(EDIT - I saw you post some test that said the difference was only 10% of STI outhanlding the Taurus. I need to go for a test drive in a new Taurus. My dad has an Altima, I'd say they are sort of similar, and I can't see it being such a minor difference. I'm certain I would have ended up off the road/track in any other car than my WRX, and I've driven plenty of cars.) You really believe this number?
Second, good luck getting your pedestrian car up to 90mph. I think Fred Flintstone burned stone a few times, but never got up to 90mph
I did 110 mph in an Echo in Highschool. It was as stupid dangerous thing to do. The point being that any "pedestrian" car now a days can hit 90mph. Doesn't mean it is safe. Also, the skid pad difference between a Taurus and STi aren't as massively different as you would expect. The truth is that most cars now can pull a fairly decent corner mostly due to the advances in the tire technology.
