Good thing this thread is about fun to drive, cheap sports cars. Meaning crying about luxury (read: weight) options means you're the cancer. The miata costs less and is a fucking convertible. Even if the lack of the LSD somehow made the superior miata worse than the brz, the vert would easily make up for it.

Are the back 2 seats even real though? It just didn't seem practical enough to me. I think both are excellent platforms, people are making stable 350whp/350tq on the Fiesta with a big turbo.

Personally, I'm running the stock turbo with a tune making 220whp/270tq and it's kinda crazy.

I DD a Fiesta ST, and it is a car that makes me smile like an idiot and laugh out loud at how fun it is. That's kind of why I picked it over the BRZ, to be honest. Not that the BRZ wouldn't be fun, but it just looks so much more serious, and I kind of hate it. It's image writes a check it just can't cash, while the Fiesta is a hatch with more than enough power to back up its looks. The BRZ crowd is mostly insufferable too, with the whole boy racer get up. Also, I take people in the back of my car, and I take my dog with me places too. Literally no regrets over taking the Fiesta, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

My Z pisses in your FRS's intake, fuck off queer.
Go ahead and benchrace. I've owned more vehicles than you've seen years, and I was thoroughly underwhelmed by the FRS. The interior is 90s KIA tier too.

They are what got me interested in sports coupes again, but they are a letdown in reality. And I am a Toyota fanboi. The 370z blew the FRS away in the feels dept, that's why I bought one instead.

The 370z has Jap class with muscle acceleration, and the handling characteristics you'd expect from a traditional two seat rwd coupe making 330+hp at the crank.

You fell for the meme, while people who actually like cars and driving chose any number of quicker sharp handling cars in the price range.

>>
>>14178111
If you weren't a benchracing queer you might want to try actually driving cars for fun. It's not built to break track records, but to be a fun toy that has potential with some small investment from the owner.
>>
>>14178118

>Implying I don't have cars for fun.

Saying a car has potential is biggest fucking cop out ever. And no the car isn't a fun toy. Because there are far better cars out there at being a fun toy.

It was a marketing stunt by Subaru and Toyota to get nostalgic bellends to buy their crap. The fact remains in 2016 there are better cars at that price point, that give you just as much fun, as well as all the benefits of not having a proper sized car.

There is a reason cheap RWD cars aren't made anymore. Because cheat FWD Hot Hatches have overtaken them.

The GT86 and it's other derivatives are marketing cons. The only people that buy them and man children who can't afford real sports cars like a Porsche.
>>
>>14177720
The back seats of the BRZ are kinda like a camp toilet, not something you use all the time, but when you need it you are grateful it's there.
>>
>>14178142
What else out there is a small light RWD coupe for cheap? Nothing. The Miata is a convertible, and everything else is bigger and heavier.
>There is a reason cheap RWD cars aren't made anymore. Because cheat FWD Hot Hatches have overtaken them.
So you are just still benchracing.
>not a real sports car somehow
You're still going just by 100% stock, because that is what benchracers do. People who actually drive cars and enjoy driving can look at a car and see "OK, I can do this, this, and this, and it'll be way better for my tastes". Case in point with the new 86, different tires and track brake pads alone cut 40 seconds off of the 'ring time. Camber bolts in the front help you more.

Or you could just be a faggot who buys a hot hatch just because it benchraces better, not because he wants a hot hatch. If you do want a hot hatch, then you're not shopping for a BRZ in the first place.
>>
>>14178142

IF you want a cheap RWD car that's fun, and you can tinker with, you buy second hand.

A 997 can be had for the same price in the UK as a brand new 86. And you're saying I'm a benchracer for choosing a Porsche 911 over a GT86? Fuck off retard.

You know whats more fun than a GT86. A £1500 SW20. How about £500 MG Midget on skinny tires. OR £15k 350z?

