I agree that a Miata is fun but the later version just doesn't have enough leg/footwell room for me to even operate it safely. When I need to get my sports car jollies I drive my 2016 BRZ blue spec. Otherwise it's a fifth-gen 4Runner.
I really wanted to get some seat time with the new GR86/BRZ, but all the dealers were pulling shenanigans with market adjustments and other garbage, so I politely told them to pound sand. I have a strong feeling I would have regretted not getting a convertible anyway, so no remorse.
