>>14226964 Honestly, the ideal sports car is a jack of all trades. Not saying the M2 is the best ever but think about. A master of one trade is an F1 car or LMP for speed, a Limousine of luxury and a electric scooter for running costs. None of those are what a sports car enthusiast wants.
You want something that is fast, that isn't very uncomfortable to drive and has decent passenger/cargo space.
>>14226993 That sounds like the ideal dd, not the ideal sports car.
The ideal sports car, for me, prioritises driver enjoyment above literally everything else. Which means it's gonna be ultra subjective because different people enjoy different aspects of driving, but usability usually ain't gonna factor, and comfort might well not either.
>>14227087 Guess it depends how you're defining "sports car". Obviously we all want to drive something properly thrilling every day, but there are things a car needs to have to be driven every day which can detract from thrills. Like, at the most basic level, a roof.
I reckon a decent way to distinguish a dedecated sports car vs a dd is that it needs to worry less about that sort of thing. Which means the ideal dd, for us at least, might gave a lot of the traits of sports cars, but the ideal sports car can drop most of the traits of dds.
And still, I would buy a race car in stead. I'd just take it to the track anyway so better have a dedicated track car. That way if I crash it I still got a daily. 50K will buy you a nice Radical or fast Beemer.
>>14227538 This is the excact same story a friend of mine had with his 528, he even had to get a completely new engine within 3 months. And no, he wasn't hooning i t, it was really a construction error from the Bayerische Motoren Werke..... Odd.....

you'll regret those words unless you live on a circuit in a warm, dry climate. In most people's situation they have to drive a little bit to get to nice driving roads, or to get to the track. What do you in an open top sports car when it rains a bit, or it's cold out? Stuck in traffic? Want to take your girl for a ride? Go somewhere far to drive a new track/touge?
People also want to use their sports cars as commuting cars because they want to admire them after they're parked, and it's just so cool to use such a fast good looking machine for mundane tasks. Also you may be going to an event to meet fellow car enthusiasts, or you just want to be seen in your nice car which is an expression of your personality in general.
The ideal track car that you put on a trailer and drive to the track for some fun laps is the one that is most fun and comfort/usability is the only factor. Not street sports car. You definitely have to sacrifice quite a lot of comfort and usability to be a good sports car, but it needs to have enough to be usable on the street without being terrible.
