A used Cayman, or even an Sti version would be in late model pre-owned E-92 M3 territory in terms of cost. As an enthusiast, it would be hard to choose a scion over a legend.
Terrance Parker Aug 17, 2012
I've been shopping for a used Cayman, he's so right they are a bargain! It's a mid enginened turbo charged machine that is nice both inside and out.
Matthew Murtagh Aug 17, 2012
The fr-s and br-z is perfect. It's more like a training car. Low horsepower, great handling and affordable. Plus with all the parts out there, it will easy to get 300+hp. I rather keep my fr-s stock and just get new tires.
Domi Bsaibes Aug 17, 2012
Price reasonnable, like the wrx and the sti...
Domi Bsaibes Aug 17, 2012
@ brian, true, it won't have AWD due to saving some weight but they said it's gonna have 250 hp, but u're talking about making an STI version so expect upgraded suspensions brakes throttle everything. BUT, it will succeed IF they manage to keep its
Jack Howard Aug 17, 2012
The only reason youd buy a camry is because you dont have enough money for a Bentley. What a stupid statement.
Cody Jacques Aug 16, 2012
They should have had a BMW Z4M in that mix. would have been interesting... Still id take a honda s2000 over this pick. ha then take the cash id save and tune it up! s2k is like the toyota with the right amount of power.
Samuel Bonorden Aug 16, 2012
Get a BMW Z4M not this rubbish.
Zach Sullivan Aug 16, 2012
@Jackson in the 90s and early 2000s I would have agreed but now the caymen and boxster r really becoming something special imo
Dillon Dixon Aug 16, 2012
Really Jackson? Is there a real problem with that? I certainly don't think so!
Jackson Bond Aug 16, 2012
The only reason to buy a cayman ( or a boxter for that matter ) is because you can't afford the big daddy 911
Abraham Mendoza Aug 16, 2012
I hear it might have a Cbn fibre roof and about 300 hp. I really want to see that bad boy.
Aaron Crisp Aug 16, 2012
Sti version may not be AWD (Why would it when there's the WRX) but I'm sure it'll have a turbo :D
Zaire Wilkins Aug 16, 2012
this car has great chassis but that body just dosent work for me
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
Yea, what Aaron said!
Aaron Cartwright Aug 16, 2012
Brian, your right, this will never be awd, but there is an sti version on the way. The demand for an sti version is to high to be ignored. Subaru even said they plan on bringing the sti brz to market next year. Check your facts!
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Aug 16, 2012
Was coming home from work the other day on my motorcycle and came up on a FRS. It def handles thru the corners. Hes right abt 10/10ths. It doesnt have alot of grunt out corners it seems. It looks great tho
Brian Johnston Aug 16, 2012
Well domi, there's no such thing. They already said they can't put awd in them. Also why would a company make a car that would topple their flagship the wrx Sti. That would be poor business planning. It will never happen.
Zeus Mocha Aug 16, 2012
True but the sti may be at at least 9k more than the base and that could be before some optional goodies that the sti's could get. This is in reference to the wrx sti's being around 10k over base. I may be wrong. Hopefully I am, I want one.
Brady Fereday Aug 16, 2012
I thought they would race on a track
Dillon Dixon Aug 16, 2012
That Toyota is looking like one awesome car, but that Cayman is absolutely gorgeous! And that sound was a very nice touch. And of course, the 370z is just too big to compete. Not even in the competition.
Domi Bsaibes Aug 16, 2012
Well bruce, the brz sti will do the job. It's gonna be a killer!
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
Just wish they give at least 50 more hp on the next BRZ/GT-86
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
So the 370Z doesn't handle as well as we thought & the TOYOBARU is the "poor man's" Cayman!
omarSV Aug 16, 2012
I ladore the GT86 and I was a little worried when Chris decided to put it up against these two. After watching that video, I love it even more lol. I want one (white with black rims plz) :)
Danny Burns Aug 20, 2012
The STI version is gonna rock.
Zaire Wilkins Aug 19, 2012
dosent the Rx-8 have a rotary engine if you trade it in for this you must be high
Jonathan Fong Aug 17, 2012
I need a brz STi to replace my rx8...
Jackson Bond Aug 16, 2012
I saw a white scion, and I was impressed
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
I would consider getting a BRZ Sti when it comes out!
