      Miata is NOT always the answer.

      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.

      I prefer having an automatic as a daily driver.

      I think all modern supercars look the same.

      There's so many contrarian takes everywhere, always, that it's hard to have a genuine outsider opinion anymore.

      I'll expand on that even further. I think the NA is kinda boring to drive.

      I've had significantly more fun in a stock smog-era MGB than equally stock NA.

      I did love the ND though.

      The answer to my "what sports car should I buy?" will never be "the best 911 you can afford".

      I have ZERO interest in track racing motorsports like NASCAR and Formula One.

      Drag Racing is very fun and relatable, as it is how most people in my country (America) "compete" with other drivers on a daily basis.

      I can afford but have no interest in modern performance variants (the AMGs, Ms, Vs) made past 2013 or so.

      Modern Japanese cars suck. As do most older ones.

      No dispute, I just completely agree with this.

      +1, mainly because I can't afford them and they get gobbled up to put in garages and never driven.

      • 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)
      • I prefer restomods over original restorations. Nothing about driving an old car with old suspension, old switchgear, old engine, old tires, sounds enjoyable to me.

      Paint protection beyond wax is wasted effort. Clearcoat is already protecting the paint.

      men who bang on about how a manual is the only transmission that is acceptable have masculinity/sexuality issues. your obsession with grabbing the stick in your hand firmly says a lot more about your masculinity/sexuality situation than the fact that you have been married for however many years.

      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.

      I hear you - and would normally agree, but now seeing the mileage on my cars, I must say its tough to rack up THAT more mileage - if you're buying a sports car / garage car, you obviously also have a more comfortable car / perhaps a family

      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!

      Also, the car hipsterism expressed by Jalopnik dorks is insufferable.
