Our obsession with everything new and cutting-edge is a very damaging one, simply because it limits our horizon in so many ways. For instance, why would you buy a Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ/Scion FRS when there are two perfectly good (older) sports cars that share all the right ingredients – front engine, rear wheel drive and excellent dynamics?
The two models I’m talking about are the smooth Mazda RX-8 (find out all you need to know about it here) and the screaming Honda S2000, which is my personal favorite, because I still think it looks good and sounds even better. All three cars were pitted against one another by Everyday Driver, and in the end a winner was chosen.
We won’t spoil it for you, and we encourage you to scroll down, click play and see for yourself. Besides, watching sports cars being driven around the way they were intended to is always a good way to pass the time – here you have 17 minutes’ worth of footage to help you make up your mind about which is best.
As always, don’t be shy to tell us what you think about the cars and which one you would choose for your ride.
