The base model Nissan 370Z starts at $40,978 in Canada and $33,120 in the US.
Subaru WRX: $32,495 Canada; $25,795 US
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution: $41,998 Canada; $34,695 US
Scion FR-S $25,990 in Canada; $24,995 US
Hyundai Genesis Coupe: $26,499 Canada; $24,250 US
Porsche Boxster: $56,500 Canada; $49,500 US
Lotus Elise: $64,990 Canada; $47,250 US
Chevrolet Camaro: $27,965 Canada; $23,345 US
Chevrolet Corvette: $60,050 Canada; $49,600 US
Ford Mustang: $23,999 Canada; $22,200 US
Chrysler Challenger: $26,995 Canada; $25,495 US
... etc. for hardtop base models. US–Canadian price differentials are big enough to drive a Hummer through.
If Mazda is aiming at a higher price, they'd better bring the "go" along with the show.
By the way, I had no idea the Challenger was priced so cheaply now. It's probably not selling that well, V6 or V8.
