You are exactly right, Wolfman. Give me a good British sports car any day over a Corvette. Let's see today, I can buy a new British ..., ah, um, what is British built that is new today?
Lotus Exige S, 23 city/29 highway, top speed 148, 0-100 11 sec, base $59,890. http://www.lotuscars.com/Exige_Spec_Sheet.pdf
Lotus Elise, 24 city, 29 highway, top speed 150, 0-100 12.9 sec, base $46,270 http://www.lotuscars.com/Lotus_Spec_Sheet.pdf
TVR Sagaris top speed 160+, 0-100 8.1 sec, http://www.tvr-eng.co.uk/specification_sagaris.php Tuscan S top speed 160+, 0-100 8.1 sec, http://www.tvr-eng.co.uk/specification_tuscan.php
Can't find pricing for the US. Looks like Pound Sterling 41,100 (4.0 liter) to 46,500 (4.5 liter). I guess I can only have one if I move to England. Good idea, Wolfman, move there and buy one. Today, the Pound is $1.9774 US. So that figures to $81,271 base to $91,949. I would think for an additional $30,000 they could improve the interior over a $50,000 car.
Triumph? Dead
MG? Dead
Ok, Let's include Europe.
Porsche. Boxster top speed 160, 0-60 5.8 sec, $45,600 base Cayman top speed 160, 0-60 5.8 sec, $49,400 base I have to agree, Porsche has always had impeccable fit and finish. Of course, aren't these models the Paris Hilton of cars? A lot of look at me but no substance? To get a real Porsche, the 911, we start at the $72,000 base and work quickly up to and over $100,000 base. Hmm, isn't that Z06 territory?
Ferrari!! Not that I could afford one if I sold everything I had, but if they work as well as their website, I think you might be walking a lot. I guess the old saying is true, if you have to ask ...
I remember that in the TV show Magnum PI, Tom Selleck gave each of the stars a new Porsche as a gift. Seems odd a show that displays the Prancing Red Horse so much would get Porsches, unless there was more stories behind the show about that Ferrari.

Yes, the pathetic dufus couldn't even copy the word from the subject line correctly. His displayed level of incompetence would indicate even mediocrity is an unobtainable goal for him.
