Hello! It's not just you, but it's also not right IMO. It's been said before but frankly I disagree.
Why would one tolerate poor efficiency in the 21st century? Isn't poor fuel economy an anachronism? Since materials and management systems have come so far, why would anyone not expect high efficiency no matter what the output of the motor?
A car that just wastes fuel doesn't, by definition, "do it all" no matter how fast or interesting it might be otherwise.
