Since I'm an engineer, words like, "small" don't mean a lot to me. I brought a tape measure to the Pittsburgh show and measured a few things. I compared the Elise to my Z4. I wanted to compare it to the Miata too, but my tape measure broke! I thought you might find this interesting. As you can see, the largest difference between the Elise and the Z4 is in the door to door width. The seats are very close together. I suspect a Miata's interior is not much larger than the Elise's. Anyone want to measure one?
