Marino Franchitti tells you all about it. I’ll not try to paraphrase that here, but what we need to take away from this is what pure enjoyment really is. What it means, and what today’s “sports” cars mostly lack.
Driving feel. Can the driver easily make the car do anything he/she wants? Does the car talk to the driver? Does the driver talk to the car? Has today’s sports car lost something? Because a Corvette with 500hp claimed as a “slow car” is either total bullshit, or cars are so over performanced that a human being no longer has that two-way conversation with their car.
(Another thing, about Kinja. Now I have to reset the time on the post before I publish or it sticks it way back in line to when I started writing this thing and not when I click publish. Dammit.)
