You don't really explain why you prefer the older one, which, in my view, is uglier and , in your view, has a rubbish ride, dreadful throttle response and is much slower. So what's the good stuff? Steering feel? Brake feel? Manual gearbox? Tricky handling that challenges a good driver but can kill you? What exactly are modern manufacturers going to learn from driving the flat nose?
