Which begs the question ” Is the muscle car dead?” or maybe better yet, “Was this even a valid test?
Motor Trend came away saying “Compared to the three domestics, the Genesis offered the finest, most driver-focused sensations from behind the wheel. It was the only one that felt like a genuine sports car.”
It pitted 3 Muscle Cars against a Sports car. Of course it won! As long as the other are mired in the past, relying on nostalgia instead of trying to make a sports car they will, well, not get sports cars.
Now the Mustang did beat it almost every test, so why did MT choose to crown the Genesis? It was the “only one the looks and feels like sports car.”
