I love this car. Candidates: M3, 911, S4. The highway is not a race track. No do I have to endure the harshness of my 996 to have neck breaking speed and a boat load of "cool factor". This thing is a serious wolf in sheeps clothing. The power, torque and hp, is amazing. The ride is plush, more body roll than my Porsche and BMW, even with the sport suspension, but I got over it quick enough. It is still well composed in the twisties. I am waiting for my H&R lowering springs to arrive and for $600 the body roll be gone. Cops don't even notice it. Great car! Of course it eats tires and gas, but a car with 386 ft #s of torque should!
The engine. Also very quiet for a cabriolet. Top down it is quieter than a 350Z with the top up.
The brakes are a little weak initially, but put your foot and it stops - about the same as my 5 series BMW but requires more pedal pressure. Needs more rubber, 18s with 265s would be a nice improvement.
