@ Mental: I agree with you, the Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S/Toyota GT86 needs a turbocharger, and at the very least 250 horsepower.

That's a complete shame for the BRZ.. being beaten by a 25-old sportscar...

BRZ should have already got a turbocharger and be called BRZ STI.

@Karthick01
Why do you have to state the winner in every comparison? It's obvious. We can read.

Or is it just trolling?

Old BMW is faster than modern Subaru on the track and at the straight (it's stupid that comparison declare that BRZ is faster because it has better power/weight ratio
