Sweet, it's finally out. Been following your videos for a while now. Very informative and interesting to say the least. The bromance is strong in that last picture.

BRZnut 09-17-2014 09:04 PM

great video as always. Thanks for taking the time to do it!

Time to make some popcorn and enjoy this bad boy!

Lonewolf 09-17-2014 09:34 PM

Video is too long. Will watch when I get home tonight.

If I were driving, which car would have been faster? :D

thill 09-17-2014 10:34 PM

Really well done.. I love how honest you are about these cars (good and bad for both).

Look forward to the next installment.

Had an S2000, 350Z, and FR-S now. The S2000 is incredible, but for the price, I'll take the new, more practical car with a warranty. I doubt I'd ever buy a tank (350Z) again. It's hard to find a non-rodded/modded S2000 in good condition. Mine sure wasn't when I bought it. Overall I found the review biased but informative.

If you have to go forced induction on the FR-S to match the stock power of the S2K you lose much of the warranty advantage on the new car.

That said, I am with you on finding a clean S2K. I have been looking most of this year and they are few and far between. And many of them are well over $20K. But I agree with Dezoris and Turbowski that the S2K will hold its value much better long term.

Not trying to be nitpicky, but this comparison doesn't make much sense to me, to be honest. Why match hp figures and ignore all of the other differences? The FRS is lighter right off the bat, so that's going to give it a better power-to-weight ratio, and then you gave it light weight aftermarket wheels, coilovers, and a big brake kit versus a relatively stock S2000 (minus brake pads and tires). That's significant weight savings and a substantial handling improvement given to the FRS, while at the same time allowing it to have approximately 30lbs/ft more torque and a square tire setup, where as the S2000 is using the stock staggered setup, which will not turn in as well due to less front grip. Besides that, there seemed to be quite long stretches of straightaways, which obviously is going to benefit the car with a better power-to-weight and more torque. It seems like the outcome could have been easily predicted... and, realistically, it's not even close to an even comparison in terms of price or level of mods. *shrug*
