2006 Corolla XRS
The thing is, there are cars that fit certain needs better, but people try to stretch their needs to fit a car if that makes sense.
I will push back (a little) on this in that the GRC is maybe? probably? the more flexible of the three cars tested in this video, in that it can handle rough weather, carry people/things with a comfortable ride quality, and post competitive track times to boot. I think the 'all in one' appeal of the GRC is appealing to a lot of folks, too, which is why so many people can (try to) justify it.
