I'm impressed that they decided to make an old-school sports car. It's light and nimble and designed to handle well and be fun to drive. I think everyone who wants more power, turbo/supercharger, fatter tires, etc. is missing the point. The Miata was considered one of the best driving cars for years even though it was tiny, had a small motor and skinny tires. Think of this as a Miata with a roof.

Watching racing, I see two kinds of cars: Power cars and momentum cars. The power cars are about about muscle and powering out of a corner. They don't always handle particularly well. A momentum car is down on power, but it's sharp handling makes it easier to keep the speed through corners and is often considered more fun/challenging to drive. The BRZ/FR-S is definitely a momentum car!
