Many people also usually underestimate FWD sports cars. But it can be as fun as any other car to drive, with LSD, good suspension, balance, brake and hanbrake.
Its engagin to drive, as much or almost as much. Usually its even better than heavy and crapy RWD cars, or understeering AWD.
But it need another skill set, its diffrent type of driving. But car have its own rotation system at the corner, and its faster on wet conditions, on snow or in the dirt as rally toy.

So yes there as many people that says... well in need RWD with 6 cylinder, beceause here sports cars starts to be, but propably they never drow any good hot hatch.

BMW is cool, but if we starting our way from E36 as fun drift machine, sure it have at the best configuration with 2.8 engine 190 hp but... about 1350 kg, and small HH like 206 has 1050 kg, and that is a huge diffrence. GT86 weights about 1200 kg, and we talking about 2012 and car designed to be sports car from beginning, its little too heave for me for its power as a new sports car.

Ye, young road hooligans drive in beemers :) but... they just dont know anything else, thets why they do it.

But GT86 is not a hot hatch. Those who want rear wheel drive car are probably not cross-shopping with hot hatches.

Perhaps a better alternative would be something like an old BMW.

Unless you're from a post-soviet country where old BMWs are top hooligan's cars and most are run down shitboxes :D

Eye-opening trick.
There is a lot of underestimated cars, now few years old that are under 10% of its oryginal price.
One of them: 206 RC. People forgot about them beceause there was not good enough marketing program behind of it, and they are not on the radar of most of sports cars enthusiasts.
But Yes, You can have 110% of GT86 speed by 10% of its price. Pretty iteresting right?
