I was thinking about getting a Calibra for that very same reason (pretty much the best CdA of any production car). However, sports cars usually have more expensive spare parts, so they do cost a little more to run. I would love to see what I could achieve by hypermiling one though. I used my fuel economy calculator and determined that I should be able to achieve equivalent or better with an econobox, unfortunately (due to mass difference and engine size), so I'm not getting one.
