    This car isn't about 0-60 or 1/4 mile its all about handling and how the car feels. Its going to be a track/drift car and for anyone who wants to actually drive a car that you will feel connected with.

    Heres some more info.

    I get what you're saying, and I understand that concept. However, drifting and superb handling are only fun for so long, and than the slowness gets boring. I had a 97 Nissan 240SX with coilovers, and pretty much every suspension component you'd want for the track. It sure did handle amazing, but the stock motor put out 155 crank hp, and that car got boring pretty quickly, even with its superb handling.

    Personally i'd consider other options for $26k, pending test drives. I would certainly give the Genesis Coupe a chance to compete with FR-S / BRZ for my money.

    Don't forget, when this car was first mentioned a couple years ago, they were saying the pricing was supposed to be around $20k. Then after a year it crept up to $22-23k. Now that the cars are almost here, we're looking at $26k. Originally we were expecting the same 200hp number, so i'm not sure where all the price increases came from but it was disheartening to hear of such increases. This car for $20-23k would be worth it IMO.

    Fortunately i'm not in the market for a new RWD sports car, and if I were and did have $26k to spend, I would just buy a C6 Corvette over any of the above mentioned cars. 405hp + corvette heritage FTW :)
