1. 2013 Subaru BRZ and the Scion FR-S
For once all of the hype surrounding the release of a new car model did not result in utter disappointment. Something magical happened when Subaru and Toyota got together and made a car. With the mechanicals from Subaru and the sleek styling from Toyota, what you get is an incredibly fun-to-drive rear-wheel-drive coupe that does not cost $40,000 or more. Sure, the car’s flat four engine only pushes out 200 horsepower and 150 pound-feet of torque, but the its incredible balance and road handling quickly become addictive. Plus there are already tuning shops that have produced some decent superchargers and turbochargers for the BRZ/FR-S to boost power into the stratosphere if you so desire.
