This car has been a sheer joy to own since I bought it in September. Unless it's snowing I find a way to drive it. Acceleration is brisk once the turbo kicks in (3500 rpm +)and torque seems good throughout. Shifting is effortless and handling is wonderful - basically an adult go-cart (brakes great too). Gas mileage has been surprisingly good, averaging 24- 27 mpg with some hard acceleration in combined driving. It is a stiff car,which should be the case for a pure sports car. This car is not meant for quiet and well cushioned highway driving, but is a great way to commute to work and for modest shopping loads. I've been able to get several bags of groceries and gym bag to fit.
Acceleration boost once the turbo kicks in, and the handling which is flawless between the suspension and the Toyo performance tires.
I'd love to see this car drop to mid 5's on 0-60, but that's really just for bragging - it's a hoot to drive as is. A touch more leg room would be great (I'm 6', and this is close to the room limit).
