Best Value Dollar For Dollar

Hands down the best car I have ever owned. Reliable, beautifully engineered, a true joy to drive. The engine delivers all the power one really needs, the transmission gets the power to the low profiles tires with shift throws that are short and close together. The suspension is stiff, but not uncomfortable, the car really becomes an extension of the driver
Highlights for me is the "simple" ergonomics, everything you need is close at hand, seat fit is tight. Steering rack ratios are such that you aren't spinning the wheel to get around corners. A true race car feel.
Would like to have seen a v6 in the car mated to a sequential paddle shift gear system. Hate the digital dash, needles please. roll hoops could stand to be another 5 inches taller. I'm 5'10 and would be dead in a roll over.
