I actually prefer a car needing to be a kit car in order to bypass safety regs. Makes sure you're serious if you've got to build it, even just a tiny little bit of it, yourself. While I can see a dumbass buying a stripped out Z and crashing it into my house, building something like a Caterham kind of scares off the dumbasses and keeps the car in the hands of someone who is serious about driving.I would have to agree with 2Billion on this one. There are companies that make nothing but enthusiast cars, Caterham, Ariel, Lotus (well they got a GT car now). Then you got mainstream companies that make sports cars so you got the Nissan Zs the Hyundai Genesis.
The thing that Spectre and I were talking about is that if gov't removed safety regulations from cars things like the Z, Genesis Coupe, Stang and so on could be made much lighter and allow for us ENTHUSIASTS to enjoy them w/o actually hindering the rest of the population. Would also likely bring down the prices for those cars.
But that's my own odd impression of these things.
