    not really all that comparable in my opinion.

    370z above the rest if i could pick to have one for free.

    if you're paying, it still may be worth the extra 10 grand for an extra 150 horses (new FRS vs 370z)

    350z can be found for cheap on craigslist.



    but this is like comparing an impreza to a C-class mercedes. both okay cars, but different classes.

    Not even a question if you don't factor in cost. If you do factor in cost I would go 350Z since you can get a decent used one now for 10-15K

    Question is what would u rather drive?

    I consider them to be in the same class... The frs and 370 are similarly priced and similar style wise.

    I just traded in a WRX for my Taco. Therefore my vote goes to the Scion/Subaru. It has the Miata MX-5 fun recipie. It's not fast, but the way it handles will put a smile on your face for sure!

    93-95 Mazda Rx-7 twin turbo. 2700 lbs-255HP--162 MPH. 25 years ahead of its time. Check aerodymic veiw from center of front bumper. I had 94 "you didnt see me, it didnt happen"--silver. 155 mph with throttle left handles like crazy, if you can drive. Prescription 7(RX-7). Man I miss that car. Raced an NSX one day flat out till 120 , it was dead heat.:stirthepot:

    My last Mazda was Mazdaspeed Protege', turbo 165 HP, best handling front wheel drive I ever drove, I would put one up against that Scion on a track, not scarrred. I get Toyo T1R's tires.

    Why is this not a poll choice?

    If I were to choose one to recieve for free it would definitely be the 370. The FR-S looks better in my opinion, but the 370 is just so much faster and comes from the brilliant minds behind the GT-R :D

    how do you start with GT-R, and end up saying Patrol FTMFW? :confused: they are completely different. and I would take a GT-R over the patrol fyi...
