Three reasons for me:

1. Track days are far cheaper with Miata-size tires and brakes vs. M3
2. Looking for a sub 10 lb/whp weight-to-power ratio, and it's waaay cheaper Miata vs. M3
3. My girlfriend and I took the roomate's Miata out for a cruise a couple times last summer, and it was a beautiful thing.

Great track day car.
Don't feel guilty putting miles on it.
Turbo'd power to weight is fantastic and affordable.
Going topless.
Reliable, good mileage, blah blah blah...

All reason's for getting it. Reason to keep it...

It's a car you feel connected to. You know exactly what it's doing and what it's going to do. Too many "sports" cars simply isolate you too much - numb steering - harsh breakaway - poor visibility - rubbery shifter - etc.

Bought mine becouse its a great handling little car. The GF absolutely loves it, but on the other hand, she didn't complain a bit about my last car, wich was practically solid, full track suspension, group A rally engine mounts and the like Miatas are comfortable

Test drove it and loved it. Went to test drive a mustang vert. They had an MSM in the show room and I was sitting in it waiting for the guy to get the keys to the mustang. I noticed...I FIT! then I noticed it was turbo charged....didn't know they ever came in a turbo. So I decided to take it for a spin. It was fun as hell! FYI, everyone that drives a mustang is not a redneck. I have an 87 GT (608 rwhp).... git some vern.

I bought it because it was cheap, rwd, trackable, and reliable. Nothing like going from a $44k TTcoupe to a $1600, 18-year old car that is faster and more reliable.

Its also a lot easier to visibly flip-off people when the tizzop is drizzoped. Its also good for hollering at bitches...and by bitches I mean dudes.
