if you are you really don't understand what a drivers car is.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
@hov have driven the abarth cause it's not even half as good as the mini. Lol Oh and the mx-5 is the most raced car in the world.
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
And your Kia is probably amazing at getting passed lol xD
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
I've owned a Kia shit feel apart but it was my first car my parents had a Hyundai elantra 08 and 2010 Santa fa they both feel apart Kia and Hyundai have a lot of catching up to do before I give them what they deserve after I've seen and driven both
William Downs Jul 22, 2012
whats ur point.. i drive a kia... and its a very reliable car and fully loaded for under 20k. is amazing around the track also.. i have alot more say then u do considering ive actually driven this car, almost bought the brz but its was gonna be north of 30k after taxes and the finance rate was rediculious.
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
And I support Asian cars and drive only Japanese cars my current car is a fairlady Z and I'm just disappointed that this car isn't what it should be coming from these 2
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
William you drive a Kia you have no say
Daniel Eads Jul 22, 2012
@Hovie, why don't you think before you open your mouth, and Brady Subaru already has the wrx and the sti to fill that area of the market. Why would they compete against themselves?
William Downs Jul 22, 2012
well hovie shows u know nothing cause there already selling, and ur ignorant trash to dictate a car as "a fag or chick car"... and brady ur still missing the point of the car, subaru and toyota can build a car with more power easily but they choose not to since now a days everyone tunes there cars for different things, this is just a starting point for people to make what they want but since u onl...
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
To wait for the STI version or TRD version but this is a sad TRD edition they should have at least touched the motor a little bit
Brady Fereday Jul 22, 2012
Look I understand the car I get it but it just feels like Subaru got lazy and just allowed toyota tell them what to do instead of them taking the reigns and buliding the monster that this car should have been in the first place without having
Patrick Schalk Jul 22, 2012
Oil filler cap? Seriously?
Kyle Smith Jul 22, 2012
LOL Brady, again you just restated a point you've made previously. We get it! Nobody cares that a bunch of 16-18k cars are going to tear this thing up. This isn't a speed demon and you still can't comprehend the car's purpose. Leave the speed aside.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
To all the haters, would you rather have another celica?
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
@kyle awesome, couldn't have said it better!
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
All I can say Brady, is you obviously haven't driven the thing. So you have no experiance to base your opinion. If you have driven one and you still don't get this car, it's cause you never took the time to learn to actually drive.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
I mentioned it cause it's in your pic, was using it to make a point, not based on other people opinions. I actually have experiance driving the 5.0 and driving a car that gives u confidence is allways the better way to go/usually faster to.Thats all
Maria Garcia Jul 22, 2012
If there actually is a turbo model of the BRZ/FR-S, I wonder how much it's going to cost since the BRZ limited already cost $29k.
Daniel Eads Jul 22, 2012
You guys really don't get the point of this car do you? This is a drivers car! Like the mx-5 all they focused on was driving pleasure not straight line speed. Almost every comparison with other cars the gt86 came on top because they said it was so...
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
This car should have been 16-18k for it to be as good as you guys make it out to be hell you can get a year old car that would tear this thing up
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Jul 21, 2012
Yea I just change the pic Aaron but I still never mentioned it
Paul Pickard Jul 21, 2012
I don't really understand where this thing is cheap? 25k plus is hardly cheap. I sincerely doubt I'll have to worry about these showing up at englishtown raceway and giving my wrx a lot of trouble.
Kyle Smith Jul 21, 2012
Boss, I typed that I would rather BUY this car over most V6s. I never said anything about what I consider faster. Learn to read. You've still got your mind wrapped around the whole speed issue. Leave it. You keep repeating yourself and it's annoying
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
What v6s than Kyle cause the v6s that would be rear wheel drive would destroy this car now the front wheel drive v6s would lose to it
Kyle Smith Jul 21, 2012
Haters gonna hate. This is a great car hands down. So what if it doesn't have 400hp? You guys are like 5 year olds just interested if a car's fast. There's more to a car than that. I find the BRZ/FRS unique in the market and I'd buy one over most V6s
Jairo Garcia Jul 21, 2012
All they did is just add more dead weight for that little boxer engine to lug around. Need to amp up the engine bay
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
Bruce your pic by your name was a 5.0 logo till you just changed it lok
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
Actually Bruce I know a lot, I have laguna, thunder hill and sears point, all within an hour or so of me. There also a big auto cross scene here, and I worked for a few shops in the area as well. Oh the turbo fr-s and brz are on the way, don't worry!
