Incredible car from start to finish’

This car runs great and has never given me any issues. Drives smooth. Great sound system. The convertible top goes down quickly and is a blast to drive!


Fun, but definitely expensive to repair.

I enjoy it as long as I don’t have to repair it. Parts and service are definitely very expensive. Also you have to be careful when looking for a mechanic.


Most fun to drive of any car I owned

This car drives great, is very safe since it feels like it is glued to the, is fun to drive and has great performance. Fuel efficiency is very reasonable for this 6 cylinder sports car. If you want to go skiing... it has a special door from the trunk to the back seat, so the skis will fit.
