Review

Its obvious-fun car to drive. Needs more ummph off the line. High RPMs while fwy driving (4k@73mph) 6th gear should be OD. Economical (30mpg). Great build quality. Image?-everyone has an opinion when you buy this car ("mid-life crisis?" or gender specific pre-concieved notions as to ownership...could be regional?). Tight handling. Minimal trunk space. Useless cupholders. Roll bar should be option. Short throw shifter is A+. Overall great car. No regrets - Buy this car.

Favorite Features

Handling, quality of build, reliability. Throwback to British roadsters of yore, but will run to 200K. Simplicity of design. Ease of drop top. Glass rear window. Clutch and shifter. Min. wind buffet w/top down. Pass. airbag disable switch A+. Priced right for what you get.

Suggested Improvements

As noted: add hoop rollbar option, redesign placement of cupholder, deepen trunk, add grill to intake, add option for 40 more HP/factory turbo. Keep 'em rolling off the factory line.....
