Default Better driver's car: Performante vs RWD

Would be a Spyder for road use, wouldn't see the track. Generally prefer RWD cars for the steering response and better front end, but curious to hear input from those that have experience with both

Depends on what you're looking for.

For point-to-point speed on straights, twisties and in the wet, the 640-4 absolutely destroys the 580-2.

For donuts or drifting the backend, a 580-2 is the one to get.

The HP is far superior to the 580-2 on every objective metric as well as being far more engaging, compelling and thrilling to drive in any environment.

Not sure how steering response would be better in RWD vs AWD. I have a 911 TTS, AWD, and an HP AWD...and I don't think that steering response is better than a RWD car. In fact, my TTS is AWD/ AWS and is very precise. My HP, although not AWS, is very precise in terms of steering.

What I would say is that RWD would require more driver input to avoid moments of "Oh sh!t"

When in Corsa mode on the Performante, it puts most of the power into the rear wheels, it can feel like a rear wheel car.

Not so...it's still AWD and does not feel in any way like RWD in Corsa...on mine.

All else being equal, in theory the reason for this is that when RWD the front wheels have only one job, steering, and all of the available traction goes towards front end grip. In an AWD system the available grip is split between steering/handling and putting down power

Also losing front end weight from AWD drivetrain makes front end lighter

As Coincident put it, "the HP is far superior to the 580..."

Steering included here as well
