Good article He mentions manual transmission versus auto with paddle shift. He doesn't elaborate on his comment.. I understand it but when your going to be stuck in LA traffic half the time an auto transmission just makes sense...

You either buy the Manual for the 10% of the time you can use it, or buy the automatic for the 90% of the time you wish you had it.

Yeah WTF. The "wimpy imitation sports car" Supra Turbo soundly beated the "real sports cars" known as the 512 Testarossa and the 911 Turbo in R&T's handling tests.

Automobile magazine has a first drive up of the BRZ:

http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2596

Generally a rave but they knock the car on one characteristic I've been concerned about - steering feel from the fully electric-assisted rack.