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Jul 21, 2012
@Aaron, ha ha ha 1st. I didn't mention anything about a Mustang you did 2nd. I like the TOYOBARU I just wish they could have gave it at least 275hp & torque OR made it easy for us to modify it (because that's what we are going to do anyways) 3rd. Be honest how many guys you know that race regular or modified cars in a circuit track? Ill bet not a whole lot!
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
@Bruce love how you think just because a professional put down some good lap times in a stang you think it's still fast with average Joe drivin, but truth is, you would probably be faster in this car on a track than in your 5.0
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Jul 21, 2012
Hell they could have kept the aero kit & cosmetics, them use the money to put work in the motor; ALL SHOW & NO GO!
Flymcbean Jul 21, 2012
David, initial D isn't accurate.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
All I'm sayin is wait a few months and go to your local track and watch these things destroy your fav cars!
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
Ive been waiting for a car like this a long time! So glad they finally made it, and also glad that a lot of people just don't understand how great it is. Can't wait to suprise a few z and porche owners on the track!! ; )
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
Brady, I had an old 86 jetta that was lightened to 1,900 and had suspension mods. With a stock 136hp motor that killed camero's and mustangs back in 98. Raced olmost every night on a small 8 mile stretch of mountian rd. power isn't everything.
William Downs Jul 21, 2012
david its not based off the 86, its the spiritual succesor and is based off attributes from multiple toyota cars, only thing it has in common with the 86 is its amazing balance, and brady this upgraded would kill a wrx around a track, this is a handling focused car, and again as already stated by many its just a great, cheap tuning platform for tuners and racing teams.
Cory Deines Jul 21, 2012
Sorry Brady but this is not going to be dominating Mustangs or Camaros anytime soon. It may handle slightly better but it just doesn't have near enough power to compete.
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
All I'm saying is I wanted to see this thing come and dominate the mustang the Z and the camaro or at least be in there class I would have gotten one if it had but instead is comp is civics and speed 3s and the focus
David Guerrero Jul 21, 2012
Besides, the GT86 is based on the original AE86 (levin/trueno). They werent power monsters like the GTR, Supra, or RX7. They were light and great downhill drifters.
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
The toyboru is a knife in a gun fight
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
It doesn't matter any other rear wheel drive will smoke this car
David Guerrero Jul 21, 2012
You an idiot, your comparing a world class rally car to a RWD sports coupe.
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
Cause ya you can tune it when you buy it but by time you spent the time tuning it and spending money on it to go faster it will still be slower than a stock STI I'm willing to bet
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
This car is a disappointment to me
William Downs Jul 21, 2012
of course he didnt, just like he still dosnt get the point of this car, like phillip said on another pic its bare bones cause its an amazing starting point for drivers and tuners, has all the basics u need to make a great car whatever they do to the car tuners are gonna change anyway so its just a blank canvas to make ur own beast
Phillip Fitchew Jul 21, 2012
Correct. The aero is much improved and suspension counts for a LOT I'm RWD cars. Also, I think they kept the engine stock with the assumption that it's the first place tuners will start tinkering. Helps keep the price down, too.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
Just because there's no mods to the motor doesn't mean this thing isn't at least a second to two seconds a lap faster!
Brady Fereday Jul 21, 2012
So they put stickers and a body kit on it -_- still not worth it

their customer base was going to want. It's a very well thought out and classy approach.
Kev Berkel Jul 22, 2012
This ride height with the spoiler makes the side profile look awesome. it always looked kind of plain in the back
Aislin Cooper Jul 22, 2012
I think the 4 tips look great but I will agree that they're unnecessary
Michael Davidson Jul 22, 2012
Reminds me of an m3.
