If I were a drag racer I'd own a Charger or a Malibu. I love road racing so I own a Porsche. That's most likely why you have seen the sentiment displayed that you mention above.
I can appreciate the engineering that went into building that car (not to mention the $$$) but I get turned off when I see a parachute hanging off the tail and all the blingy drag stuff protruding out of the firewall. By the way, I think all drag cars are ugly, not just this one.
Didn't mean to offend you; it's just different strokes for different folks.
