    I think the ND Miata is a 'fun' car to drive, and it has less than 200 hp, so I answered 200. My cars have been in that 200-300 hp range, and have been plenty of fun. S2000, 348ts, and now an Alfa 4C which is by far the quickest and actually a little scary with only 237 hp, but 258 tq. I think tq has more effect than hp.

    All depends on power to weight ratio... but if talking about normal production cars being used as a daily driver then 550hp is the sweet spot for me.
    I judge this by all the daily’s I’ve had - many Aston’s felt underpowered at 510hp. 550 in the V12VS and in the Vanquish is just right to make the commute to work peppy!
