At the end of the day, we’re all a little bit David Tracy. We have a hammer. We see everything else as a nail.

Arrivederci posed a question a few days ago about the best car to replace his BRZ at a couple different price points.

Especially since one of his requirements was 4+ doors, my hammer came up.


No, not my giant old framing hammer. The figurative one.

In its day the E36 M3 wasn’t extolled as a particularly light car, but in hindsight I can’t think of a lighter RWD sedan built in the last twenty years (most sources claim 3175 lbs, sedan or coupe).

Maybe an RX-8, which is 60-100 lbs lighter - but I’m not totally sold on counting it as a “sedan.”


Anyone have any other suggestions?
