my impression of them is long and low.
they are quite nice inside.
I rode in one at an autocross trying to give pointers to a new driver. They have a lot of torque, they will go like hell, but there is no denying that they weigh a lot. you can feel the weight as it tries to corner.

there is also a roadster that I've seen autocross a bunch on Hoosier Slicks. its weird when it goes by, so quite. the loudest thing you hear is the little rocks and pebbles picked up by the sticky tires and flung into the wheel well. ping ping ping
