#perplexed. What has the calendar to do with engine layout?...
Mid engine was fun in the 70s and 80s but is really passe today.
So not the point of the 4C though, is it?And with the engine in front of the driver there is room for the classic spare tire behind the two seats...plus much more.
Yes, that might be the problem right there.I have tried to fall in love with the 4C...and I am only 5' 9.5" tall and weigh 150 lbs...but I find the driver's position just too tight...I cannot get comfortable in the car.
bwahahaha... The track is where the 4C really shines. Pounding on it lap after lap; 114° sitting over the tarmac. Other cars dropping out from overheating or cooked brakes, but all the registers on the 4C are normal. I gave out before the car did. I'd say Alfa's engineers really knew what they were doing.The Mazda Miata, the MGA, the first Datsun 240Z, the Porsche 914, the Triumph TR2 and TR3, the early Cobras, the 250 SWB Ferrari...etc., etc., were sports cars. You could pack them full of supplies, drive them to the track, tape up the headlights, race them all day, pack up your stuff and drive home. That is a sports car. The 4C is a high performance Diva.
I think it's hard to classify the 4C. It's closest rival would be an Elise. It's the only other modern production car that is as raw and unfiltered as the 4C, perhaps even slightly more so. It's unfortunate they haven't sold them here for several years."Those are the two words you need to remember, Sports Car. There aren’t many of them today. We have family movers, GT machines, and Hyper cars. The 4C is a Sports Car."
