I've never even sat in a classic bare-bone roaster before and I'm not one to rough it - I had to get the Grand Touring trim so I'd still have my automatic climate control, adaptive headlights, premium audio, CarPlay, additional sound insulation, etc.Back to the Miata, it’s a classic bare-bones roadster with near zero tech and conveniences, just like the British roadsters were (no A/C, wind-up manual windows, and the funky pop-up headlights and other things that make the first generation Miata so fun and full of character.
I've now put just over 3,000 miles in 15 months on the Miata and I'm still in love with it, but I'm anxious to test the new BRZ now that the 2.4L has been confirmed. I suspect one of those will become the next garage queen.As an enthusiast, I still want more power out of it and they are now working on the next gen BRZ with rumors of the Toyo/Sub partnership going with the new 2.4L boxer in the Ascent, Legacy, and Outback. That should give the bump in power the car needs.
Just seeing this. Yeah, it’s between the new BRZ and the next gen STI for me. Will decide between the two once the STi is released. The first year new BRZ will not have a performance pack option and it’s really worth it. Sachs dampers, Brembo calipers and Lighter aluminum alloy wheels for $1195. Hopefully year 2 they offer it. They fixed the issues with the old one. Torque is available much lower in the powerband and more power through the rev range so it just linear to 7k rpm’s. Torque dip is there but they largely fixed it. Love the looks and the cabin is just updated. The BRZ remains a great option for 6 footers. Awesome cabin for us tall folks. Really excited to drive it. All the material I’ve read and watched it looks like they’ve corrected every issue I had with it. Finally some new affordable performance cars coming out.I've now put just over 3,000 miles in 15 months on the Miata and I'm still in love with it, but I'm anxious to test the new BRZ now that the 2.4L has been confirmed.

Everyone should be lucky enough to have a garage queen once in their lives. It's fine, change oil annually, battery maintainer, and other fluids such as coolant after 5 years due to electrolysis, your allowed. And it's much safer than that motorcycle/scooter stuff you were doing a few years back...I've now put 3,300 very enjoyable miles on the Miata since October 2019. Last month, I decided to sell it to Carvana because of their very generous offer due to current market conditions. I had a pick up scheduled, but couldn't go through with it.
I'm not as excited about the 2022 BRZ as I had hoped. I'll still drive one, but I'll probably end up keeping the Miata.
