Generally, sports cars are very low to the ground. Although this helps with handling there is a downside in that there's not a lot of vertical wheel travel available and you end up with a compromised ride quality, says Drury. Not something most people would expect out of an expensive sports car. Drury goes on to add that, a low front end is far more susceptible to damage from objects, and going up certain driveways can be a hassle if not impossible. Low-ride heights also make trips to your favorite fast-food restaurant drive-through quite the chore, when you're not just reaching out, you're reaching out and up.