Edgar Hernandez Jul 21, 2012
4 tips is pointless on this car, it doesn't even need 2 tips.
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
I like how the kit looks just wish it blended better with the car and didn't have those hard plastic looking lines where it meets the body of the car.
Zaire Wilkins Jul 21, 2012
i cant just get with those tailights if i could i would remake them to shape along with the car
Manuel Pulgarin Jul 21, 2012
looks nice. i would buy one
Preston Harris Jul 21, 2012
Philip that's a good argument, man I see your point on the tuning.
Kyle Janchenko Jul 21, 2012
I like it! I'm honestly a fan of mid-engined over front, but I would drive this! I think that Toyota did a great job delivering what they promised, and I actually see the modest engine size as a positive on a car like this.
No Pistons Jul 21, 2012
His point is 4 tips are not needed for a 4 cyl and is in fact added weight for cosmetics. It's like how silly it is that the rx8 has twin tips when it only has one header, added weight for looks.
William Downs Jul 21, 2012
way to go phillip, u understand the point of the car, and this kit looks really nice my only problem i have with these car arebthe ebay tail lights, and its not even the shape its just the clear lens with the chrome housing
Phillip Fitchew Jul 21, 2012
canvas for the tuner's masterpiece. I don't think anyone can deny that the new 86 offers one hell of a platform on which to build a seriously sick ride.
Phillip Fitchew Jul 21, 2012
The same ideas are definitely in play here. The car is underwhelming stock, but has all the properties needed to be great after tuning. The heritage of the 86 is not to be born great, but to be made into greatness. Toyotas' job is to provide the
Phillip Fitchew Jul 21, 2012
"Actually needs?" By leaving the boxer stock and upgrading the exhaust, they only playbmore to what tuners are naturally going to want to do. They caught a lot of guff for the actual FT being kinda bare bones, but that's what it MEANS to be an 86.
Preston Harris Jul 21, 2012
Either way the back still looks pretty great
Preston Harris Jul 21, 2012
I don't think it actually needs all four exhaust pipes...silly Toyota
Yousef Khorsheed Jul 22, 2012
Looks like LFA-lookalike
Yousef Khorsheed Jul 22, 2012
Looks like a s2000 rear view
Ahklil Sadiqi Jul 21, 2012
fine piece of ass. it should've been turbo'd
Kyle Schott Jul 21, 2012
Not a fan of the rear, makes it stick out too much. Also disappointing to put TRD on it without an accompanying increase in power.
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 23, 2012
I would say Michelin is the tire industry equivalent to Porsche in the auto industry. They don't necessarily make the nĂºmero uno, best of the best, but they make the most well rounded product in their respective markets. Therefore, they are the best!
Aaron Cartwright Jul 22, 2012
Ya I had the cups on my old 240z and they are amazing but sooo expensive and I only got 3 months of driving out of them.
Aislin Cooper Jul 22, 2012
Wow slotted rotors. Legit
Aiden Bass Jul 21, 2012
I've run Pilot Super Sports on my car and theyre great. For 30k miles until its $2K for a new set
Aaron Cartwright Jul 21, 2012
Those are great tires, but to not break the bank, I'd run the Bridgestone re11's.
Henz Herrero Jul 21, 2012
I love michelin esp on my car unless its time to change them.. Bank breaker..
William Downs Jul 21, 2012
i think trd uses brembo breaks just places there tag on them instead
Phillip Fitchew Jul 21, 2012
Another nod to tuner culture. It looks nice ass is, but this is just screaming "your Brembos here."
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 23, 2012
I think it mates to the interior very well. Simple and spartan for the most part. I strongly dislike overly complicated interiors/steering wheels.
Vince DeMasi Jul 21, 2012
Well it is supposed to be a tuner car so it makes sense
Michael Gallagher Jul 21, 2012
The whole inside looks very... Blah.but I didn't expect any less
Henz Herrero Jul 21, 2012
I dk if they assume that everyone will be changing steering wheels but damn.. Thats one bland steering wheel..
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 23, 2012
God I miss my s2k.
Maris George Jul 21, 2012
S2k all the way...
