Wow,Guess what I saw yesterday ? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Why would you call a FWD car a sports sedan?
I've heard of Intrepids and Eagle Visions be refered to as sports sedans. Those are FWD crapola cars. What are we taliking about here? I'm talking domestic. The SSEi, GTP, and LSS are domestic sports sedans. They are far better and faster sedans than the Intrepid ES, Vision TSi, Marauder, and Taurus SHO. Those are what America considers sport sedans. Now if you want to compare to say a BMW M5, Audi RS6, or a E55 AMG then yes we drive grandma cars. Mmmmm.. 2003 Audi RS6, me want.

Minimum IMHO you need a Manual transmission, or RWD. Tapsh*t isn't a manual either..

Need more then a big engine!

The normal thinking of a true RWD "sport'* sedan" went away about 20 years ago.

I'll dissagre, Every Bimmer is still rwd, even the Euro 1 series, Mercs, Audi'*, CTS, STS, GTO RX-8 (kinda), G8 will be, the New Charger,

The world of cars is going the right way in the US finally. But we're still playing catch up for the most part.
