This is a purist's car: it does very
little, but what it does, it does
exceedingly well. It was meant to be a
fun car to drive at the expense of
practicality and amenities. That's
exactly what you get. There's no
flash, it's reliable, and it's as fun
as any car I have ever driven. It
won't blow the doors off of the other
cars on the road, but part of the
appeal is that it can be driven to it's
limits. A simply wonderful car.
It's fun (if that's a feature). Short
wheelbase, plenty of power, low center
of gravity, no power steering . . . it
rides like a gokart. Unbelievably fun.
The air conditioning/heater went out
twice on me. Lots of road noise,
especially if the cargo cover is out,
but these are small gripes.
