Re: Reasons why this car sucks Yeah, when the needle hits 6,000 all hell breaks loose. I had one for a year while I was in the U.S., but have now moved back to Canada where the topless season is too short to justify owning it. My most memorable run in this car was from Seattle to San Francisco. Sifted through Grant's Pass and some other snakey areas at some damn high speeds. Never found the so-called lack of torque to be a problem, but then I'm not a journalist who happened to drive the car for an hour or so. A lot of folks don't realize (and refuse to accept the fact that)this car drives effortlessly at 4,000 to 6,000+ rpm. It is designed to do that. Like other cars are designed to drive at say 3,000 rpm. After a while you tend not to notice your engine speed but you sure as hell know that it's ready to go. But then that's what a (good) high revving car is all about. People like SC.Net Members #1 through #X seem to think you have to wait around while it winds up to 8,000 rpm before anything happens. The 0-60 and 1/4 times would indicate that it revs up (and speeds up) very fast which it does. It's surprising (or maybe not)that so many folks who base a lot of their car knowledge on the numbers in car mags can't see this. Then there's those great slalom times. But I won't get into that because all that really seems to matter to these is engine size and that straight line run to nowhere.
