Why is that so? You do realize you're comparing a 200hp hatchback that isn't even track-oriented to a super sports car with nearly 500 hp, right?

Yeah, I haven't spent enough time to find the highest numbers, but I do find it amusing. I probably spend too much time on this site anyway. I should be applying for my next employment instead, but oh well. It keeps me from getting depressed about the economy.
