Did anyone think the BRZ would be an unstoppable track monster against cars with better power/weight ratios? I'm willing to bet it does very well in its own class in Solo II, if nothing else.
Don't forget how every ft86 fanboy was saying that it would be the ideal track car. Or that it was a purchase for people who did weekend track days. Or some other crap like that.
Now that we all know that it's as slow as I initially suspected, the goal posts have moved. It's now the superior "canyon"/"twisty road"/"non-competitive fast driving" choice.
