Best Sports Car for the Money Hands Down!

I've had my Classica for over 3 years and 23,000 miles. It's very fast, compared to similar sports cars(do NOT compare it to a V-8 Mustang or Challenger, or Camero like some magazines do-get real!). I had a Miata years ago and drove a new one before I drove the Spider. No comparrison in handling or performance. When the turbo kicks in, you're off and running. I'd NOT buy one with automatic, however, turbos and automatics are a PIA. Yes, it's tight if you're over weight or too tall. The 6 speed manual is a dream and it corners like a B-outa-H! The styling is awesome and the top goes up and down like a dream. Yes, you can spend more money for a more expensive sports car, but why?? Fiat finally got things right!

Super fun!!!

Very speedy. Really fun to drive in the auto-manual mode. You truly can not be in a bad mood when driving this car, makes me smile everytime!

This is my first convertible.

This car handles nicely . Very responsive. Reasonable quiet with top up. Really nice sound system. It’s a sharp looking roadster and keeps up nicely on a 70 mph highway. Smile in every mile.
