Fittingly it made a grand entrance into my life. There I was, standing alone at an abandoned desert warehouse taking photos of a BMW 330e while on a street-drive loop at the 2016 MPG Track Days press event, when a colleague of mine sees me, and yanks the handbrake to waltz the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo into the warehouse parking lot. Grinning from ear to ear, he says, “Dude! You’ve got to drive this next.”
I obeyed his command, jumped behind the wheel, and erupted with the most controversial set of opinions of my career.
