Roadster joy 2021-01-03 10:27:22

As the road winds its way up a mountainside with the tight bends and hairpin turns, the roadster driver is suddenly in their element, rejoicing not only in every sharp curve along the road but also the feeling of the wind blowing in their hair.

Many cars are designed for transporting passengers or goods. A roadster is different, and it is designed to offer the owner the joy of driving. With their two-seat layout and folding roof, they are always impractical and illogical. But who wants to be practical with a car, after all, I am at an age where I no longer need to drop the kids at school, and the boot is big enough to fit a little bit of shopping.

For the roadster owner, it is about the drive. Being lightweight brings nimble handling and braking, a low centre of gravity that aids strong G-force cornering and that peppy exhaust completes all the sensations and dimensions of driving as it should be. Don't worry about the destination; it is how you get there that counts.

Once you have owned a roadster, you will never want to part with it. It can lighten up your holidays and is the ideal car for the romantic weekend getaway for two.

In the end, driving a roadster is pure joy.

Have you watched Pixar's Soul yet? There's a way they depict what it feels like to be in flow. And I like this description of the Roadster you wrote because it makes me imagine the Roadster is transporting passenger... but not to a physical location but this metaphysical flow state.
