Hello all. I didn't want to create a "poll", but wanted to get an idea why we buy the X 1/9 over the competition: MR2, Miata, Fiero, MGB, etc.? I used the search function, and came up with nothing on why we choose X 1/9 (I will own one myself shortly). For me, it is the Gandini styling, the great handling, the "other-ness" of an X 1/9, as you don't see one every day, or at every car show. It is a baby 308, if you like. An underdog, giant-killer sports car, from an earlier era. She (the X 1/9) just stands out---in a good way.
