It really is. And if you listen closely on some of the reviews (check out the recent Throttle House comparison of GT4 vs Spyder), the engine doesn't sound good/come alive on the last gen or the new gen until over 5k. So you basically have 1 gear for any street driving, and it's first gear.

Doesn't change that the GT4 is a fabulous track car, and just an amazing mid-engined piece of work at a great price really for what it is. There's nothing bad about the car, and I'll want one badly until I get one in the garage, but when it comes to choices, usability, and non-track dedication, the CS won, and other choices also made their way above it and the GTS 4.0
