I'd strongly consider a current Miata over this and if the next Miata actually comes close to their target weight of 2k pounds, even with 125-140 hp, it would be the superior car.
It's cool that you're this deep into the cool aid, and I've been this way about other cars (Elise/Exige and various Miatae) but I'm not seeing this as something particularly special.
