I think I've figured out what I want. Needs: Sporty. Fleet-footed. Seats Four/four door a plus. Style Points count. Great Interior $25K price range. After reviewing the likes of S4, STi/WRX, Legacy, Mustang, I'm focusing my search here: 2004 Mazda RX8. Plusses: Seats Four comfortably - Four door, too! Cutting-edge styling. Can buy with low/no miles. Mazda reliability. Exceptional Handling (for a 'big' car...not in exactly the same league as my miata) Rear Wheel Drive 6 Sp Transmission VERY nice interior Minuses: Low Torque (have to really wring it out to get power, hence 9k rpm redline) Not a Drag Racer (doesn't always FEEL fast) Expensive to MAKE fast, should I ever desire. (Only real option is forced induction - figure $3500+ for 50-80hp) Attention Getter - perhaps from Cops, too! So...SOMEBODY buy my miata!!
