    "I could see the Scion FR-S (and Subaru BRZ) being an ideal car for a newly-minted parent coming from a Miata or S2000, or perhaps needing to retire an aging Integra or RSX, but still looking for that thrill."

    Exactly. My Miata still works with one kid in a pinch, but when the second comes around I hope to replace it with an FRS.

    And I could downsize my G35 sedan when its ready for replacement, and my boy has grown into a booster seat...nice!

    when i was a kid i had to deal with a 91 grand-am coupe until i was 10 and then my dad got a daewoo hatchback. if i got this car and put my kid in the backseat he still wouldent even know the MEANING of the word cramped. that being said the first time i saw this car in person i immediately put it on the would-not-own list because it is downright diminuative and although it is a "drivers car" it is stile S-L-O-W i would rather have a v6 mustang or something similar and it would post similer numbers around a track. i think the frs/brz is more of a 2 seater with a backseat thrown in for lower insurance prices.

    A first-time parent has enough stress already. Trying to fit a carseat in THAT is going to be tough at best. Young couple with a small puppy maybe ...
