You don't need to drift a RWD car for it to feel better than FWD. The first time you accelerate out of a roundabout its different. Do you really think every RWD 4 door saloon is a daddy's car?
Do you not think a 156 GTA would have been better RWD? Or are they dadd's cars as well? Is a BMW M5, or an AMG Merc E class a daddy's car? How about a Jag?
I'm sorry, but to me they are pimped up daddy's cars..
The evolution of cars has created so many monsters (SUVs, subcompacts etc..) with car makers paying more attention to what a customer would like than to common sense.
We are pursuing the wrong parameters: a perfect car doesn't have to have loads of HP and an impressive 0-60, it has to be a well balanced vehicle that can be driven to its max in almost any condition.
What we have nowadays are deformed monsters, which we would easily crash everytime we go out if it wasnt for all the ABS, ESP, ASR etc..
Take my car: it looks gorgeous, it feels really cool, but it's heavy and it understeers as soon as it's given the chance to. People have them modified to have that extra HP, but the truth is that it's quite an unstable car as it is, with massive engine torque and not so much output power.
Why I bought it then? Because I know I'm not gonna use it as a race car, I'm just gonna enjoy the looks and comfort of it until something better comes out.
You can have way more fun driving an old Mini Cooper on a track than a latest generation M3, where computers make sure you don't screw up. It's safer and has an incredible amount of power, but is it as much fun as driving an old car without servos and computers? Hardly.
To go back to the point, all the alleged "sporty" saloons are meant to partly satisfy our drivers' ego, because sometimes we have to compromise and can't use (or afford) a proper sports car. There's nothing wrong with that, but don't forget they're NOT what you think they are, once again they're just pimped up daddy's cars.
