Wow - obviously a total Ford lover and maybe has a little bit of heart for the Lotus.
What a (not) wonderfully written article.

It's rear wheel drive still and probably could never keep up with an R8 in the twisties.(without TONS of suspension work).

Facts are facts but the adjectives this guy uses do not sound very impartial (or professional).
"... the benign BMW M3 (3:05.4), the weak Porsche Cayman S (3:05.8), the fat Jaguar XKR (3:06.4), the awful Audi S4 (3:10.8), the girly Audi TT-S (3:08.4), the overpriced Nissan Nismo 370Z (3:12.0), the lightweight Lotus Exige S (3:05.0) and even the goofy VW Golf GTI"

Then there's the neanderthal dialogue following the piece for your entertainment ...

Previous machines ... a variety of Porsches (E, SC, 930, 993)
It is a fact of life that lots of people just don't get it with regard to the R8 and other cars in its class. They have a particular way of defining the merits of a car, such as 0-60 times. The worth of an entire vehicle to them is defined in that one number. They are not willing or capable of looking at an overall experience that a vehicle delivers. This guy is clearly in that league.
Asking him to judge or assess an R8, is like playing Mozart to a cow and then asking for a concert review.
sounds like someone who posts like this to draw attention to their site by sparking debate on other car forums.
