As 2014 kicks into full swing, we’re excited to start a new series featuring some of the hottest platforms available on the market today. The series will be broader than a strict “build guide,” as we want to present an overview of the platform, our initial impression behind the wheel, its strengths and weaknesses, and present feedback from tuners who have already had their hands dirty with these vehicles. We hope it will inform both purchasing decisions as well as what direction to take your car in once the keys are in your hand.
With that said, let’s introduce our first platform, the Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S /Toyota GT86 (since Scion doesn’t exist overseas, it flies under the Toyota banner). It’s a car, or group of cars, that really needs no introduction.
