2003 Growlers - Affordable & 'Dreamable'

Roadsters are the stuff that  male fantasies are made of. Owning a road-hugging growler is almost an attainable dream now for most  mortals.  Starting at $19,000,  the price tag accelerates faster than the 3.8 second Ferrari take-off.

Following pages are a compilation of the 2003 machines - based on Manufacturers' Price for Base Models. The roar parameters are presented both in terms of affordability and Hp (for the power-hungry!)  

Happy 2003!