Nick Sti Aug 16, 2012
I saw a black one last weekend.... Wow they're stunning
John Serely Aug 16, 2012
I've only seen two, one silver in a dealership, an the back of a red one in a garage. If I had to pick, I'd take a blue BRZ!
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
Yea I saw a couple as well
Matt Piccolo Aug 16, 2012
Yea I've seen a few actually, in blue, red black and white! My fav was either the blue or white
Malachi Monteiro Aug 16, 2012
I've seen one of these, looked really good, but I would take a BRZ STi
Theviper007 Aug 19, 2012
@u gate nissn u hate the gt r :O shame on u
Zaire Wilkins Aug 17, 2012
lol and the Z have a better interior
Zaire Wilkins Aug 17, 2012
haha whats funny is when the corvette tried to play ketchup with the GT-R
Colby Church Aug 17, 2012
Lol @Adam xD I had a 370z try to race my Corvette yesterday, and on the interstate at that! I was laughing when he got right up on me, I then proceeded to embarrass him. He was just a little black dot 10 seconds later. Ha. They have no top end power.
Jack Howard Aug 17, 2012
Bill your comment is very flawed...
Jackson Bond Aug 16, 2012
For 62k you can buy a used 911, no point in buying a cayman then.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 16, 2012
I would consider a Cayman s IF I had the money or maybe a Carrera, but in this comparison I'd have to go with either this or the GT86. Or the BRZ since its a Subie.
Zaire Wilkins Aug 16, 2012
id take this car out of the three cause its uniqe and i like the purr of the VQ one of the best V6's in the world
Henz Herrero Aug 16, 2012
Ya but not everyone can afford a porsche.. U guys shud be more humble.. Some ppl can only afford an frs for a fun car..
Peter Mark Gacek Aug 16, 2012
Ha wow comparing a Z to a Cayman. Similar ideas of a sports car, completely different execution. Cayman blows it out of the water. Heck my 12 year old S2000 FEELS faster than the Z. Chris Harris, you need to compare the S2000 and the GT86.
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
I agree with Chris, when you think of a sports car the first thing that comes to mind is "a fast car"; then you see if it handles well, shifts good, comfortable to drive, & light the Cayman S has it all!
Pablo Herasme Aug 16, 2012
Looks low in person; great looking car.
Chris Gaines Aug 16, 2012
you guys should try paying attention, Harris called a USED cayman the bargain of the century. I would definitely pay for the extra maintenance on the Porsche than deal with the half-baked gt86. a true sports car should wow you in all aspects
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
HOLD IT!!! Yaul do know that was a USED CAYMAN S that a guy let him use right, it wasn't new!
Matt Piccolo Aug 16, 2012
I'd take the z and pocket the other 30k instead of buying the Porsche, and the z looks better imo
Dillon Dixon Aug 16, 2012
Yes, but the pride if owning a Porsche is worth the price tag
Henz Herrero Aug 16, 2012
Have you guys seen the sticker on the cayman.. I dnt think its a good buy plus the maintenance wud be expensive..
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
Hell yea, ill take the Cayman S all day; used or new!
Dillon Dixon Aug 16, 2012
How you can take this over the Cayman is beyond me. Even over the GT86.
Brady Fereday Aug 16, 2012
I'd take the the Z I've seen a few in a matte blue finish and they are amazing in that color
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
According to the video the Z doesn't well compared yo the other two
Matt Piccolo Aug 16, 2012
I would take the z too! Looks great but red wouldnt b my first color choice
Jackson Bond Aug 16, 2012
Should have bought a 911, not comparable to the other cars but why buy the porsche designed to be the middle option?
Abraham Mendoza Aug 16, 2012
It was unfair to play with this car. They should have brought a used S2000.
Peter Mark Gacek Aug 16, 2012
Love this color, my 993 Carrera is in a similar color with a black interior (cloth plaid patterned inserts!).
Bruce-Almighty Tumblin Aug 16, 2012
Ill take mine in British Racing Green thank you!
John Serely Aug 16, 2012
*id *Hesitation
John Serely Aug 16, 2012
If take this car without hesiatation.
Dillon Dixon Aug 16, 2012
What a beautiful car! Definitely #1.
