Sorry about the thread hijack, but, I always like the look of the Honda S2000, so of course, they stop making them..

If it's truly about the driving, then get a F-150, a trailer and real race car. Keep it on the track.

Even with moderately powered cars, it's super easy to loose your license. Not to mention how frustrating sports cars are in traffic. And when you own a sports car there's ALWAYS someone holding you up.

I'd also be afraid to park a $100K car. Door dings are bad enough to deal with, but on a $100,000K car..... it would boil my blood.

Since I would never buy any British car again...that crosses off the Jag....
I am a believer that England has warm beer for a reason...and now I know why.

A Slavak, German Porche? sounds good.

A Chevy product?

They handle well.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I've been out of the loop for some time. I don't know what the first year of the new generation model is. It's probably inevitable to have gremlins such as rattles with the first year of a new generation model. I guess how much of an issue that is depends on how long you'll keep it. If for a long time, I say wait for the second year.

I would select a Cayman or a CPO 911, since the Corvette is a Corvette, which is fine for those who like them, just not my cup of tea. Full disclosure, I was raised by a father who always had at least one Porsche in the garage, so I am most familiar with them, both as a driver and owner. The Corvette is fine, but I get very tired of them, and the little annoyances, such as the creaks and rattles which I have noticed when in them on a couple of occasions lately. I would need to reserve judgment on the latest iteration with respect to long-term durability, but I cannot get past the rear end design, though the interior has improved.

The F-Type is nice, but not that exclusive, at least not in my area. It's very much driven by the tennis ladies at the club and lunch set, that I have noticed, no matter how capable a vehicle it may be. It could be different in your local area, however.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

Same here, and that's the deal-breaker for me. I don't care for a lot of new design cues but I could overlook them if it weren't for the astonishingly hideous rear end.

Also a nicely kept low-mileage 2nd Gen/Face lifted 2002-2005 Acura NSX would be fun and would leave the op with a nice reliable Mid-engine sports car that would get some looks but still not be over the top but heck of enjoyable car to drive on weekends.

also a Audi R8 with the 5.2 FSI V-10 from the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 would be a fun enjoyable car as well OP IMO

I notice a ton of F types and Corvettes in my area. Honestly probably more F types.

Oddly I think the Cayman would be the most rare in my area.
