In the world of “more is better”, it was the only car in the market that was distilled down to just the essence of driving enjoyment. (It also ruined me forever since it made every other car feel like a land yacht.)
I love the nimbleness afforded by the absences of unnecessary weight. The supercharger scream as I rev it to 8,500RPM is intoxicating. The elegant simplicity of the chassis, the suspension, and other technical details is always a treat to look at.
My favorite driving spot? The twisty back roads of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
