What is everyone going to do in about five years or so when you need or want a new car? What are the reasonable choices? I think there is RSX, Celica, WRX, Eclipse and S2000. None of these choices excite me (except s2000) None are really high performance vehicles. How come Mazda doesn't have a bonafide sports car? Toyota only has the Celica (which isn't really that sporty). The WRX is ugly in my opinion and the S2000 in five years may not be as impressive as it is now. Have import car companies lost the need to have a edgy sports car, with an ever increasing share of the north america market? What I mean is that now that imports are established do they no longer need to draw attention?

P.S. Has anyone seen the new tiburon, I think its a great looking car, still sucks, but now it looks good.

hehe in about 5 years from now i picture myself rolling in either the newz or a chevy z06 corvette. Those vettes are damn sweet for the money. I think they look badass and they got the motor to back it up. I know it aint an import but the Corvette has been the one domestic's I've always wanted.

something is wrong with that dyno, the torque and hp curve doesn't cross at 5252rpm.....but a damn flat curve tho, but check up on the souce of that chart, might not be true.
