When you're talking about engines that size, those 300mL make a big difference. In small cars that much can be the difference between a run-of-the-mill shopping car and a hot hatch.The original Miata had an engine that was almost that small (1.6) and had much less power, I see no downside to this.
I disagree. Any car can be modified to become faster but that does not necessarily make it a sports car. My old roommate's stage II WRX (with suspension, good tires, etc) was much faster than my Miata and yet I found the former quite boring to drive. Also I can't believe Chris Harris would rather have a FWD French hatchback :lol:Any car can be modified into a good sportscar. That quality doesn't make a stock car a good sports car.
