Default Is 6'5" too tall for a Sky?

I'm 6'5 with an athletic body type and really enjoy driving small, fast cars. I like to feel like I'm wearing a vehicle as you're more steady and supported during hard cornering maneuvers, and a smaller wheel track allows more leeway in lane position. I hate driving huge pillow barges like towncars or even large sports cars like challengers or camaros, but I know for a fact I can't tolerate a miata for any length of time, or even a Saturn SC. I've never had the opportunity to sit in a Sky/Solstice though, but have always wanted one. If I'm 6'5 200lb with a 35" inseam, can I even consider a Sky?

If not, are there any other recommendations for a small, fast, cost effective and fuel efficient car with plenty of legroom and a telescoping steering wheel for someone my size? 350Z is nice but not fuel efficient, and I'd prefer an I4 due to being easier and cheaper to work on. Everything I want keeps bringing me back to the Sky?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Good to hear. I'll have to try to find one to sit in/ try on. Need to try on an S2k, too.
