Automobile Magazine wrote in 1989: "This car is alive. It breathes and flexes its muscles and generally behaves more like an organism than a machine... a flat-out blast to drive. Nimble, precise, even, smooth - wonderful traits all wrapped up into one neat little package... nothing short of continuous ear-to-ear smiles." Here is Jay Leno's take (GREAT 7-minute video): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1qgtCt1jG0.
The transmission is a jewel, with the shortest throw in production. The engine is a development of the robust B6-spec twin-cam 1.6-liter four; not terribly powerful, with only 116 horsepower and 100 lb.-ft. of torque, but very well matched to the rest of the 2,116 lb. car and had camshafts designed to reward high revs. This car has been extremely well-cared for; everything works properly.
