Some recommendations are easy. If you're after a used roadster that's built from a clean sheet of paper around a purist mid-engined design, by people with a competition pedigree as long as your arm and which is palpably the best car in its class, the decision makes itself. You should buy a Porsche Boxster. If, however, your funds won't stretch to the Porker, there exists an alternative which isn't as far off the German Mark as you'd expect. The Toyota MR2 in it's back to basics third generation design is as incisive and effervescent as anything that Stuttgart can produce, and if you've got a yen for saving money, it's a sure-fire winner. As a used proposition it makes a good deal of sense. Nearly new cars will give you the MR2's baby Boxster looks and metronomic reliability at tempting prices. Dual Income No Kids Yet? The MR2 is a good advert for preserving the DINKY status quo.
Although the Toyota MR2 is eclipsed in the sales charts by the Mazda MX5, here is a more exotic, more specialist car that successfully bridges the gap between the usual effete roadsters and the more hardcore fare served up by specials like the Vauxhall VX220 and Lotus Elise. Why it hasn't sold better is largely down to its limited practicality, but as long as you're prepared to travel light, a used Toyota MR2 isn't going to disappoint. Recommended.
