Jointly developed with Toyota, the rear-wheel-drive BRZ features a 200-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder teamed with a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. It has super-agile handling and balance at its limits. In corners the car turns in promptly with virtually no body lean. The steering is well weighted, with decent feedback.

Thank you, gods of driving by An MSN Autos Consumer on 06/07/2012.
Pros: This car provides 90%+ of the performance and handling of a Porsche Cayman, widely regarded as the finest handling car made, for 50% or less of the price. Fantastic to drive, and far better looking in the flesh. It's 10 inches shorter and 500 lbs lighter and 4 inches lower than my present BMW 3 series. It looks far more expensive than it is.
Cons: Could use a little more mid-range grunt. If I buy one, I intend to put on a good cold air intake imnediately.
Overall review: Run, don't walk to your nearest Subaru dealer - they're only bringing 5,000 into the US the first year.
