Brilliant handling and very good performance. Ride quality and practicality very good for a 2 seater sports car. Quality of fixtures and fittings first class, although interior is functional rather than inspiring.

Very safe, great handling and ample performance. My wife & i find it good on a touring holiday. Good boot space for a 2 seat sports car. Road tax at £400+ is too high for a low milage user.

Haven't had it long but very pleased so far. Great package of build quality, performance and fantastic handling. Surprisingly practical too for a mid-engined coupe.

A surprisingly reliable car with near 911 performance but without the premium purchase price, and if weighing up the performance per £ it could almost be considered a bargain!

A phenomenal driver's car. £20,000 cheaper than a 911 carrera s - just as good, if not better. Puts a smile on my face every day.
