2.5 years ago while shopping for a convertible, I drove everything out there - probably 25-30 different convertibles ranging from 70s Ferrari 308 to the present.

Since I love cornering in my daily driver, - I bought the Boxster S with Factory tuned suspension.

If convertible had not been a requirement, I would have probably chosen something less expensive and more tossable.

I rejected various cars for various reasons. For example, my shoulders don't fit comfortably in a Miata and I refuse to go on a 200-300 mile joyride with a bent spine. The Viper had a wing in the center of the rear view mirror and was almost impossible (for me) to control when you push it. The BMW M3 had great power, but the convertible M3 was a lead sled. etc.

We all have our reasons for our cars.

It seems like you like small, light, fun, and good lines - I'd say a Boxster fits the bill. Having had your fill of the Miata (admit it), I think you need to get into another car you can fall in love with, a Boxster is just that kind of car.

A turbo 2.7 or header/intake/ECU'd 3.2 Boxster gives you Lotus performance, Miata reliability, and Jaguar sensuality.

If you just want to have fun, and don't need the convertible, the WRX STI drivers and Z06 drivers also seem to love their cars.
