While there might be some truth to this statement (the one person I know how owns a Miata also has a Lexus ES350, BTW.... ;) ), there's nothing fundamentally wrong w/ a car that appeals to a wide variety of ages and isn't the best option as primary transport or an only car.... The Miata isn't about performance. Hell, the current Camry and Accord, when equipped properly, pull skidpad numbers that were only attainable by sports-car ~10 yrs ago.
There is a place, esp in today's automotive landscape where nearly everything pulls very impressive numbers, for a car that emphasizes subjective driving enjoyment, IMHO.
