I honestly don't see the newer models being THAT much better. Going off of this YouTube video I found, 0 to 60 seems to be in the mid-six second range. I'd expect a little bit better out of almost 300 HP.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a well-launched, hard-shifted BRZ somewhere in the mid- to high-six second range?

I understand that car's a more then just 0-60 times. If your into turbo's I believe the gen coupe provides a pretty powerful "entry level (under 30k)" car. If one prefers a high revving N/A BRZ/FRS might be for you.

BRZ about 600 pounds lighter. Gen coupe has a very long wheel base and is considered a "longer" coupe.

SPDSKTER, I wasn't coming at you when I quoted you. You just happened to give all of the comparable MSRP's so I added another option
