Haven't been back in awhile and boy have I missed the fun.
Waited for the Supra. Hated the collaboration aspect. Car looks nothing like the FT-1 concept. No twin clutch is a killer also. ...

Look. The 4C is not for everyone. It's a small niche car. Obviously there is a small bunch of us crazy drivers that like the car. The Miata/FR-S/BRZ/86 makes more sense from a price/performance...

Yeah, the car just doesn't set up well for a manual. As with most turbos ... you really need to keep it on boil. The other issue is that you have to keep BOTH arms on the steering wheel. The car...

Caymans are everywhere. How tall are you? I'm 6 feet and also in my mid 50's. I fit fine in the 4c with a few inches to spare. The seat base can be adjusted (by the dealership). The...

I think that's everybody's wish, but it just wouldn't work with this car. The twin clutch rev matches and keeps the 21psi single turbo on boost when you need it. What's nice is that the twin clutch...

Yeah. The two must haves were the carbon fiber roof and the Acra exhaust. The sport exhaust (essentially no mufflers) is just too loud and it drones. The Acra is perfect. Loud, but no drone.

A car that sits in a garage for it's entire life (garage queens. Ferraris, etc) will probably have more maintenance issues than a car that has been properly exercised at a track.
