So maybe I exaggerate just a leetle.
My personal preference is to have a well-balanced car for everyday use. I love gratuitous acceleration, but these days the reality is that 99% of the time, that acceleration is being used to escape road-raging SUV, truck and Lexus drivers. And the handling is used 99% of the time to escape the "scoop and squat" maneuver that's all the rage, literally.
I'd love to spend some time at the track, but the reality is the friends who I did those things with when we were young are now too busy with their careers and families. But if there are any TR readers in Chicago that want to go to the track, count me in!
You are false data.
