Yes.

LOVED every second of my 2013 FRS but it was a hate relationship with the FA. Maybe this time around I'll learn to like it lol.

Haha yep I had a 350z and remembered the tire pressure readout. The display looked like it was from the 90s haha. Functional though.

One of my other cars uses a wheel speed based tpms system so obviously cant show individual tire pressures. Not sure how many cars use that kind of system though.

I had a 2013 BRZ. I did a lot of track days with it and it was my favorite car ever. I sold it for a 2018 STi that I tracked for a bunch of years. It was faster around the track but never as much fun. I sold that last year and got a '23 BRZ last month. I'm glad to be back in one! No regrets for sure! I have a track day coming up and I have no doubt it'll be as, or more, fun than my last one!

Sorry to hear that happened to your car OP. It would be a tough decision, I’d be tempted to go an old JDM sports car: S2000, DC2 Type R, EK9 Type R or an S15, the last 2 which are available in AUS. With older ones like these, they’re likely to hold their value or increase in value. So you can enjoy something fun and unique for a while, whilst not losing much money, provided you can get a good one.

Then the sensible side of me would want a new car with a warranty for around the same price, so for me it’d be a 2nd Gen BRZ/GR86 or a GR Yaris. The last one not available in the US.

From your point of view I’d toss up between a DC2 Type R, S2000 or 2nd Gen BRZ/GR86. I hope it works out, whatever decision you make.

Once you start daily driving any older car no matter how "collectable" it is they lose value. Part of what getting a "good" one is would be lower mileage. Start racking up miles and the value goes down. Not a big deal for a weekend toy or cruiser but significant if you are trying to maintain value.
Besides the list you provided are all very expensive in the US so buying newer in something more common makes far more sense for a DD.

The ONLY thing I miss about my S2000 is the top-down driving. I think everything else is executed better in the GR86, with a big emphasis on leg room. I think even the steering is more precise (but then we're comparing a 2001 to a 2023).

Yeah Im in the fortunate position where my car is a weekend toy, so youre right, it would come down to how much commuting in the car you do too.

I guess the older cars are from my late 20s, so a lot of nostalgia there, plus theyre pretty cool. I think the sensible side of me would win though, as Id probably buy a modern car.

A couple of years ago I got myself a 2008 Boxster (Limited Edition! Orange!) mainly because I never had a convertible before and I wanted to try one while I was still young enough to enjoy it. Last year I decided the top-down experience was worth keeping, but I couldn't justify having two fun cars, so the Hakone went bye bye. Now I'm thinking I'd drive my fun car more often and in more kinds of weather if it was a coupe. So I'm thinking the Boxster may go bye bye and I might get a second gen twin this time around.

Because I hate to see a resource (a car) be underutilized (like sitting under a cover all winter long), I've been trying to find a single vehicle that could do it all. Something that would satisfy my need for occasional large cargo load capability, all-weather driveability and decent long road trip ride comfort along with my want for something fun to drive with good handling and engine performance. Anything that comes close to checking all the boxes, like a Macan GTS or a Stelvio Quadrifoglio, is also quite spendy.

One of the strong arguments for me buying this instead of the other options (Cayman, M2) I considered is how much cheaper it is and its parts are. I won't feel bad putting miles on one of these and you won't feel bad exposing it to winter roads. Something Porsche or BMW would get left in the garage too often.

Had my BRZ for a year and 3 month and I would buy it again. Very nice balance of a daily driver and a fun car.

I agree on costs. Smiles per dollar the twins are tough to beat. But I have a 981 cayman and its seen plenty of salt this winter. Gives me an excuse to clean and detail it. Parking cars in the winter, other than extreme locations, is nonsense. These are not collector cars.

Also whats the point of buying the thing and not using it. What are they doing, saving it for the next owner? Nah I would rather use it up myself and enjoy every mile. I did not buy it to look at it sitting for months.

Sorry to hear about your FR-S... Hope you didn't get hurt in the accident. I also lost my FR-S in an accident on March 8th. Driver rear ended me on the freeway in L.A. rush hour traffic. I just picked up my 23' Trueno Blue GR86 yesterday and I'm loving it so far. I wish you luck on your hunt for a GR86.
