Motor Authority FR-S first drive
If you've been looking for a real, inexpensive, incredibly good sports coupe you can live with every day and at the track on weekends, you've found it.

This was a really good article gents, check it out.

The six-speed manual gearbox is excellent, with very short, crisp shifts and almost zero play, in or out of gear. The six-speed automatic is less so, often hunting between gears at highway speeds. It's a bit slow to upshift in manual mode, and delays longer than necessary if a downshift is requested too high in the rev range, issuing a peeved little beep to let you know it's not going to obey right away. It's also a bit spartan for some inside; a fancy head unit with some limited apps functionality is coming, but it's basically just instruments, stereo, and climate control, ensconced in darkish plastic and soft-touch rubber stuff.
