2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I have driven Porsches, Lotuses, Ferraris, and once a Maserati, thus I know what it takes to be a good sports car. Overall, the Spyder is my first choice. Why? No, my main reason in not the price, though it helps. The reason is the overall ride and the unique driving experience the Spyder provides. The Spyder puts the Boxster to shame. The interior puts cheaper Lotuses to shame. The exterior provides an aggressive that screams I'm fast. I notice I get a lot less challenges from other drivers on the road, a lot less than my Camaro Z-28. This car is breath taking and gives a pleasurable experience that equals some Ferraris. If you want a sports car buy this one.
Exterior (can't keep the women away!). acceleration (wheee!), dependibility (never broken down), price (can't believe it's this cheap).
More horsepower. Though adequate, could easily be @ Ferrari speeds with 200 + HP.
