It turns out that even a “dream job” can quickly turn into “Oh great, I have to go to work again”. But forget that. The cool part […]

It just did not meet my expectations. The car drove nice on the twisty and hilly Merritt Parkway but it was neither the sports car I desired, nor the grand tourer that the XKR was.
