Doesn't change the fact that most of them still putt along in rush hour traffic the same speed as a Camry or Civic.
Unless you spend a lot of the time on a track (which let's face it next to nobody does), then the concept of a "sports car" is an oxymoron.
If you actually want to go fast on a public road, get a bike.
Wow..where do you live where traffic is THAT bad?
Before Katrina, I had a 1986 911 Turbo...and man, what that thing a BLAST to drive...black on black..whale tail, the whole thing.
Even as bad as the roads are here largely in New Orleans, I had NO problems finding places to open up that car and have some fun....taking note of the currently driving conditions at the time of course.
And when leaving out, on the highways, I had no problem getting up to 100+ from time to time and stretching it out...and no, I wasn't passing people up THAT badly...as that most hwy traffic in this area stays about 85mph average.
I guess if you live in LA, it sucks that you have such bad traffic...but it isn't that way by a longshot in most of the US.
