There's nothing wrong with the car. It's a great car. But if you ask me, after all these years of stagnant performance, or even worse performance than the early STI's, this S209 should be the normal version. For $37-42k. Not $60-65k. All the crap they did to it, should be standard already. In 20 years the Mustang has doubled in performance. The STI.... added a bunch of weight and 14 horsepower.Isn’t that how it should be? The S209 is suppose to be and hopefully will be the final iteration of the current platform, with that being said, there is a huge part of me pray that the next gen will retain and stay true to being a driver’s car. Generations of Porsche had already surpassed the air-cooled 911 in term of performance long ago, but that doesn’t mean people stopped appreciate them. I still get giddy seeing a 308 GTS or an Espirit Turbo on the road today even know that the engines in today’s compact SUV can out power them with ease. I don’t know what the S209 will become, that’s for history to decide. I do think that a little restrain and respect can be shown toward the S209 owners. My purpose of posting the videos is because I think as car enthusiasts, we can all benefit from learning more about the car from a different POV that most people never thought about. Then again, I could be wrong.
The S209 is an awesome car. For the price of a normal STI.
