very fast, i had a porsche boxster and there is no match, i like the way the boxster handle the corners, but this car is as good but with a lot more power, if you are a tall person this car is not for you, i believe 6' and under, i don't like that the cd player is in the trunk and there is a casette player in the front, i don't believe that too many people use them anymore, if you run over a hole the cd player will skip. great car.
I went to a dealership in Wilmington, and luckily they had the style and importantly the motor combination I wanted. They took my for a drive in this car. I test drove it to the max. I was totaly impressed.I have had 2 Corvettes in my life time and no comparison. The supercharged engine, the sheer response of power and handling. Far greater then any car I have every owned.The immediate acceleration from a dead stop is beyond belief. The selling point is driving one. You're hooked. They went to great effort to get the color and options I wanted. My experience is, this is the best sports car I have ever owned. It's just fun, every time you get behind the wheel
This is an exceptional car in every respect. In my opinion it's a future classic (only c.4,300made most in US) & has better looks than the latest SLK AMG's and it's rarer & faster. It's a pleasure to drive around town so much so that even my mum could drive it without knowing what it's capable of. It's a wolf in sheep's clothing and will decimate most challengers. When you want power it launches you as if you're strapped to a rocket and that power still keeps coming until your nerve or the road runs out.
Car accelerates like crazy and is fun to drive. Great open air driving and nice exhaust sounds. Wish the car had a few more features or amenities. Not built for comfort or gadgets. Main problems - dealer would never completely fix brake squeak. Blinker light housing fell out of socket twice. Ride is cramped and visibility is marginal. Great engine offset by poor dealer service. On the one hand the car performs great - but don't you expect great service and some more features for 56K? One last thing - car handles very poorly in the rain, even below 60 mph. I had a CLK with Z-rated Michelins that performed better than these Continentals.
