They must have asked some primary school hot wheels enthusiasts what styling cues to go with and then used every single suggestion. It's some serious over design.

I agree, partially.

I think the front end looks pretty good, but mostly because it looks like a Ferrari.

I think the rear end is awful. Really, really, awful. It looks like a Camaro rear-end on steroids, in a bad way. BARF

I wouldn't go so far as to call it ugly, but it has lost a lot of the Corvette character. If you removed all the badges, I would find it easy to believe it was from Ferrari or Lambo or someone else. It's too "generic supercar" for my tastes.

Agree with the "Hot Wheels" styling cues comment as well. It's just too over the top.


Scrappy, buy the time this car is something I can afford, I'll be 75, and have no more interest in a car like it.

I am sorry to hear about your (A) abject poverty and/or (B) serious misallocation of resources - like having a family or a home or retirement savings or other frivilous non-necessesities.

Too much Cadillac design for me, front and interior do impress me.

I'm sorry to hear about your gross elitism. A good 70% of america couldn't afford this car, even used.

I DO agree it offers GREAT price to performance ratio though.

Haha, well I guess I missed the joke.

I don't think anyone who has a toy car like a turbo miata is *poor*, but then again - that depends on your definition of poor.

OTOH I think most of us here are cheap, lol.
