Think about a year ago over 900,000 had been sold world wide since 1990. They were the first and are still being made. Huge aftermarket support, simple to work on, high fun factor. Fairly cheap new, really cheap used, 150,000 mile car is not out of the norm. If you use one to race you ball it up, no need to worry there are plenty more where that one came from to start over with.HATERS! "The Miata is superior in every way" (taken from the comments column.) Are you freakin' kidding me??
I'd have to disagree with this one. Bob Lutz was pushing for an affordable two seater roadster back in the 80s, with the Ghia Barchetta at Ford of Europe, which was offered to Mazda. Mazda turned it down but recognized the importance of a two-seater in the marketplace and it's value as a halo vehicle (something Mazda was looking for).Don't have to like a Miata but should respect what Mazda did, had they not built it most likely this forum and our cars would not be here.
I agree. But again, it's the usual case of poor advertising from GM.I always thought that the Solstice was Pontiac's brand "extention" and the GTO was their actual "halo" car. It seems to me that I've met more Solstice first time Pontiac owners than true Pontiac loyalists.
