I stumbled on this classic Subaru BRZ (and Scion FR-S by the nature of their affinity) commercial and learned a few things that I didn’t know before. First is that if you want to impress your mom, you just need to bring home an attractively and nicely dressed lady, and second (probably of equal importance) is to impress your dad you need to drive a proper sports car. And the Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86 is probably the last proper sports car built by any manufacturer on the planet. I didn’t find any reasonably priced BRZs on my local craigslist, but I did find this 2013 Scion FR-S offered for $16,000 in Irvine, CA via craigslist.
Why is the BRZ/FR-S/GT86 the last sports car? Because it has the correct recipe. Hardtop with two doors, two seats plus two small seats in the back, reasonably powerful engine, manual gearbox, handling over speed, and no nonsense.
From the seller:

I’m selling my 2013 Scion FR-S and it’s still in great shape. I loved this car, it’s super fun to drive and very reliable!Only 73,484 miles for a car that’s almost 10 years old.
Only 1-owner (me) and I have a record of all maintenance.
Manual transmission, base-model version.
No major mechanical problems, recently had clutch disk and serpentine belt replaced.
Clean title, not salvaged
The passenger side window will eventually need a new motor, but it still works perfectly fine now.
It has some smalls scratches and bumps from being a daily-driver, but nothing crazy. I took a picture of the biggest dent on the front bumper.
Let me know if you are interested or have any questions!
