Previously had na and didnt think I would like the larger, heavier more powerful nc but love it for all those reasons. Rides more smoothly but still lets you feel the road both in your hands and on your seat. Will be making a few modifications , i.e lowering vehicle and changing muffler so it has roadster sound but that is about all. Still has the roadster feel with more luxury.

Unforgettable Ride — What i like the most about this is what i mention all this time the capacity of this convertible to handle the road at high speeds, and how safe i feel when i drive it. Many times i drove with my wife with me and she is amaze how constable it is to drive it anywhere.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Excellent handling curves, and grabs the road like no other car i had before

Cons: A couple of more inches on the inside will be perfect

Must Have "second" Car — I like the evolution on this car, would love to get rid of the roof storage and make it a bigger interior and maybe even up the interior luxury option so the car can look like the classy roadster that it is.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: super fun roadster

Cons: hard suspension and not a car for distance travel unless your under30 and fit

A Must-have For Many Racers, A Beautiful Cruiser For Less-competitive People. —

I purchased this car partially on a whim and partially to get out of a Ford with serious electrical problems. Performance-wise, the motor is extremely potent for an unmodified 4-cylinder, pushing enough power to light up both tires on a rapid launch on dry pavement. The car loves corners like soul mates, happily throwing in with a responsive wheel, and the slight oversteer is very easy to control as you apex through it. Exterior is beautiful, and turns heads when cruising through town. Interior is purely plastic, but that is unimportant the moment you drop the top. Cost-wise, the car is quite a bit more than what I'm used to- it requires 91-octane minimum, but I've had no problem averaging 30 MPG when I can keep my foot off the floor. This car is truly fun, but the family man (which I am not one, fortunately) may be unhappy about the lack of a back seat, or the somewhat-limited visibility when the top is up. This is not a family car, but if you don't have need for much cargo space or can afford a second car, this one will prove quite reliable for that lingerie-clad mistress of a car, whether you autocross, road race, or simply want something fun and sexy to run around town. (Ignore the other racers that scoff at its "cute" look, they are just jealous.)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, very nimble, surprisingly inexpensive.

Cons: Some girls call it "cute" instead of sexy, and sportscar insurance rates.
