Weighing it at less than 2,200 lb, the Yes! Roadster is bound to provide sparkling performance regardless of the powerplant, but the second-generation model takes no chances, sporting Audi's 3.2-liter V6 in either normally-aspirated or turbo versions. The turbo pumps out 355 hp and about 360 lb-ft of torque, good for 0-62 mph in 3.69 seconds. For the truly power hungry, Yes! plans an option kit for the turbo model to boost output by an additional 30 hp. The mid-engine Yes! Roadster drives the rear wheels through a six-speed box. Prices start at about $72,000.
Looking a bit like a cross between Toyota's last version of the MR2 and Audi's TT, the styling of Germany's answer to the Lotus lightweight performance theme may not appeal to everyone, but for a small sports car, performance always comes first, and the Yes! pocket rocket looks like it will certainly deliver.
