The stock TorSen LSD is 4.1.
The clutch pack LSD is 4.3

I would have preferred a hatcback style trunk tough (on the coupe).
Over that I would take a more practical hatchback style GT86.

surprised the 'purists' that cry about the car being 'ruined' haven't shown up in the thread yet.

I say give the people more options.

Yeah, I'm burned out on convertibles. My last three cars were soft tops.

Here I am! THEY'RE RUINING THIS CAR!!!

But seriously, zero f#%ks given about a convertible. Go ahead and build it; I don't have to buy it and I won't buy it!

I think the mx5 might be the better deal because a vert will add about 5k to msrp.

I would not buy the convertible version of the FR-S but they should build it and sell it. Scion needs a convertible, even if it's $2k to 5k more. I am thinking they can make it about $3k more and sell every one of them that they can build.

I'd be more thrilled if they were bringing back the classic hatchback body we all know and love on the 86.
