Thanks for posting this. No time to read them at the moment, but I assume everyone is raving about the car.

Key things I want to know: how big does it feel, and how communicative is the steering?

Update: after reading some of the reviews, the consensus seems to be that it doesn't feel quite as heavy as it is, but that the steering could be more communicative. The latter is a big deal to me, personally, but then very few current cars are satisfying in this respect.

Otherwise, the reviews have been glowing.

Look at those lateral g numbers! Very nice considering it's tuned to the soft side.

Pedders will have it over 1g in no time

I am amazed how much the reviews differ.

I'll try and add links later but one review said that there's plenty of room for 4 adults while another said there's no room in the back.
Jalopnik said that the handling sucked while several of the others loved it.
C&D said it was too quiet while autoline said it was too loud.
autoline hated the steering wheel but automobile mag liked it.
automobile was slower in the auto in 0-60 but the rest were faster in the auto

Jalopnik's review was overall negative while the rest are almost all positive.

The biggest gripe overall: too much hard plastic.

After reading all reviews, I'm beginning to wonder if a couple of the reviewers even drove the car.

One stated the v6 starts pulling hard at 3500 revs when others say it pulls hard off idle.

One stated the car pushes, when others say it points and shoots.

Going through the reviews, throwing out the extremes, this looks like it's a hell of a car, once you ignore the bias in a couple of the reviews.
