A bit off-topic, but I recently drove a 2013 Mustang GT (with Recaros & track package) and a Scion FRS.
The GT has a wonderful, rev-happy engine, but the transmission, suspension, steering, and interior are garbage. The car just felt jittery and numb at the same time.
OTOH, the FRS has less than half the HP, but felt adequate. The steering & suspension were great, and it feels much faster than its numbers. Interior-wise, the seats and steering wheel are nice, but the rest are low-rent (but still nicer than the GT).
Try out a FRS/BRZ. You might be hooked.
