M coupe (love it, but wish it were 800lbs lighter)
: remember the progression of that car? at first it was a lightweight sports car, but as it aged, it gained a neat twin turbo motor, but also increased in price dramatically as well as in girth.
: and then, it died.
: i've sort of given up on the new M3, and i don't see myself getting another bmw after my m coupe because i used to say that the price premium i pay does not matter, but the fact is, if i'm going to shell out 50k, i might as well get a boxster S. porsche has not abandoned the idea of a lightweight sports car.
: thank you for your post, though.
