10. Joie de vivre
On the other hand, pickup trucks are designed to haul loads of firewood and tow bass boats, minivans are meant to take herds of kiddies to little league tournaments, and compact sedans are all about fuel economy. But sports cars are designed to put a smile on the driver’s face. Tight steering, capable brakes and a solid suspension make these vehicles a joy to hustle through twists and turns. If the weather is nice, the tank is full and there’s no traffic, life doesn’t get much better.
If lots of spirited driving is on the menu your car’s not going to get the best fuel economy nor are its tires and brakes going to last for their advertised life-spans, but it doesn’t matter. Sports cars are happy vehicles that are fun to drive. They’re one of life’s greatest things and something everyone should experience.
