If we were true enthusiasts all about the experience, we all should be falling over ourselves to get one. But I don't own one.
About as likely as I would be to buy a Boxster (less than zero chance). I'm way too insecure to be seen tooling (literally) around in an aerobics instructor's car (regardless of its positive driving characteristics). Plus, a machine can be as light and nimble as a ballerina, but does nothing for me if it doesn't have enough thrust and acceleration to make me think, "oooohhhhhh shhhiiiiiitttttttt" when I open the throttle.
