Hope I don't offend anyone but the Miata is more of a hairdressers car. Looks sporty but really is slow, isn't that comfortable, doesn't really excel at anything.



Civc SI VW '06 golf GTI are better comparisons, fast, fun, pratical, and comfortable.

I was thinking more of both of them as sporty/practical everyday vehicles for newer/younger people, with a large "cult" following, lots of modding, and amatuer racing.

Default 1970's Saab?

Geez, I already used that anology, I think. Moto Guzzi is the Saab of motorcycling.

Speaking as a Silverwing owner, you read my mind on that.

I heard they were cheap to maintain and run around a track though because they don't go through tires. I think it's the near 50/50 weight distribution and rear-wheel drive part that's responsible for that. I'm sure it helps that the car is underpowered. I think a WRX is a better way to go, but then I guess it isn't convertable...

The Mini of motorcycles would be the new Vespa GTS 250. It's very stylish, works great, and costs way more than it should.
