A friend picked one of these up this weekend. It is not a good road car, it is exceptionally slow, at least in my opinion. It might be fun as a track day car because it really does handle beautifully, I can't see any reason someone would buy a Miata as a track day car instead of this. Even so, against drivers of reasonably equal skill I don't think you would be able to keep up with some of the cars people are trying to compare this with...it really is sloooooooooooooooooooooow. Hopefully the STI/TRD (or whatever designation Toyota uses, assuming it comes out with a higher performance model) makes it a better DD.
