    Because I'm highly persuasive.

    There was a Mazdaspeed RX-9...?

    Speaking of the RX-7:

    http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/2012/11/capsule-comparison-part-2-1993-mazda-rx-7/

    These two articles are absolutely fantastic. Not only do they perfectly highlight why the FD is so highly revered, they also don't hold back in listing the flaws that would disqualify it for a large number of people. To quote one of the commenters:

    "My black 1994 RX-7 was cramped, temperamental, unpredictable (turbo + no TC = sideways), and blew through two turbos and 1 tire and wheel in 9,000 miles.

    And it was the best sports car I have ever owned. Period."

    Jeremy Clarkson reached the same conclusion regarding the Corvette ZR1 and why he would buy it over the Audi R8 V10.

    I mean, you don't buy a pure sports car because it makes the most sense, because it doesn't make sense to buy a pure sports car to begin with.

    When you have disposable cash to buy a car, buy the one that makes the least amount of sense because it'll give you the highest amount of fun.
