I love FWD in lots of cars. I don't think the old Sciricco or my Civics would be improved by going RWD.

I do have to say though the Saab Sonnet, '90s Elan, Ford Capri (the crappy Aussie one) and Del Sol should have all been RWD. They are trying to be sports cars not hot hatches.

Sports cars should be RWD.
Hot hatches should be FWD.

I think that's the best statement in this whole thread. Here here.

I always thought these were sharp looking, but wrong way drive:

With the 1.8 (180hp) in the GTS (2zzge?) they could have been the FT86 well before the FT86. I think this more closely follows the bloodline, to tell the truth.
