The civilized back-and-forth hits the main points: that the 210-hp engine is peppy but only when paired with a manual transmission; that the car is striking if a bit "metrosexual" in the sparkly lime-yellow paint; that it's a true four-seater; that its suspension is confident and build quality excellent. They do however get really hung up on the price, as for some reason the Swede, when optioned out, is tagged at $47,640. That kind of dough will get you 98 percent of a Boxster. No word on if Saab's traditional major discounting applies to the convertible, but knowing the popularity of their previous-gen 'vert, one would suspect that some "price high, sell low" scheme will be in effect.
