5th Gear Best Sprots Car

Maybe I missed an earlier thread but on 5th Gear this morning they were doing the best sports car. They evaluated a Radical, Caterham, S2000, Miata, Elise, Vauxhaul Elise, Boxster, TVR, and a few others. The surprise winner was the Boxster! And they liked the Vauxhaul version of the Elise better than the Elise also.
Go figure.
It was a combination of performance and day to day driveability.

The episodes on Speed Channel are all old.

The episode (not shown on Speed Channel) from the 8th of this month was about the Best of Britain, where they rehashed their May 2004 shootout between the 111R and the VX220, with the Elise winning by a small margin. They also said that not only is the 111R the best sports car from Britain, it's the best in the world.

There was a thread on this before here somewhere. Hmm, well I own both and the Boxster wouldn't be my choice :D
But if you are grading for resale and practicality then the Boxster probably is a bettter choice. But for most people here, driver enjoyment has a much greater influence than practicality.