You're lecturing someone on being a benchracer when you're advocating buying a GT86 and then modding it, because it has potential. When any sane car person would buy spend that money on a leagues better car in the first place. Get the fuck out.
>>
>>14178223
No, you're a benchracer for choosing a hot hatch over a sports car purely for its benchracing. Obviously used cars are cheaper. No fucking shit. That's stupidly obvious.
>>
>>14178200
It wouldn't be surprising, but it would be hearsay, seeing as it's a baseless claim with no supporting evidence.
>>
>>14178232

I choose a Hot Hatch because I'm not a man child. I have a fast practical car, and a fast second hand car. And all for less than a GT86. What's the problem with that?

The Fiesta ST costs 18k in the UK. While a GT86 is around 27K. Why buy the 86 When you can have the ST AND an old MX5 or MR2 or a TT or a Z4? for less or around the same price?
>>
>>14178242
What proof could there be?
>>
>>14178223
have you researched the running costs of a track focused Porsche?

the miata and 86 are popular track cars because of their potential and relatively cheap running cost.

Also, the fact that you suggested a 350z out of all things just shows you don't know what you are talking about.
>>
>>14178249
Then you are choosing practically, and perfectly fine. JUST choosing for benchracing laptimes is retarded. So you're aight.
>>
>>14178264

We aren't talking about track focused cars here. We are talking about real world, day to day capabilities. yeah sure a Porsche will have higher running costs. But you'd be saving anywhere from 5-10k on the initial purchase. Which offsets the running costs by a massive margin.

The only reason to buy a GT86 is because you want a manufacturers warranty.
>>
>>14178280
Why would you buy a 997 if you don't plan on going to the track?

You realize you would never reach the limits of the car on public roads right?

You clearly don't live in the North East of England. With the roads we have here.

Yes the car hits the track, quite a lot int he summer. But I also use it as a daily in the summer. If i were building a track focused car, it wouldn't be a 997. But it's a car I can comfortable blast around a track, and then still drive it home at the end of the day.

>>14176918
By these metrics, my Kia Forte Turbo is better. Better price line, better torque, better passenger and cargo volume, and it's quicker (with the automatic, at least). It even stops sooner, even with being almost 300 pounds heavier. Its one major failing is handling and steering feel, but those weren't displayed in your little graphic.

>>14178656

Not saying I prefer Semi-Auto to manual. Because I do prefer a proper manual. But considering how I use the 997 I think I made a good choice.

I track it, but I also do a lot of miles in it. The last few years I've took it on road trips across Europe, from the North of England, down the South of France, to the Alps, up to the Czech Republic and back via the Ring in Germany. And the Semi-Auto really gave me the best of both worlds.
>>
>>14176090
>, which do you prefer and why?
The 86, mainly because of the people who buy the Fiesta are lets be honest here chavs who couldn't afford a Focus ST or RS. Every fiesta ST has had the stock recirculation valve replaced with a dump valve linked to a megaphone that must be sounded any time they get to move a car length in traffic. As a hatch it is a little more practical but I couldn't live with the image.
>>
>>14178688
There's no such thing as semi-auto, it's automatic and nothing more.
>>
>>14178594
No argument there. Grip pads only tell you so much. And even then, tires play so much of a role that comparison is hard. A change in rubber lowered the skid results for the FR-S in the newer model years even though the car is functionally the same.

Semi-Automatic Transmission sounds like it's a torque converter auto with some kind of manual shifter (buttons, paddles, shift lever, etc.) Not a single or dual clutch manual with some kind of automated shifting mechanism.

>>14179207
I guess I goofed, it's 5 doors, the 4 door fiesta sedan is an abomination imo.

I don't think I would buy a 2 door Fiesta unless it was the only option for a Fiesta RS. (I've heard rumours it's coming out of Cologne, as North American/4dr Fiesta production is leaving Mexico shortly for Thailand)
>>
>>14177720
>Not sure what kinda numbers people are making on the twins after some tuning.

