Once you lose control, the centralized mass prevents the car from letting either end from leading the spin, making it very hard to recover from. I also had an early 70's 911. That car wanted to spin if you even thought about letting up on the gas while turning.
Fiat X1/9, 2nd gen Toyota MR2 and a ‘97 Carrera S for me.
If you want to use high performer vehicle to its full extent you’d best learn how. Silly to blame the vehicle. The capabilities of a mid engined car exceed those of a Front engined one. That’s why the C8 has the motor in the middle.
Smart thing would be for new owners to attend a high performance driving school. Plus it’s a hell of a lot of fun!
