So now the Carrera GT, GT2RS, Viper, Z06, ZR1, Exige, LFA, F40, etc, are "bad cars"?
A real driver WANTS to push the car they're in, no matter what it is. The challenge is part of the fun. Hell, for people like me, it IS the fun. If there's no challenge, there's no point. That's not to say I'd want a car that's like that all the time, but when I'm going for it, want the car to expose my mistakes, so I can learn from them and make myself a better driver.
I'm not taking anything away from today's cars. They are superior in every meadurable way, and that can't be denied. It's never been a better time to be an enthusiast, nearly every manufacturer around the world is bringing something awesome to the table year after year, and there's something new to drool over every other week. But the basic definition of a "Driver's Car", as in what it was when the term was first created, is a car that requires a driver to appreciate it and master it. And "driver" doesn't mean whatever yuppy happens to be behind the wheel. It means someone who has some actual talent and can drive performance machines the way they were meant to be driven.
That used to be obvious, but now the waters are muddied, IMO, by manufacturers catering to people with more money and ego than sense and skill. They can't make cars like that anymore, because the mouth breathers would be dying in droves, and sometimes not alone. And also because they wouldn't turn a profit.
