    The male in the back left of the pic is 6'1", the female, 5'9". Front seat left female 5'10", driver 6'1". Notice the helmet clearance.

    It ran quicker than well over 3/4 of the sports cars (mostly light 2 seaters) at a tight Autocross (closed course time-trial roadrace, tight track), and even dusted a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette and Subaru STi WRX. Yes, with 4 adults in the car. This is entirely about handling at under 65 mph.

    The mystery car has 110 cubic feet of interior cabin space, is AWD/AWS, weighs 4400lb, and gets >27 mpg highway at 75-85 mph (EPA highway 26 mpg). It has a 3 liter engine.

    Testing was done with babysitters "ALL OFF". No TC, No SC. Wearing treadwear 500, all-season tires, full depth, set at factory settings. Driver is an intermediate level skill driver.

    The electric version was a disappointment. I'm ashamed of the mfr. They could have made the PHEV version a World Beater but did not. 20953634_10214410708089340_8162933483781802143_n.jpg

    Not too many cars that have an electric version out there. I'd guess it's a Cadillac CT6 with the 3.0L twin turbo engine based on that comment and the amount of room in the cabin.

    Winner!!! Damn, should have left the EV comment out of there.

    I was surprised how nimble the car was. Very few cars that day went quicker.
