The guessing game v3.0

Hopefully this is the last thread of this type I will post for a while, at risk of beating iwrock and draining my wallet.

After a couple months arranging all the paperwork and shipping from one of my buddies on another forum I can finally say this car is mine...it's bone stock, but as such it is very unconventional in a lot of ways. It's not particularly powerful and certainly not economical but I've wanted one since they came out.

Guesses?

Nope nope! Tyler is probably the closest followed by Evan, the car is only 10 years old which should narrow it down quite a bit.

Based on the information given so far it has to be a smart car.

There's a paradox of it being "not particularly powerful" and "not economical"...

Not really - it sounds "french"

It'll make sense once you guys figure it out it isn't French though. Another clue is it technically has 4 doors.
