It's weeks like this where one recognises how quickly time marches on - the BRZ and 86 twins have been with us for nearly seven years. That's a long time in car years. It's still a fresh car in my mind because people are - genuinely - still talking about it and still arguing about it.

The fact the BRZ's twin, the 86, was mentioned in the news so often during the same week, with the arrival of the Supra, still tells me it's a relevant car.

We don't often drive the BRZ because the 86 takes the lion's share of the co-production's sales - something in the order of nine to one. The people I talk to dismiss the car as a waste of time - what does the BRZ have that the 86 doesn't?
