There are other ways to induce oversteer. Changing sway bars, alignment, tire change, turning off nannies, etc. I wouldn't worry about it :) It's still a lightweight RWD car at the end of the day.

They are saying fall 2021 release so I suspect most car reviewers won't get their hands on one to drive until this summer. I am guessing they are still working out the bugs and final tune.

WRX dislikes were the stock tune. It has terrible rev hang and a non-linear throttle response. A tune fixes that but then you have to deal with warranty denial potential with Subaru.

It can be rough on bad pavement. Late 2017 and all 18 RS's have revised dampers that help. Even just some inexpensive springs will reduce the pogo effect of the RS, but if your sensitive to it and...

What about the new Hyundai Veloster N? Under $30K, good power and torque, not really a traditional 4 door, 6 speed manual, good handling. I'd take one over a Civic SI all day.

I can understand the coupe thing. The BRZ really is a fun little car you just have to decide if the lack of power will be an issue for you.

Keep in mind you can almost always negotiate price if they are asking MSRP or near online. BRZ is not new anymore, and I would never pay MSRP.

If you are looking for more power right out of the gate, along with good handling I would go STI, Focus RS, or Golf R. Also consider Mustang GT w/performance pack or a Camaro SS.

In all seriousness, I think it still looks good, I am just not sure it looks better than the previous gen. I do like the new wheels though.

Chevy, VW, Honda, are just several companies in recent years who have reduced weight in their cars while adding more tech (and usually increasing power).
