I've driven both. I don't agree with you. The 86 feels a lot like a 240sx or other simple, front-biased FR sports cars. It's forgiving, but can't change directions as quickly or maintain as much...

Congrats. You completely missed the point.

The point: Neither torque nor fun RWD sports cars are needed for the daily commuting grind. That doesn't stop people from wanting those things though.

There are a lot of people who say it is extremely bland. IGN's current review of it is 6.0/10.0.

I want to start seeing some 2.3L ecoboost swaps into the twins & 240sx. Seems like the perfect modern 4 cylinder to throw in one.

It's on purpose. They wanted it to be easily controllable for drifiting. More front-biased weight distribution + a long wheelbase = a lot of stability and time for correction.

Another interesting difference between the s-chassis cars and the 86 cars is that the s-chassis cars had a wider front track than rear track, whereas the 86 is the opposite. It has a wider rear track.
