    he just announced plans to "ramp up" production to almost 3000 units a year!
    yeah its really not looking too good for TVR. I think they'll probably either go out of buisiness and disapear, or they'll get bought out by someone and slowly start to make sensical cars. Either way its not going to be good.

    i still can't believe they completely wrecked the one in Swordfish. probably the only TVR to ever hit the 'States.
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.

    i dont think the new turbo qualified, but you can buy a 996 turbo for about 50k.

    Yeah I wasn't sure what the price is on a new 911T. Still a 996 is good too.

    You can get some pretty good superchargers for the NSX, its not a bad daily driver... true it doesn't have lots of power stock but thats because it wasn't made for drag and highway racing but mountain, track, and roads with a lot of technical areas.

    Isn't that always the story?

    Every time a car is underpowered, the response is always "yeah, but man, it handles!" Great. Who cares how well it handles when you get out-accelerated by everybody else? A Miata is zippy too but you don't see me buying one.

    Lack of hp is what decided to make people race each other in K-Mart parking lots anyway

    Yeah, not even close for the new 911. The one C&D tested against the Z06 (another good choice) was $130, 265! Very nice car though.

    First of all, I gotta say that all of your hatin' on the NSX is poo. Having driven an '04 many times, I have to say that it is a hell of a lot more fun than most Subarus, mildly modified STi's included. The fact that you are sitting that low, coupled with the fact that the gearbox is simply the tightest thing since 16 year old cooter and that the steering is so precise, creates an exotic experience superior to just about any drag car with big hp.

    Well considering how much an NSX costs it shouldn't even be compared to a Subaru.

    Well, anytime you start comparing that something is fast, but something else has better handling, I'd say that you are making a comparison regardless of price. Yes they are expensive, but you will not find a similar driving experience for subaru money.