Depends what you spend, a decent map and a few bolt ons will gain 10-15hp at the expense of the front cat, this also give a big improvement in the mid range, Forced induction will set you back more and take you up to 300-320 when you hit the limit of the main injectors, you can fudge around it a bit with the secondary injectors but that way leads to big problems, if you want more than that you can hit 450 whp on stock internals reliably with decompression plates and better injectors / fuel pump, as with anything the sky is the limit if you have a fat enough wallet.
>>
>>14179228
I got that you meant 5 doors, I just don't understand why the US gets a 5 instead of the 3dr the rest of the world gets.
>>
>>14179248

Because the average America is fatter?
>>
>>14179248
It's because the North American Fiesta ST is built in Mexico and there is no 2 door platform here, the rest I believe are built in Cologne, Germany and is the 2-door only variant. Also where the Focus RS is being produced for the global market.
>>
>>14179246
So, on my Fiesta ST my power mods are:
Cat back exhaust
RAM Air Intake
FMIC
Cobb AP
E-tune

And I gained ~40whp, and 68 torque.

Get a Mountune MR230 kit for it, and do some weight reduction (spare tire, some carpet/mats, lightweight battery, replace front seats and remove rear ones).

That'll give you 230hp and 250lbs of torque in a car that weighs 25XX pounds. That's fucking crazy. And mountune kits don't void warranty.

Bigger down pipe is worthless with the stock turbo, the stock down pipe is also huge...

And good for you watching smoking tire? The numbers he claimed had the community figuring Cobb rigged the dyno somehow to get the numbers he did, there's no way he was putting down the power he claimed.

According to ~virtual dyno~ I was putting out 220whp/270tq, stock the fiesta is 197bhp/202tq.

That's only with the mp215 kit installed by an ase certified mechanic, the MR230 is like any other after market part maker.

Oh what a surprise. Supoohru brzfags shitting up /o/ with an incredible amount of asspain, wailing and crying on the floor. Your car is beyond gay, and at this point your love hate relationship with the MX5 is obsessive.

I'm not partial to either car but the brz is a shit vehicle. The interior is cheap plastic Walmart tier and the engine is a huge letdown in performance and reliability. The "boxer" engine at the end of the day is retarded and has gremlins.

Cry harder, it could have been better but it isn't and wasn't designed from the bottom up.

>is a toy
So the brz is a small toy dildo for sticking up your fucboi ass.

I'd get the 3.8 Gen Coupe instead of either.

Your guys hate for our cars blows me away. Enjoy your 91 POS 200sx

I agree with this guy

FRS/BRZ was a total let down and fail of a car.

keep in mind that most fiesta st drivers got rid of them quickly.

Source? I've seen a few people in the NA community sell, but not really as many as you might expect. The community is still growing every day.

I didn't say the miat sucked, I just chose the brz for the extra room and the hard top. The interior is nice compared to my brand new truck and the only thing I don't like about the brz is the lack of visability
>>
>>14176090
I prefer the BRZ. The Fiesta is fun, but I am just not a fan of FWD cars. I don't have kids, so I don't need more than 2 seats. I also don't like turbos, and the BRZ is an awesome looking car where as the Fiesta looks like shit and is a Ford

That being said, I owned a BRZ for a year and a half. I had way too much fun but not enough self control. Sold it and went back to a Jeep Wrangler
>>
>>14183798
Well, I'm talking mostly from UK experience so the different roads and more variety in fwd options might make the difference, a simple search in pistonheads will show just how many used 1 to 2 year old fiesta st's are for sale already. For what it's worth, it seems more related to it being tiring when your not on full attack (stiff suspension, squeaks).
>>
>>14184185
Ah that makes sense, the car has also been around for a few more generations in the UK as well.

The mk7.5 Fiesta ST is the only generation available in America so they haven't been passed around quite as much.

The car in that pic was tboned btw.
