Took me a while to find out dam specs and put this together. These are all the manual transmission version. RWD. I'll look for other discontinued RWD specs and maybe even throw in some FWD coupes. Did I miss any other RWD performance cars???

surprised no one mentioned the 2013 Nissan 200sx.

a Nissan 200sx concept was released and once it's out I bet it will be some serious competition for the subaru BRZ.

cars like Mustangs, Camaro's, Infiniti G37, Hyundai Genesis 3.8 are at a whole different level and shouldn't be considered competition for the BRZ, the BRZ was never intended to compete against them.

Never heard of the 2 coupe. I know they are thinking about the new RSX.

The G37 and mustang arent direct competitors but it is good to know how they compare. FR orientation.
