Jason Camissa’s thoughts (and drive) on the Carmudgeon Podcast would seem to say that the Model S has serious competition from what is largely ex-Tesla engineers and a more mature and improved design in Lucid.

Gotta widen the search radius. 2 years into ownership of a manual E91, its fun but it certainly is not a 1 series in nimbleness. Read more

Logged 500 miles in the fun car earlier this month on backroads - revisited the same area with the comfy car for more foods and sightseeing. Read more

I hope you have a chance to own one! If you find a fair climate example (no rust or corrosion) the maintenance is not as scary as advertised. Yes it is hitting an age where bushings/bearings/belts will need refreshing. Read more

Sad to see it go but I love that it is staying in the family and you are sampling the American version of the german super sedan. Looking forward to updates. Read more

I aspire to be this guy in the next ten years... not sure our gravy train is stout enough to support an unobtanium hot rod Porsche.

This explains why my car purchases are moving backwards in years, all bought in the past 5 years. 2015 -> 2011 -> 2007 -> 1999

It is an excellent car still and my response was in the realm of splitting hairs. I wish I had given a stock example a go - it’s always hard to tell if modifications fundamentally alter a car in a positive or negative direction without a baseline.

Agreed. Embarrassed to admit that after 3.5 years of FRS ownership. In 2013 when I purchased that I was not a fan of the NC generation Miata and the older ones lacked any degree of practicality - what I measure as carrying hockey gear or luggage for a couple’s weekend getaway.

I found Shift (a CA Carvana alternative) offered well over Carmax and dealerships. Sold our Mazda3 to Shift and the entire process took less than an hour!

I found the same thing to be true! Drove a nicely modified S2000 a friend had and while it could sure scoot, it did not feel fun. Now, even a stock Miata manages to engage the driver and paint a grin on my face.
