I have one. I'm 6'1 and average build. I have two kids. The whole family fits, no problem. I've had 4 full size adults in, no problem. It seems perfectly spacious to me, but I came from a Fiat Abarth, so what do I know. I fit 4 adults in the fiat a few times also. I don't understand why people think they need so much… » 3/10/15 9:04pm 3/10/15 9:04pm

I agree. Bahar had serious vision, and his vision got me excited about the future of Lotus. I never understood the hate. New management always finds reasons to villianize prior management. They have to justify their existence. This is just ho-hum. » 2/18/15 1:46am 2/18/15 1:46am

I think that you are thinking of it backwards. Currently only super-rich folk can make it to the big leagues, it is obscenely expensive to go through the ranks, even for the most talented. The super-rich folk will still be able to go through the ranks the traditional ways and spend their way into a seat, but now you… » 2/13/15 6:48pm 2/13/15 6:48pm

.... says someone who has never driven a miata on the track. As a former Miata owner, racer of many series, exotic owner, Exige owner, etc. I can vouch that the Miata is a unique proposition, and I'll be inline for this one. Lightweight beats power every time for fun factor, especially on the track. » 1/30/15 3:29pm 1/30/15 3:29pm

DSG's are in fact evolved sequential gearboxes, and really quite brilliant. What you're really asking is why we don't have sequential dog boxes, which would be brutal on the street. Dog boxes have straight cut gears that whine terribly and slam into gear like a kick in the nuts. » 1/21/15 11:05pm 1/21/15 11:05pm

The M3 has moved into a whole new category. I bought an E36 M3 new and a B5 S4 new. I just bought a new S3, and it was closer in price to what either the M3 or S4 would have been if they had tracked to inflation. ~$50k fully loaded, while the S4 has crept up half a category, and the M3 has stretched to a whole new… » 1/14/15 12:33am 1/14/15 12:33am

Why eat one hot dog, when you can eat five? Why wear one shirt, when you can wear five? Why have one wife, when you can have five? Why have piss in only one urinal, when you can piss in five? Why ask one question, when you can ask five? More is clearly always better. Next question. » 1/02/15 4:18pm 1/02/15 4:18pm

The same thing is happening with many iconic classics right now. Two that I've been following are Countach and Detomaso Mangusta prices. Both have shot up 300-400% in the last 18 months. Cars that were possibly in reach in 2012 are completely out of reach now. Countach prices shot up almost overnight. There are some… » 12/31/14 4:11pm 12/31/14 4:11pm
