Re: World's Best Overall Car
The question/premise of this thread is obviously way too subjective to be of any real value, and there are similar threads already on this forum, but I suppose it'll be interesting to read the replies. I mean, is "best" the fastest? the more expensive? the most comfortable? the roomiest? the best gas mileage? "The Best" could be anything.
I'll define "best" as most influential, and given that definition I suppose my "World's Best Overall Car" would be the Mazda Miata. I'm pretty sure that this car has introduced more people to performance driving than any other car ever made. It is reliable, nimble, inexpensive, rear wheel drive, and ultimately just a blast to drive. It single-handedly revived the concept of the lightweight, two-seat convertible, and nobody has really been able to match it in the 20 years it's been on the market.
