In that case why not buy something that is lighter, like an Elise or Westfield etc, they are sports cars due to the power to weight ratio.
The MX-5 etc are ok to drive, but they are half baked efforts in comparison as they are too civilised, no wonder some consider them as hairdressers cars.
My dad had a Mk2 MX-5 with the 1.8 litre engine and to be honest I was underwhelmed. Noisy, cramped, slow and the engine sounded pretty rubbish. Then there is the awful plastic interior.
Cars like them are pleasant, non intimidating 2 seat convertibles for pootling around country roads. A proper sports car is something like a Austin Healy 3000, AC Cobra, TVR etc...
