Would it be cheaper to build? Material cost isnít what drives cost, itís time on the assembly line first and foremost. Bolting in the rear seat belts and seats probably didnít take any longer than...

The GR86/BRZ2 has 22 ft*lbs more torque though. Considering the S2000 has 9 horsepower more, I think this will all come down to gearing.
