Saw one in Orion Silver headed south on the 404 a few days ago. I wasn't terribly moved by this car up close on the auto show circuit but it's quite striking in motion.

They may look different but they're just like other cars under the surface. You should try to get to know one.

Always have and always will love the verts. Too bad this one has the headlights like Lexus sedans.

I know the chasis rigidity is reduced significantly which usually requires reinforcement and as a result adds a noticeable amount of weight.

Also, getting to 'know' one will not make it more visually appealing to me. Maybe my taste will change over time, but as it stands now, all convertibles repulse me.

Sorry if this displeases you, but it's just the way I feel.
