It really is the last of the affordable rwd sports cars, shame they'll explode in price in the near future.

David is preaching to us in the choir.

I have yet to drive or sit in an 86/etc but I can definitely say that I will never drive an ND because I can barely sit in one.  I tried two different examples.

I have all the sad.  The ND looks awesome on paper, the reviews are glowing.

I'm actually a little afraid to try an 86.

I drive a brand new BRZ about a week ago.  It is a brilliant car.  I will likely have one someday.

I've been looking at used ones actually. Mostly early FR-S and BRZ examples.

In reply to Pete. (l33t FS) :

For context I'm 6ft 4 and I've also driven an ND and when turning right, my hand would hit my knee and just didn't have enough space if I were to buy it. Later bought an FR-S and enjoyed it. I had plenty of leg room but when autocrossing, I had to lean the seat back one extra "notch" to not hit my helmet on the ceiling.

Also was able to fit an xl frame mountain bike with 29" wheels inside the car with juuust enough room to be comfortable. Took some time to wiggle in and out though.

Well, I'm about 6 foot tall and with a helmet, I JUST fit into the ND Miata. The GR86/BRZ twins have a little more space, although I'm not sure how much more. Just give it a try, they're all great cars.

Had a '15 BRZ and now a '23 BRZ. I still regret trading in the '15 BRZ on the wallet busting '13 135i even though it was also a brilliant car.
