I have the M Roadster, it's a two-seater only. Everybody has a passion (almost everybody), it may be cars, it may be wines, it may be art, it may be antics or it may be stamps. In most cases, a person would defend his interest telling it's worth the time and money, etc. So, if the passion are cars, I'll tell anyone that's the most interesting and thrilling experience one can have. Cars are not "to transport a person from one spot to another", just as your house is not a shelter from cold and rain. A two sitter is nice and feels very different. It's a luxury because of being an expensive and unpractical toy. The more expensive - the more unpractical. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Not always of course. I like sport cars, cars with lots of power, torque and solid dynamic performance, that is not to say I'd be driving an "engine on the wheels" type of car which has nothing but brute power which is imposssible to apply and control. A coupe or a roadster car with a nice engine (not necessarily insanely powerful) will make you feel very confident on the road. A normal sedan car can be nice but it's all about being practical, about accomodating your friends and family and about going for shopping. A logic conclusion from all this is that a two-seater car should only be purchased as the second car, once you have an every-day use one. You should also consider your priorities. A two-sitter is an aim for "car passion", thus there is no sence in bying a modest two-seater. More expensive ones obviously cost money. At this point you should think whether you feel like spending that amount of money on a car (that is, you're really interested in them) or it's just a momentary inclination which would soon pass. There are many other costy hobbies. You can completely renew the furniture in house, you can spend it on travelling, you can buy jewelry. I would'n do the later since it's stupid, so I'd only do it if my wife (a hypothetical one <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> ) asked me to, within reasonable limits of course. Cars are more valuable than some pieces of carbon embraced in metal.
Anyway, back to the point ... a two-seater is good to have if:
1) You like cars.
2) You have enough free money.
3) You prefer it to all other expensive purchases.
4) You already have a car for everyday use.

Can never shut up in time. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Here is to your question: If you're environmentally aware, you should just by an economic coupe with 4 seats and low engine capacity, it will not consume a lot of fuel, have enough place for everone and reasonably envirnment friendly. Don't think they make this kind in USA, though. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Would have to be a european. You really need a new car? What's wrong with the Mustang?
