I think the wheels look excellent in silver! But, I don't like black wheels. I've got Defenders on my Camry, and I love them.

I love them! My last set got 100k miles and still had life left. Really impressive.

What year Camry? I really like the 2015+ SE's. I'm considering one as a backup car.

My Camry is a 2010 LE 2.5L with only 26K miles... and in showroom condition. It's actually my 5th Camry. I sold my 2005 Camry in March 2010 and bought the 2010 a few days later; it was a certified used with about 2000 miles. I like the body style of this generation best; every line of the sheet-metal design just seems to make sense. I love this car and really enjoy driving it a couple of times a week. I consider the Yaris my sport car and the Camry my luxury car.

Yes, I know what you mean.

Nevertheless, the Yaris is a really fun and nimble little car. I think my '07 was a bit more raucous and perhaps somewhat more sport-car like, and the '14 is more "refined" with less fun factor... but I still love it.

Yeah sports car is a tough way to talk about a Yaris. I do enjoy driving them, but sports car talk I reserve for rowdy and reckless V8 rwd stuff. I'm hoping to purchase a 5.0 Mustang once a few things sell.

When I think about sport cars more seriously, vehicles like MGB, Triumph Spitfire, Austin Healey, Jaguar XKE, Datsun 240Z... come to mind.

Nobody's saying the Yaris is a muscle car :-) But due to its light weight, it only takes a few small tweaks to make it a great zippy little sports car. This is honestly the most fun vehicle I've had since my BMW Z1.

Add a good suspension and the Yaris really can shine. There is a reason they are still autocrossed and raced.

Yeah, I myself wouldn't make V8 engine a prerequisite for the title of sports car, but when I think sports car, I think something that was designed with performing on the road as one of it's primary objectives. The top end would be something like a Ferrari. Middle of the road would be something like the original NSX. Rounding out the bottom (again, just my thinking) would be something like an S2000, or Miata.

I love my Yaris for more than a few reasons, but it's a sub compact econo-egg on it's best day lol. I know the mighty Jason@ and Armstrong Racing have done some incredible things with the platform, but nonetheless I couldn't think of these cars as sports cars.
