The thinking man's Porsche

I've owned a 350Z for nearly 7 years, which is plenty of time to discover it's good points... and its foibles.
So the good points are: lots of power (nearly 300BHP), feelsome and nicely balanced steering, high reliability and plenty of kerb appeal. The not-so-good bits are: thirst, a bit on the heavy side, expensive to tax and not much boot space.
In my book the former far outweigh the latter. This car goes like stink, has powerful Brembo brakes (I've uprated mine with Black Diamond discs and pads), and has proved far more reliable than its more exotic competitors. There are only around 7,000 on the UK roads (there are 3 times as many Porsche Boxsters) so despite its age it still turns heads.
The car is more of a GT than a sports car and is particularly good on long journeys as it has effortless pace, is stable at speed and has comfortable seats. The interior is a bit low rent but not half as bad as some of the car reviewers would lead you to believe (I think they have been spoiled by all the fancy cars they get to drive).
Buy one, you'll love it!
