No it's not an off the line drag car, if you want an off the line car, don't get FR-S or the 370Z, go with a mustang or some shit.

If you want an all around fun to drive, best handling, comfortable sports car, FR-S is the way to go. Its purely a true driving experience car.
Dont care for the domestic muscle cars so its import only. And nissan is known for high performance sports cars which is why id trust a 370z(punishment and performace wise).

The base model-all manual-5spd standard taco is all i need to feel like im 'one with the car' and enjoy the driving experience.

And like i said, turbo kits are a no-no so again i guess i should get a Z.

I didnt realize the fr-s was purely a car just to drive for fun and wasnt actually fast or luxurious.

I am a fan of the BRZ, so the Subaru would be my choice (over the Scion). People are getting 200whp out of a tune on E85 and a catback. That's pretty good for such a light car.

Straight line and cruising get the Z. My buddy ran 13.9 consistently with a 350z. He rides in my wife's fr-s from time to time and being a DRIVERS car it is much more fun...in turns. It kinda bores me taking off from a stop.

this, ^^^^^

I'm with Kodiak, i love my FR-S and the aftermarket is pretty big for a car thats been out for only a year or so

Nissan has no quality control.

The FR-S is better looking and better built. The cabin is small. The car is sexy.

We just got rid of a 350z... it was a good car, but had to be traded for a baby hauler.

That being said, here is my bias opinions:

The 350z is a pig, and I know the 370 wasn't trimmed down all that much, more of a power increase. A heavy, torquey pig. Ride quality is abysmal, but it does have fun power. It's more of a muscle car that can handle pretty well than a sports car.

The FR-S is built to compete with the Maita. A light weight, well balanced sports car (I should probably also mention that I still have a Miata). If I were to ever get rid of my Miata, it would be for a BR-Z. The FR-S cars are not overly powerful, but I bet if you put the same driver in both, on an auto cross course, the FR-S would give the Z all it could handle for competition.

They are two very different driving experiences. They only real way to know is by asking the seat of your pants. Test drive them both extensively.

As far as the Genesis is concerned: I drove one last summer and it felt A LOT like our 350z but with a little better ride quality.

At the end of the day its about the grin factor. Go drive them both at least twice. That will tell you which one to get. I would love either. I own a Suzuki tl1000s motorcycle. It is considered slow and heavy but I won't trade it for any other bike out there because of the "grin factor". I get giddly like a little school girl every time I drive it. That is what you are after and no one else can tell you which one will give you a bigger grin.

I would tend to agree with the guys saying the 370z would be a lot nicer. I bought a 2012 RS7 Scion TC and the interior of the FRS is almost identical. I sat in one a while back at the dealer and liked it but it was nothing special. Really regretted getting a TC and not spending 3k more on one. But my biggest regret was not just getting another Tacoma in the first place If you want to save money get the Scion, they are pretty cool.

Eh. Taco will continue to be DD and work vehicle. Atleast itll finally be in my name officially and i wont feel bad for sliding it into a tree or something while wheeling lol.
Il lift it up again one day without a doubt. But not until i get another car cause driving 5-8 hours in the taco when it had 33's flat out sucked lol.

IMHO I would get the FR-S. The 370 seems like its a car that some club going d-bag would drive (sorry, but thats my honest opinion). I test drove the BR-Z and loved it. Only reason I didnt get one is because I was saving up for a house. The FR-S is a better buy over both the 370 and the BR-Z. A new FR-S off the lot here runs about $26,500 with no options. A BR-Z is around 29K, but it comes stock with HIDs and touch screen Nav. MSRP on a base 370 is 33K. Bottom line, the FR-S is best bang for the buck, use all the money you saved on performance upgrades.

No sir, i dont mind being in a lil debt to get something modern and luxurious.

Please no fanboys in here.

Scion is just a hipster brand IMO.
Im now turned away from getting an fr-s after being informed at how sluggish they are unless you take em around corners.
And
Not gonna get a car JUST cause its a toyota.
