18 One car three names. Choose your favourite!

Sorry FastestLaps, but what is the sense making voting for one car with different names? It's most likely to "choose your favourite brand". I decided to vote for Subaru, cause I like this brand more than Scion and BRZ has 2Nm more than GT86 (LOL!). Ah, yeah, and Subaru's acceleration is better (Subaru's 0-60 - 6.4 vs Toyota's 7.4 and 0-100 16.4 vs 17.8 - that's well big difference, LOL!

I choose GT-86 since my sister sold her Hyundai and bought GT-86 ;).

I would have voted for Toyota GT 86, although that version isn't sold in my country, we have the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S.

Toyota actually did the designing. Even in the engine. Toyota also has the heritage - the original Sports 800 which featured RWD and a Toyota BOXER engine, the 2000GT, Celica, Supra, MR2, AE86 etc. Oh, and it was Toyota's idea in the first place. ;)

Regarding speed, Toyota's official figures are always slower than the truth, not sure why. Scion FR-S is clocked at 6.4 to 60.

Handling - Subaru's handling is more neutral were as the Toyota is more nimble. Look on YT, head to head on Suzuka I think it was.

I'll link to my website if you need more ;)

@mental:
The drivetrain is designed and made by Subaru, and MT says the BRZ handles better...but I guess you are right about this being a brand war

@vette
I guess people vote for the GT 86 (not for the FRS) just because it's Toyota. Many people own Toyota, and they would rather vote for another Toyota than for a car, which has so not unfamiliar name. As I had said earlier, it's actually voting for the fav brand.

how is it that the Toyota gets as many votes as the BRZ but the Scion, which is 100% the same as the Toyota gets so much less?
We all know that the BRZ is the fastest and the better handling so why?! people love Toyotas now?

They compared them to each other and to Mazda Roadster (MX-5)

I could care less about Brand Imaging, the Brand makes no difference to me, its the car, not the Image, I wouldnt care if this had a DaeWoo or TupperWear Badge.

Hehe they are all good cars. People will vote 4 the brand. As far as i know the engine and suspension are Subaru's, the ingnition, chasis, overall design and stuff like that are Toyota's. I voted GT-86

This is not about choosing favorite car - as, clearly, it's the same car. It's about choosing favorite nameplate. The one that sounds the best, the one that has "your favorite" brand etc.

I voted for Subaru BRZ, because it sounds mean! :)
