What's your problem with Z's? They're awesome cars.

No, i just dont see how the 350z is considered a great car. It gets horrible gas mileage, has recalls like crazy, weighs like a pig for its size. Even the creator of the Z series cars says that the 350 is far from the idea he brought to life back in the late 70's. I dont know how many people i have known that have owned one and shortly sold it. I currently have a friend selling their Z due to constant axle issues and airbag going off randomly.

Not to mention to mod the car you literally need to saw off an arm and leg.

RWD Scoin, still lame as F.uck. I'll have some more respect for a turbocharged Subaru variant.

2700lbs, rwd, 200hp... sounds good to me.
I like 350s and 370s too.

I wonder if a 'STi' or 'TRD' model will be released. Seems that the current WRX 265hp turbo would be a route they could take.

Subaru BRZ STi will be in the works. Scion's variant will not come in a turbocharged form. They'll offer common bolt-on's but not a turbo. Subaru will be taking the engine in this joint effort and providing a turbo version worthy of making this car a quick car. What the suspension looking like??? Any good??

'They' say that 4 pot Brembo's from an STi are a bolt on brake upgrade, and the suspension looks like typical Subaru stuff... sharing some things from the Impreza. The LSD is out of a Toyota/Lexus IS300. The entire suspension is photographed HERE.

Chassis performance is designed beyond stock power. These cars are built to meet a dual demand. An "off the showroom" sporty vehicle...some folks are fine with 200HP. And a cater to those who like to see what they can really do. Just add power.
