I am also a former Miata owner and it was my dd for 8 years many moons ago. The Toyobaru besides being a Coupe - the noise inside the Miata cabin could be unbearable at times at high speed - has much more storage room either from the trunk itself or from the back seats.

Man, this says it all... if you don't understand how the lack of turbo lag - which is absent with a supercharger - majorly influences the handling of a car you don't know what your talking about.
