My knees only hit my steering wheel after someone else has adjusted my steering wheel too low. That was when I let others drive my car. It's been mostly me, so, yeah, not an issue as of late.
People (not aimed at you, Hip) need to start admitting to themselves whether they just want magazine-racing straightline speed or a car that's both easy AND fun to handle on a continual basis.
People also need to stop acting like they live in places where they can utilize 300+HP around every corner and turn.
200HP for a car that's consistently being touted as being fun to drive seems reasonable to me.
