I agree, but beyond "forcing" something to work, a car that is totally impractical for one person perfectly suits another person's situation, and that can change drastically over time for any individual.......
On the topic of practicality, you can force anything to work. IMHO this car's practicality is a touch higher than a motorcycle or a Slingshot. There are some idiosyncrasies that you will either find it charming or irksome overtime. I am finding bothering me is accessing the trunk when the top is down. It's quite the circus for something so benign.
I assume with the trunk you are referring to the need to lift the top out partially to put something under it, and this is definitely a nuisance that we have been complaining about for almost 16 years, although 99% of the time it makes no difference whatsoever.
