If they switched it to RWD, the already tight rear would probably lose even more space. Plus that 6.2L V8 gets you a $2200 gas guzzler tax (I think it may be lower now but still . . .).
True but a gear head can dream...

People need to understand that power isn't everything, especially if you don't know how to use it. And Lambos, Blacks, M6, and R8's aren't really track day cars. The GTR and GT3 should smoke the 45, but if you don't know how to drive it other than showing off launch control to friends, then you might as well drive a diesel.
