If you go into it expecting a GT car, it's actually great. Plenty fast to be fun, a back seat for small children, can't rust, light weight, better handling than your average GT, economical, super comfortable, and stable at speed.

If you go in comparing it to a 911 or Corvette (or exotic), it's slow, not overly grippy, and not very feelsome.
?? Its faster than a 911 carrera and about the same as an S in the real world. Its clearly not going to compete with the Turbo or GT3! I would never describe the i8 as slow!
