It's not really a fair comparison because not having a Farcebook account, not being able to drink through a straw, and not wearing makeup, he has fewer distractions.

The 2017 Mazda Miata RF Hard Top Convertible: This Is It

New Miata hardtop convertible looks cools. Shame it's going to add weight. Car needs more power anyways.

It's more of a targa top than a convertible.

Nah. 155 is plenty in a Miata, not that it's hard to get more if you want it.

You used to be able to take the stock motor out of an MX5 and drop in a Ford 5.0 V8 like it was designed to fit. I don't know if that is still true, but a 410hp MX5 might be interesting to drive.

Saw this plated car today...I'm easily amused.

Also saw STRFSH on a black Cube.

I had the 2008 hardtop. That added (I think) 60lb or so over the ragtop... I couldn't tell the difference.

Well yeah, but for you 60lb is about the same as your lunch, so that's understandable...
