    So disappointed about the electromechanical steering. I have an Audi S4 with it and it is absolutely awful. I'll probably just keep my NC because it's so much fun. Numb steering = less fun.

    Nice write-up and pics. Looking forward to reading about the retractable hard-top!

    So far two out of two reviews that I have read that mentions the steering is worse.

    Too bad they don't have an option for non-assisted steering. I know it would be too much for a lot of the buyer but the real enthusiasts would likely appreciate it.

    The steering isn't at all "numb," it's just light. It's speed sensitive, not over-boosted, and not numb. The steering is actually very precise and easy to read, albeit it takes some getting used to. But the whole car drives light -- all of the controls have a very light touch.
