Did any of you consider a Miata when you bought your car?
Thanks and great info.Considered Miata, but in 2013, it wasn't always the answer, and still isn't.
Miata is way too small to be practical as a DD - not fixable
Miata handling includes ridiculous amounts of body roll to work as intended from Mazda - fixable, but fundamentally changes the car
Miata soft top not welcome at some tracks - not easily fixable
Miata was underpowered in 2013 - fixable, but at a cost much higher than improving the 86 platform's "power issues"
Miata was old, ungainly design in 2013 - not fixable
FR-S/BRZ still look A LOT better than any Miata sold (then and now, subjective I know)
FR-S/BRZ could be easily modded to fix any perceived shortcomings (e.g. tires= grip, header= no more torque dip, tune & e-85 = power) where no amount of mods could fix all the above Miata issues (small size, dated styling, factory soft-top)
The 86 platform netted better cars for my needs and taste. It was an easy choice.
