I saw this image on the net and thought it was a great way to show the actual size of the new FT-86 aka Scion FR-S aka Toyota GT86 aka the Subaru BR-Z.  Man, there are too many names for this car.

The FT86 is only 9.4 inches longer than the Mazda MX-5 Miata, yet it has 2 more seats and what appears to be a much longer wheelbase.

And for your Nissan heads out there, the S13 is 178 inches long, and the S14 is 177 inches long.

Sometimes I’m completely overwhelmed with jealousy… this is one of those moments.  I don’t know how they got permission to drift Mulholland Drive, but they did and it’s amazing.  I’ve always wanted to take my red car up into the mountains with stickers and all and just wreak havoc, but it will probably never happen.  I’ll add that one to my bucket list.  I can see it now – “Dying 80 year old man arrested for drifting his classic Nissan in the Glendora mountains.”
