First car was a '68 Dodge Monaco, a big old tank. I was 16. It was 8. First new car was an '85 Dodge Daytona Turbo, a 146hp turbo 4. Peppy for then but even my '06 X3 would have run away from it. First real sports car was a '91 Mitsi 3000GT VR-4. 300hp TT V-6 and AWD. Its handling was well above anything up to that time and still the most neutral easy to drive at the limit car I've had to date. 4 wheel drifts where a breeze. The handling would not bite you even on sheer ice. And that was with Michelin XGT-4 performance all-seasons.

Hey guys, I know this thread is soo last week but I'm sitting here at the detailers looking at the sept issue of Car & Driver and I see that the 2011 IS was reviewed in the august issue. Their road test summary lists the 0-60 as 4.4 and the 1/4 mile 12.9 @109.9... Anyone have this issue?
