Back when cars struggled to that speed, maybe that was a good measurement.
0-60 has been worthless since the early/mid 2000s, depending on what sector of cars you use. Hell, even 1/4 mile times are no defunct because of launch control, huge power, and floppy-paddle shifters.


I remember when hitting 200 was a holy grail. Hell, I remember when 160 was considered a fast car. The numbers modern cars put out are just stupid.

Cars also weigh 1000lbs more and need more power to perform the same as older vehicles. My 1991 150hp cavalier 4x4 was faster than my 2004 242hp Quest.
