As one of the hottest entrants in 2012, the all-new Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ is likely to be the car that thrill seekers and purists will latch onto.
After all, it is one of the cheapest rear-wheel drive performance coupes on the market as we speak.
That being said, there are folks throwing down the cash and receiving their whips. And if you've followed my posts about modding before, you'll note I tend to follow the same theme: There is a RIGHT way to do things and a WRONG way.
So, when I saw that Autocar had recently taken delivery of its on "project 86" car I was intrigued to see where it went with it. Particularly since it will be competing with it and Steven Sutcliffe behind the wheel.
Now that means the Autocar project car has lost some weight, added a spoiler, had some suspension work and a new set of lightweight wheels.
I would say that would be a move in the RIGHT direction if you're going to the track, so, what do YOU think would be the WRONG way to take this vehicle?
The Toyota GT86 is such a fine piece of work on the Japanese company's behalf that we awarded it a rare-as-hen’s-teeth five-star verdict in a recent road test.
But there are always and means of making anything in life that little bit better, and in order to go forwards you often have to take one step backwards. And sometimes that step can be quite large.
Don’t fret, though, because once you turn the light, or should that be see the corner, or maybe it’s a combination of the two, things do tend to get better in life quite quickly. And when the recreation process is complete you will be able to reap the rewards of more than just a few hard days work, and this is how the result of your toils might look.
