Not made for long distance driving.

It is a nice looking car. Not as comfortable as I would like but hey, it's a sport car not a family sedan. The bucket seats are not comfortable for long distance trips. It's kind of slow off the line but once it hits about 3500 rpm, this thing can go. Like many other people, I would like a bit more torque in this puppy. It is nice on the freeway, only if you're not living in LA. I am just wondering what is the top speed on an automatic? If you are looking for a fun car to drive and want to be different then everyone else, this may be the car for you.
The controls on the steering wheel is very nice to have. I also love the sport package, it comes with 18 inch rims which give the car a nice look.
Please increase the torque and the horsepower for the automatic. Everything else is fine.
