A perfect blend of everything I want in a car


Minor interior rattles.

Windshield washer nozzle failure.

Paint flaw on fender.

General Comments:

Fabulously fun to drive. Acceleration that takes your breath away (literally).

Looks wonderful parked or flying along the highway; hardtop, soft-top or no top.

Interior design is great.

I love this car and will not part with it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
