what do you guys think about the toyobaru's?

All i see, is stuff about the fr-s and the brz. From stuff i've read, it seems that toyota's only real input to the project was the body styling and that subaru did the rest. I think having it under scion in the us will be cool cause of how they let you customise things. The subaru one is a little odd to me because it has their typical boxer engine but without a turbo, so it kinda seems like it is a regular impreza that someone slapped sti logos on.

silver one is scion f-rs, blue one is subaru brz

The BRZ is no Impreza. Its RWD first off. And there is no turbo announced, although it is believed that when the STi comes out in 2014 it will be a turbo car. I love the look and the performance. Lower center of gravity than ferrari's? sounds good to me

Not the STi version though I read they want to push the base first before the STi comes. I mean who would want the non-STi version? lol
