Except for the Corvette ZR1’s, the Subaru BRZ’s 18.0-inch center-of-gravity height is the lowest we’ve measured.

The Porsche Cayman was one of the benchmarks during the BRZ’s development, and the ride is definitely Porsche-like. The BRZ corners flatly, and the suspension is stiff and buttoned down; it lets you feel every bump without a hint of harshness.

The tuning was no doubt made easier by a 2764-pound curb weight—312 pounds short of a Porsche Cayman R’s and almost 600 lighter than a Nissan 370Z’s—which helps the BRZ flow gracefully through right-to-left transitions.
