I will never be able to afford one, but it makes me sad nonetheless.
Exige S, i guess...
well you can't get an s3 exige in the US either. I suspect they arnt coming to canada?
This reminds me of the dreadfull day when porsche decided to add cupholders to the 911 and then when they decided to add radiatiors. The purists were always offended though the cars always got faster and sold better.
I wish they would at least offer a MT. Even if it didnt sell well it would be worth the image factor I think.
Many track whores (even wealthy ones) like manuals because of maintainability and costs, just as iron brakes are prefered to composite for many.
For single lap wonder cars, pack em with technology for the magazine readers.
Actual cars that are taken to the track regularly should be just sophisticated "enough".
