OK. Last automotive post for at least a day or two. Promise.
The new Buick Enclave SUV was unloved, the Honda Fit seemed to, uh, fit better into my readership's lifestyles. Now I'm curious about another automotive genre.
None of my regular readers have hit middle age yet, but have any of you lusted over a high-horsepower, low-utility sports car? I'm curious to see if any of the latest eye-candy from the world's automakers has caught the eye of any of you.
Screw practicality. To hell with trunk space. Back seat be damned. F**K fuel economy. Do any of these recently announced vehicles get your motor running?
It's the epitomy of retro design. It's the Dodge Challenger. And it brings 425 tire-melting horsepower with it.
Sure, it looks like a little like a Miata and has no back seat, but it's said to be tremendous fun on twisty roads and beachside highways. It's the Pontiac (yes, that Pontiac) Solstice GXP and it sells for about $25,000 with 250 horsepower. Or you can have a less powerful version for about $19,000.
Thanks for any input you guys have.
