Why does /o/ like to hate on this car?

It's the revival of the cheap 90s japanese sports car, and you fags are shitting on it. Haters should be ashamed, Do you want boring econoboxes?

Its not supposed to be the fastest car of the line, its an supposed to be an entry level sports car. 0-60 in the mid 6s in fine for what it is

That car is a boring econobox in a RWD platform you fool. It isn't cheap either. It's a meme car for tards like you or the best shit box commuter you can buy new. It is not even a decent entry level sports car by any metric. Buy a used car that doesn't suck you fool.

I shit you not when this car came out I went to a dealer and they wouldn't even let me test drive it because it is a "future collector car." The thing has fake fucking plastic vents for gods sake.

Yeah, you should buy a used car, but what are tomorrow's driving enthusiasts going to be lusting after for a good used platform? It's either a used modern muscle, a shite korean coupe, or a 40 year old 90's mobile.

No, the hate is calling it a proper sports car and comparing to, idk, anything with a real engine that doesn't blow. Faggots here and irl think just because it is RWD it isn't just as gay as a honda. For reference, see the miatafags.

for real?

where?
>>
>>14209230
Sports cars aren't defined by monstrous power numbers though. They CAN have them but it's not a requirement in the least.

I also appreciate that the base twins come with everything you need to have fun. You can up-option them, sure, but any car marketed as a sports car shouldn't have to option in an LSD. Looking at you Mazda and Nissan.

I don't think the FR-S or it's sister car would be my first choice if I went out and bought a new car tommorow, truth be told I'd be looking at a 13-14 Mustang GT most likely...but I do appreciate the toybaru for what it is. Silly that they didn't go with a better motor or at least a turbo setup? Sure, but it's not a deal breaker.
>>
So what IS a better RWD sporty coupe thats come out recently at the same ~30k pricepoint?
Since the gt86 is daily driveable, this excludes the new miata.

You just end up looking at muscles, don't you?
>>
>>14209244
>Sports cars aren't defined by monstrous power numbers though.

>>
>>14209273
What do the 90's have to do with it? That's been true for the better part of a century. Sports cars need to be able to handle, not necessarily haul ass in a straight line. If they can do both, great, but when your car does everything you pay for everything.

Face it, what you have stated hasn't been true for two decades. The BRZ is 20 years too late to matter. You can call it a sports car but that just makes it the slowest one availible with the worst bang for the buck.

It's a $26k, rwd, great handling, easily modable, reliable car. What's the problem? Because you can get a shitty car from 20 years ago for less?

lel silly kid, just because they use an specific kit on that build doesnt mean you need to follow that build step by step

you can buy a bolt on stroker kit for a VQ engine, that doesnt require any major work, you dont need to change the bore or get new cylinder liners if you are just changing the stroke

cosworth makes all these parts for the VQ and, as show by the links, they use an engine dyno to develop the parts

Let me run down the reasons why /o/ shits on the gt86

It's underpowered, its slow as fuck and expensive, like other anons said its a rwd camry/rwd wrx in all the wrong ways, you be better off buying any of the miatas, hell if you want a good sporty car, the nc is better than this half assed shit. Its pretty much a feels car.
>>
You guys are actually all so fucking autistic you should kill yourselves.

Anyone who hates the 86 for reason like cost or muscle car is a retard crying for others to not like things they like.

Shit like the RCF deserves hate because it's shit at what it does and more expensive and inferior than the competition (M4 etc).

What about the 86? It's fucking perfect at what it does. It's meant to be low powered, RWD, and fun to drive. If you want it to be fast then fuckin mod it yourself

You know that car that gets its dick sucked by everyone? The Cayman? It's literally the only car with a similar driving feel. 1 fucking second faster at 2.5x the cost and then maintenance. Is it worth?

Poorfags crying about the cost are literally the car "enthusiasts" that never buy shit which makes companies focus more on shitboxes for normies. If all you sour grape niggers actually paid for sports cars im sure it could be 20k because they have more sales to offset the R&D costs

Not reall a revival of 90's sports cars.
The 90's was all about turbos and rwd with I4's and I6's. This has some shitty na subaru engine with no potenial. It'd be a good base chassis for building up a nice engine to drop in their but why would you bother when you can just buy anything from the 90's for much cheaper and a mich more established aftermarket. One day when it's cheaper it'll be a good little shitbox, but at the moment it's just like a hardtop mx5 with a sideways fuck face engine lol ringlands

There were plenty of na Silvias/180sxs, Skylines, Supras, Zs, GTOs etc to go around. Plus Honda and muh vtec

FD was the only one to be turbo only
>>
>>14210113
And nobody buys them because they're shit and slow. If it wasn't for p plate laws here the only reason to buy one would be to do an engine swap and fuck off the shitty n/a cars.

Z's are slow as fuck n/a
Skylines are slower than camrys n/a
Supra's are slow and pigfat without that tt goodness
GTO's are a kekmobile
S chassis are probably the most modyfied cars in the world, and the only people who buy n/a are the ones who got stuck with a ka24 or couldn't afford a turbo.

