While they're certainly impressive from a technological standpoint, they're in a price range I could never afford and performance wise they are so far removed from anything you'd ever get to use on the street. I feel like driving a hypercar on the street would be a chore as you'd constantly have to watch out not to simply shatter speedlimits with just a look at the throttle.
There's so many contrarian takes everywhere, always, that it's hard to have a genuine outsider opinion anymore.
I've had significantly more fun in a stock smog-era MGB than equally stock NA.

- I hate people who buy new sports cars to drive them 1000 miles a year (this probably isn't sacrilegious)
- I don't like Miatas, and I never want to own one (though I can respect them for what they are)

Clear coat is just a layer of paint with no pigment, so no, it's not already protecting the paint. It IS the paint. And many colors don't have a clear coat on them. (source: auto body and paint guy for a couple decades, as well as owning my own custom body shop). Clear coat doesn't protect from chips, or fading.
So that opinion isn't sacrilegious, just factually incorrect.
"Like a fine Detroit wine, this vehicle has aged to budgetary perfection"
1) Long road trips = comfortable car
2) Quick trips to hardware / home improvement / grocery store = *most of the time* in the comfy car
so then 1,000 is on low end, but still 20 miles a week!
