Good write-up. One more minor quibble, though...the Boxster came out in 1997, not 1999.
See above, S8 is a great luxobarge.
I like it, but only someone who has solely driven Miatas would classify that as a luxobarge.
Abarth 500...? :O
I really like it. It is my second Infiniti (I had a G37s coupe before), and they are great cars.