If you're a enthusiast looking for a car you can comfortably daily, for affordably money, you really can't do better. (I really don't get the hot hatch thing.)

But if you're willing to compromise a bit on practicality, the ND Miata is a better car in every way, especially perceived quality and looks, for similar money. If you can give up on rear seats, then get the Miata.
>>

OP here honestly not trying to bait

I just don't see why people are holding this car to such a double standard. Everyone is complaining about it being to slow when its barely slower than the new miata, which everyone loves. Being slightly more slow for being more practical is a fair trade.

And if the twins had come out in the 90's, they'd probably weigh about 500 pounds less too. There's a reason everything has so much more power now than 20 years ago and it's not just because it's more fun. It's because it's necessary to get all that extra weight around. Everything is heavier. That's why something like the new Miata is so cool to see.

But the biggest reason /o/ shits on the toybaru so much is nothing technical, it's just because it's fun to do so. Just like making fun of mustangs or FWD as a whole. It elicits such immediate and volatile responses that it's just plain easy fun to do. The toybaru is an okay car but it's an amazing shitpost catalyst.

My Z pisses in your GT86'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 GT86. 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/Subaru fanboi. The 370z blew the GT86 am away in the feels dept, that's why I bought one instead.

The 370z has Jap class with Ferrari tier acceleration, and the handling characteristics you'd expect from a traditional two seat rwd coupe making 530+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.

The 86 got absolutely rave reviews. For me, that alone would make it worth a test drive, if I was in the market for that sort of thing. Sure it could be quicker, but my MR2 is considerably slower yet still more than fast enough to enjoy blatting down a country lane in.

Can't say it's exactly my carfu, but the 86 is alright.

That fucking torque hole at 3-5k.

My 1.7 makes more torque at any rpm than that, and the turbo doesn't even spool properly before 4.5krpm. So I'm.making more power off boost that that untuneable 12.x:1 compression shitheap.

With the exception of the miata and turbo 240sx's, cheap 90's sports cars sucked ass.

GT86 owners seem to think their cars are comparable with RX-7's, skylines or supra's when their more like base model 240sx's (which are pretty terrible cars).

And they think AE86's are comparable to skylines, RX-7's, supra's, 300zx's, evo's etc...
>>

the thing is we are comparing it to cars like RWD skylines, silvias, type R hondas, FC rx7s

That torque curve.

Seriously, fuck Subaru for for insisting on a shitty boxster engine with the biggest mid range torque dip ever. On top of that the boxster design mandated McPherson struts in front.

And as if hat wasn't enough they insist on not turbocharging it to not hurt STi sales.

Fuck Subaru.

>>
>>14218336
It's boxer, not boxster. And the mcpherson struts aren't so bad, it's just the stock positive camber that really hurts the car. Also, without that dip, enjoy fucking SHIT fuel economy. When you're going fast you won't be down that low anyway.

>...who will buy a used one when they are $5k.

you're out of your mind if you think these are being produced (or bought new) in the numbers that will drive down the used market in less than 10 years to be relevant.

until then, its not fucking cheap.

that said, i'd still have one if i didn't have to pay for it.

You are a complete retard. Do you try to feed your ass?

I may have forgotten that headers and/or some exhaust work is needed, but that and a tune will actually get rid of it. And in my opinion the car deserves headers anyway for the more traditional WRX rumble.

I want one but knowing that I'm going to have to drop several thousands in mods to get anything out of it is really killing it for me right now. I drive a slow car now. It's miserable 75% of the time. Also, C6 is dropping in price and competing for my heart.

Fuck off, poser.

If you actually cared about sports car you would get a big dick over the best thing you can drive, no the newest thing. You are just a status whore that wants to appear as a car enthusiast.

inb4, stupid pleb likes to work on his own car, I bought a new one so I don't have to.
>>
>>14221761
You don't want to be able to drive the car for many hundreds of thousands of miles? Buying new saves you from any previous owner abuse, you know 100% of the car's history. It'd also be nice to have something fun to daily drive while working on other cars that need to be in pieces for longer amounts of time. Currently driving a Ranger because foxbodies don't like winter salt, and will still be driving it come summer when I rip the engine out of it.

>>14209122
Not bad at all, but I like the IDEA of the car more than the car itself.

AKA it's a RWD econobox open to modification in a world where the genre is mostly dead and examples from the 80's and 90's are mostly modded and beaten to shit now. Kind of sad Toyota wasn't even willing to do it themselves despite it being an AE86 tribute and had to get Scoobydoo to do most of the heavy lifting.
>>
>>14221779
Buying new so you can soak up all that depreciation. My favorite.
>>
>>14221719

I remember about ten years ago equal length headers were being hyped as the best thing for Subaru engines thanks the scavenging effect. Now that they come EL stock, everyone wants UEL for the sound.

Just admit you have a preternatural urge to modify your vehicle and stop trying to rationalize it.
