The SKY just spoke to me as soon as I saw it!! I had a Feiro years ago it also spoke to me the first time I saw it and I loved driving it. I've had SUVs since the Feiro died, they have been just a car to get from point A to B, the SKY is a totally different experience.

I can't wait for it to arrive, late May hopefully.

Also one other thing that I like is that the SKY has personality, most cars these days are aerodynamic blobs with no style they all look the same. And I need to have some fun brought back into my driving experience.

Walked away from Porsche when

I was all set to buy a used 2003 Boxster, then I test drove the 2008 Sky Redline based on a recommendation of a good friend. Walked back into the sales dep't and negotiated a deal 2 days later for 2008 Black/Black fully loaded Redline 5 spd. Lucky for me the dealership I walked into in Hartford CT had the exact one I wanted, and the only one in the state.
Basically it came down to price, financing 2.9% and torque in a car that many others in CT don't have. Not a day goes by that I don't get a second look or question about the car which only magnifies the decision I made as being the right one.
