That was a good article and the horsepower is very impressive especially for a 4 cylinder, I know it's a turbo but still impressive!

Thanks for that article. This further solidifies my desire to have one in my garage someday.

From the the video, I don't think it sounds Anything like a Subaru which many equate it to. I've owned a WRX and it doesn't sound anything like it. I actually like the way it sounds. It's a marvelous vehicle.

Thanks...pricey when loaded.

The comments were amusing too. So many haters...most of them are probably driving Civics with a cherry bomb muffler.

Found this review on the 718...nothing about a 7:42 on the Ring says hairdresser's car.

I like this guys evaluation of the 718. He does get it to sound like an STI. LOL
