The Z platform is too heavy to be debiggened for a 4-banger, and while it would be cool to see a little sporty RWD Renault, it just doesn't seem very.. Renault. Besides, they'd need to make a proper sporty Twingo first. And then a little RR roadster/coupe.

By the way, the Z now costs about the same as a BRZ so I don't know if there would be much room below anyway.
It's still a shame that the cheapest two RWD sport coupes from Japan is just the BRZ and 370Z.

I want MOAR.

(I left out the Miata, as I don't really like convertibles.)

Hmm, here the Z starts at 29K, the Subaru BRZ starts at 25K. They're within range of each other for sure, but I think in driving dynamics they're very different cars.
