      Builds or built? I thought it was well agreed-upon that the current gen was a big leap forward. I'm not a truck guy, but think the upper trim Rams are basically the embodiment of modern American luxury vehicles.

      Nah, you did well.

      It's a great truck, and in your instance I think you got the deal you did because of the diesel. Do the HEMI trucks cost more on used market?

      The Cayman is more fun than the 911. Year for year. Model for model (i.e. base against base, GT4 against GT3) the Cayman is more fun to drive.

      Turbo cars will put a smile on your face more than normally aspirated will (barring crazy V10 and V12 supercars)

      In turbo cars, DSG/PDK style transmission are more fun than pushing in a clutch to shift.

      Most people who complain about their cars being slow just need to downshift a gear or two and really lay on the throttle.
      Anything above 200 hp/200 lb-ft in a sub 3400 lbs vehicle and 260 hp/260 lb-ft in a 4000 lb vehicle is more than enough.
      Americans really are spoiled by not knowing what engines the rest of the world gets.

      RWD in non-pure-sports cars is dumb.

      People who actually feel the need to say excuses why they're driving automatics are pathetic.

      "Great exhaust" sounds are annoying. I don't care if you have an AMG or Lambo, rev that crap in your garage!

      All Miatas except for the NA suck. But the NA is embarrassing to drive. So Miata is never the answer.

      All Porsches are bland and boring. I'd rather look at a Camry.

      Power is dumb.

      Cars that are profoundly embarrassing to be seen in because of whom they are usually driven by: Corvettes, 911, Miatas.

      They only vehicle available overseas that we don’t get here in FreedomLand that I desperately want is an Alpine A110. Otherwise I don’t care about Euro/JDM only vehicles and I don’t give a crap about little sh*tboxes like the Jiminy.

      And if the Alpine was available here, I couldn’t/wouldn’t buy it anyways (can’t justify or afford $50k+ on a 2-seat car with little kids).

      It's funny, I grew up hearing "Miatas are girls' cars" so often that I didn't realize how ingrained in my head it was until I recently saw an actual girl driving a Miata and it was actually shocking. It was so unusual that it was noteworthy. Miatas are 100% highschool/college aged internet car guy cars.

      Yup. I'm pretty open-minded about the Korean brands, but I agree with you and think this thing lacks presence IRL compared to its glamour shots.

      We were in a drive thru at McDs with the top down in the E88. An old dude in a Miata was behind us, and despite us already being at the food window, we heard clearly the cashier ask him "Cash or Card?"

      He replied "Well thank you, I like my car too!"

      Even stock it sounds weirdly synthetic. I need to drive something with a SBC.

      Not because it's a girl's car. That doesn't bother me, never did.

      Because they're driven by 55-65 y.o. very uncool, sad looking men that look ridiculous in these tiny things.

      I maybe saw one or two younger than 50 persons in a Miata in over a decade.

      This. An old man driving a 20 y.o. $2000 sports car pretending to be live and playful is just... such a cringeworthy sight. Sort of like wearing basketballs shorts and a wifebeater and Beats headphones.

      It's literally the saddest thing I ever see on the road. At least the old guys in Corvettes are likely wealthy (while still looking like complete dorks). But Miata drivers are just sad old men trying to be "sporty". A lot of them are wearing oversized straw hats.

      911s are driven by depressed doctors who only bought 911 because they don't know if it's ok for a doctor to buy any other expensive sportscar. 911 to a doctor is like beige pants and blue shirts. Obligatory.
