Subaru BRZ leaving so soon?

I never understood dealers not letting ppl test drive those cars. At Porsche they beg you to test drive their cars. Yet I wasn't able to test drive an STi?

Theyre pretty quick stock too. They will scoot through the 1/4 in mid 13's.

We looked at a new Sky Redline before buying the Z. Car was fun but seriously lacking on the interior. The car was comparable to the Z stock for stock but the inside as opposed to cost I could not get past. The Z was cheaper and nicer all the way around.

To be honest I drop a base model STI two or three weeks ago it only had like the shortshifter installed I think.

after the test drive I was ready to hand in my Z's keys.

now I still don't know what to get;

STI cuz AWD
or challenger SRT8 cuz POWER and V8 noise but it's RWD plus it has an AT

What else am I going to get a beamer or grandpa mercedes. there is literally nothing interesting to me other than murican or something like the ST/evo. plus as if the Z isn't boy racer/ricer material.

not many interesting cars out there after all the emissions/fuel economy bullcrap happened.

atleast I don't want racing stripes combined with 22 inch rims while slammed as much as possible. also sideways hat.

to be more on topic. to this day I still haven't seen a BRZ on the road. the toyotas are plentifull.

I test drove my sti, and some porsches. When I was shopping for my vette, the salesman said I couldn't td without a credit check. He said, "it's not like you can just drive a 911". I said, "funny, I drove two last week, and they insisted that I drive the new boxster s while I was there."

Part of the Toyota/Subaru tie up with the Toybaru Hachi/BRZ was that Toyota were able to build and deliver 10 vehicles for every Subaru badged car that was built - they both come out of the same plant and get a Toyota or Subaru VIN, so it is not surprising that there are few BRZ's around.

I was surprised to read how few BRZ and FR-S cars were actually sold, especially given all the love the automotive press has give these cars. But I suppose no amount of hype will make up for an actual test drive. Great looking car, but I was thoroughly unimpressed when I drove it.
