    Let me be clear. I'm 44 years old, have had my fair share fast cars ranging from R Volvo's to MB AMG's. However although my car is a GT PP1, I tend to really like to cruise. I don't feel the absolute need to smoke the tires at every stoplight nor drive like Tom Cruise in Days of Thunder. I love the fact when I want to put my foot down, the power is unleashed but normally I just cruise. Maybe because I think she looks soo good.

    Anyone else feel the same?

    Sometimes? I still like to roast the rear tires every now and then :D. Definitely do not drive nearly aggressive compared to 10 years ago.

    This car can take it esp when stock!

    Well when I say drive like a granny, I'm not talking about 10-15 mph under the speed limit. I'm more talking that I get on it occasionally but most of the time I just like to cruise and enjoy the ride.

    I drive like a granny, assuming this granny launches from every stop light and practices her 1/4 mile on the freeway onramp.

    Yep, I drive pretty slow now. I rode motorcycles until 2 years ago, and after so many miles on Hayabusa's, everything on 4 wheels feels slow, so thats how I roll.

    65 and I don't think age has anything to do with how you drive the car. This car was designed to excite and exhilarate the driver. Obviously it's not working for the OP.
    For me I love the sound (thank you Borla) and the feel of rowing through the gears with 400 hp. I love the IRS. I love the sport mode on back roads. It's a hot rod. It's exciting to drive!
    And I do so as it was intended - animated :like:
