** Awards and Recognition** Complete List for 86/FR-S/BRZ**

People were calling for a compiled list of awards and recognition so here it is. If you have any I have left off please drop them in, I am a huge forum junkie so it will be updated in a timely manner.

WTF U.S. News & Reports?

Interesting how FR-S is #1, Miata is #2, and BR-Z is #3. The twins should be joined at the hip!

And why do they get different ratings in the sub-categories? Does the front bumper, HIDs, Nav, and minor suspension differences knock the BR-Z down below the Miata?

Another reason why I don't trust the US News & Reports College Rankings.

someone heeded my words! thanks man this is awesome

edit: also, i can see why lots of people are getting annoyed w/ this car. if i bought a brand new 2013 mustang and all i heard from the news was a 2013 toyota car, i'd be indignant too.

This thread is GREAT! Thanks for stating it--I was losing track of all the awards. One or two more...

Vehicle Dynamics International 2012 'Car of the Year' (joint award Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ) and ‘Dynamicist of the Year’ (joint award Tetsuya Tada and Toshio Masuda):
http://www.vehicledynamicsinternatio...p?NewsID=38720

Also, don't know if race wins count, but there's the 2012 24 Hours Nurburgring race where two Toyota GT86s won first place in classes SP3 and V3...
