Default What Would You Buy (Survey)?

Hey everyone!

I need a little advice/opinions and thought this might be one way to get it.

Assumptions:
  • Vehicle would not be a daily driver/only vehicle (primary purpose is “FUN”; see more on that below)
On a scale of 1-10 (10 being most important)…
  • Outright performance is a “5”
  • Comfort and convenience is a “6”
  • Vehicle will be fully equipped with all options
  • For purposes of this survey, Price is not a consideration
  • For purposes of this survey, transmission choice is not a consideration (I like and can happily live with either a 7AT or 6MT)
Please take my “survey” and then post what you think - thanks in advance for your input!!!

Survey(?) This post screams out for a "Poll".

EDIT: Ahhh... there it is!

just get the car that makes more sense to you. my Z is my hobby car and therefore 6MT and base + sports package with no extra crappage onboard, just the way i like it.

When you say fun, I think you have to explain what you have in mind. Because there are two ideas of fun in a car, a long drive in the country (i.e. roadtrip), or going to the track and beating the hell out of it. I'm guessing you're a drive in the country type of cat.

I autocross my vehicles (even thought I'm technically not supposed to); however, HPDEs are not an option.

I drive hard but yes, they tend to be road trips and cruise-ins and as often as I can get to the Tail of the Dragon and the Hellbender (NC/TN border)

You can get an idea of how I use my Z's here: Robert's Route 66 Ramblings

Let's PLEASE not turn this into an AT v MT discussion.

I sad it doesn't matter because, for purposes of this poll, it truly doesn't matter since I am equally happy with either.

Fun is a pretty vague and subjective term. I'd go with the Touring Coupe. In fact, I DID go with it! If you want to call the 40th Anni model that anyway.

I really didn't anticipate that "fun" would be this complicated!

"Fun" just means it isn't an only vehicle...it means I don't "have" to use it for anything except what I want to use it for.

I may use it to go to the target range or I may use it to go to a cruise-in or I may use it to travel across country or to put it in a car show or an autocross or to hit the Tail of the Dragon and I may even use it to get to work now and then but it's only because I want to...it's all FUN!

BY THE WAY...
For those of you voting for the Touring Coupe; I'm wondering what issue/issues is pushing you in that direction specifically as opposed to the Roadster (which is currently in 2nd place)???

If you really want to start another bovine scatology argument about how true enthusiasts only drive manuals feel free; just do it in your own thread.

i dont believe i have any issues with the roadster, but for me, coupe > roadster in most cars. I'm typically a fan of the benefits of having a hardtop vs the open top variants. the only convertibles i would purchase would be in hardtop convertible forms.

now if someone offered me a ferrari spyder i wouldn't turn it away....
