The infamous Corvair which was villanized by Ralph Nader was actually a ground-breaking design for American car makers. When the Corvair came out, Detroit was at the peak of its “bigger is better” years. The Corvair was a sporty, rear-engined, mid-sized car which competed with the imports like Volkswagen, Toyota and Fiat but was totally un-like the other models being offered by American makers.
Ralph Nader published his book “Unsafe at any Speed”in 1965 claiming that the Corvair was prone to losing control in extreme conditions. Though there were other studies showing that the Corvair was no worse than other cars of its time, the Nader book was the rise of the push for automotive safety and the decline of the Corvair.
As it sits here, I don’t think there is any chance of an accident due to handling problems at high speeds.
