    Felt like any racecar where you sit low and eye level with the door sills. Rear quarter visibility is pretty bad but outward visibility is fine. Maybe not so if you're really short.

I like my reviewers and journalists not to suffer from amnesia and to remember that factual statistics are not relative.
    By today's standards, yes. Even the latest version of the Elise is a lot heavier than it used to be!

    I just saw a 4C on the street. Turning left from PCH south to Torrance Blvd. east, by the Redondo Beach Pier. Of all things, it was BLACK! Why on earth would anyone buy such a beautiful new car in black??? Black hides the exterior styling lines. The only reason to buy a black car is if you are buying an ugly car . . .

    Black is OK if it's especially reflective. Then at least the scenery warps around its curves like the event horizon around a black hole. Pretty. Until they add black wheels and black tint. Then it becomes a featurless blob insulting the taste of witnesses and passerbys.

    Since we're on the subject, what' sup with people buying grey cars? What kind of creature prefers grey, the color of cloudy skies, pollution, and cateracts, over literally any other color? I'll never understand.

    And don't get me started on yellow cars.

    Virtually all sports cars look better in yellow than any other color. As long as it is the rich "fly yellow" Ferarri color, and not the washed out yellow that BMW was using a few years back . . .

    I was joking. My car is yellow. I didn't like it, originally, but it grew on me, and there is rarely any other yellow cars to compete with it for attention.
