I hate that argument. It completely dismisses the criticisms of the car without providing any counter argument. Oh, well your criticism doesn't matter because you just don't get it. I think everyone criticizing it gets it, they just want a faster version of it.
It was designed to be a performance/drivers car to a specific price point. That's it right there. Do you really think the engineers said, well we could add more power but that isn't what this car is about. No, they said, we need to design the best car that we can for X amount of dollars. What they ended up with was 200 hp. If the car continues to do well, they'll surely come out with a more powerful version at a higher price point and the whole you don't get it argument will be moot because they'll be talking up how great the more powerful version is.
