Overall:

Great features, top design and a good value dependent on mileage. I would compare it to BMW or Mercedes. Will retain value. A pleasure to drive.

Great Sporty Luxury Convertible — Easy to drive, nice looking, lots of luggage space, great mileage, good overall value if you are not the first owner, $75,000 car new that lost 50% of its value in 3 years. Fantastic value for the next owners as the car can give great service for over 100,000 miles and not likely loose much in value.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great looking, easy top down, comfortable, great mileage (22-25mpg) for a big V8 sports car, great trunk space (two full sets of golf clubs plus enough luggage room for a week trip).

Cons: I am surprised the value of the car has not held very well.  New it was $75,000 and now it is shown to have a $12,750 value.
