Just the look of the Interior Picture above with the gated gearbox and shifter and the lovely color interior and the overall character of the Car are worth all the Accolades! The enjoyment and pleasure is in the driving experience of the car not necessarily it’s speed and 0-60 time etc etc., but the sound of that wonderful engine revving to 8500, and the handling of the chassis etc etc., is a complete experience of a well sorted one!! I personally have owned 3 Miata’s and love them, and of course they are not fast at all, but handle great, but the overall pleasure of driving them on our twisty mountain roads is really fun! I used to Finance classic Cars back in England and have driven many exotics i.e. XKE, Aston Martin DBS V8, Three Lotus’, Porsches, and have been driven in a Ferrari Dino and a Daimler Dar (SP250) etc etc to name some, and yes I liked them all, but so is my naturally aspirated NC Miata with just 180hp which rev’s to 7200rpm and handles great (I have made a few modifications to make it breath better and had the engine mapped for extra torque and hp over stock). But a really great affordable real Sportscar. Many modern sportscars are WAY over powered and as such it is impossible to ever use that power safely in a road situation, and how often are you going to the track to really exploit it’s power and handling potential?
