haha, to each their own (about hairstyles and car styles).

That's one sexy car... some day...

I did get to sit in one in NYC's Audi Forum... I think I drooled over it for an hour in the gallery...

Awesome car. However, for $100K, this one gets my vote:

I see your lotus and raise you the ariel atom...this thing must be a blast to drive. However, 100% completely impractical. I would take an R8 or something I could drive comfortably daily over this. But if I could afford an R8, I probably could afford both.

Yes, that would describe me. :oops:

I've actually given up driving my Elise, for a ~$7k used open wheeled formula car. The Elise is fun and all, but it gets blown away by a "real" race car. Just got my SCCA club racing license, and now I'm hooked. :twisted:

A bathtub, maybe if you're like 6"4 or something.
Well, anyone know of anything else that's street legal and as much fun to drive for less than the price of a Boxster?

Evl- THAT IS AWESOME. I have the feeling you're a much better driver than me! Where do you drive, typically? Are you on Elisetalk? Same screenname?

Solaris: I actually live in the western suburbs of Chicago, so it'll live at home while I make the commute to Hyde Park. It's such a fragile car, I really hesitate to drive it downtown. If anyone's curious, I'm actually picking up a Smart Fortwo for the commute!

Also, this is probably as good of a time as any to mention to any GSB people...I currently belong to a league racing series at Chicago Indoor Racing, an indoor karting facility. I'm going to be trying my hardest to get a GSB team together to participate in next year's league season. Check it out at http://www.chicagoindoorracing.com.
